I had my qualifying paper topic defense today. It went well, and I'm now 'officially' working on 18th century calash bonnets and the conservation of a calash bonnet as my qualifying paper for FIT. Woohoo!

I started to read Harry Potter 3 today and am on page 106. I had a lot of time, ha.

I also wrote a lot of emails tonight regarding my MSU thesis.

Also, I'm trying to move slowly away from pattern sewing and really start making my own patterns. I have done this slightly before with some of my sewing, but a majority of it is from following a pattern. The first project I'm going to take on for making my own pattern is this Nicole Miller dress:

I just fell in love with it - I'm not 100% sure I will be remaking it in yellow, but I really like the design. I'm excited. The project is still in its infancy, but I will be sure to post pictures of my progress once I get moving.

Last night I worked on my embroidery a lot, and I plan to continue some more this evening. It's relaxing and I really want to finish it!

That is exciting about your thesis! I was going through files on the Edmonds painting I will be working on for my thesis and I came across a paper about bonnets. But what the student did was look at "The New Bonnet" painted by Edmonds which portrays a young woman showing off this expensive looking bonnet to her somewhat lower class family, and then compare and contrast bonnets or something like that. I thought of you :-)

LOVE this. I would love it in a bright fuschia or pink even more. What colors are you thinking of doing?

I'm really not sure. I'm going to go fabric hunting, and find two coordinating fabrics - whatever I find, will be what it is! haha
