Dont Faint------Its an ACTUAL update

Dont faint--I have an actual, for real, update. Part of the long delay was the apparent kidnapping of my camera into my youngest daughter's room (it is a pit of doom) and my laptop not being too healthy. I finally took it in a couple days ago--so I am posting from my work computer....shhhhh.....don't tell my boss.

First an update on my long neglected Iris

Still have some frame stitching to do, but it is getting there.

I have also joined the Georgia Regency Society, a chapter of the Regency Society of America.

The GARS had its first event today--a High Tea at Sugar Plums Tearoom in Canton GA.

VERY beautiful setting as it was completely decked out for the Holidays. Very beautiful interior. The tea service was good--loved the little teapot-shaped sandwiches. I do not know what was on it, but they were yum!

GARS is run by the daughter of a very sweet woman I had the priviledge of hiring a while back, so it was a bit of a reunion as well. 

I would love to say I made my gown and chemise, but I didn't. I bought on eBay from a very wonderful woman who CUSTOM-MADE it for me. Her name is Wendy, and you can find her here

There were about 18 of us, all in early 1800's costuming--I think we all had a blast!

Love the Iris! They were one of my Mom's favorite flowers.

The tea looks like it was really fun and the costumes add so much to it.
