In the meantime I have also been doing some sewing. I'm doing a bit of experimenting with shapes and pleating, so I'm just using old patchwork fabric from my stash and making notes as I go. If I like it and it works out OK I'll use some proper dress fabric. No sense wasting good fabric.
So, back to the new wig. It didn't look all that bad hanging on the line ( bottom right picture. It looks darker than it actually is ) However, as it dried it frizzed up again. I tried to tame it, but it only got worse. It's alright if you like the wild and unruly look. It doesn't look that bad in the photos, but the slightest touch and it slides off. I put a piece of blue-tack inside to try and hold it on! As you can see the cap only just perches on top of her head! Keep it or not?
... and other musings
This quilt I have been working on during the summer months for the last couple of years. I rooted it out for this summer and it needed a good press. It's made using Mary's Triangle blocks. There are 324 triangle blocks ( 2 in each fabric colour to mirror image ) then 76 edging blocks with 2 colours and a plain strip on each one. Some pieces are still individual squares and some are joined into 4 and then into strips and so on. It wasn't going to be this big, but as each piece only takes a very small amount of fabric, it got bigger and bigger! The whole thing is entirely stitched by hand as it's for when I'm sitting in the garden and I can just work on it in my lap. It's going to take a couple more summers yet!
