Lily Blanc Cliquer De Vitesse AND Hildebrand Mousehammer

Lily Blanc Cliquer De Vitesse
 Hildebrand Mousehammer

This past Saturday was our first week doing 
our turn at selling Raffle tickets in the 
Brisbane Mall Launceston.
selling the tickets all the way up to 
noon on the 24th June 2017.
 So the past 4 months I have been working on Neal's vest 
and my costume. 
Here is it soo far  (mine still needs things added to it 
up until the steampunk tasmania festival , but least it is now 
wearable in the mean time.)

Then since we were out in public in costume anyways
(those that know me would be surprised I dressed like this in public!)
On the way out of Launceston we went and took photos 
at steampunky looking things 

OH and closer look at the embroidery so far

(if some had of told me 4 years ago that i would move to 
Tasmania and be dressing up like this and going out in
public I would have told them that they were crazy)


Looking for the Steampunk Hats

We brought our hats and each of us decorated ours.
Knowing that my costume as not going to have a 
robot on it at all!! I knew what i wanted to put on 
my hat.

Now on to my costume !! Stay tuned !

What I did with my ART YARN

OK Christmas has came (or did it?) and gone 
and now it is time to get back into doing lots of 
fun things . Friday (two days ago) was our first 
weaving day back for the year . So I found the last
of my black merino yarn and my Art yarn. Warped up
the ashford sampler loom with the black and wound two
shuttles with the art yarn so that they have the colours starting 
at different places and one shuttle with black .
I did three rows of black yarn then followed by one of the art yarns
coming through the shed from the right coming out or the warp when
   the cocoon starts and then back in when it finishes so that 
all of them are not woven into the warp. Doing the same with the second
shuttle but starting from the left this time . Then followed but 
three plain weaves of black.
