This and that
Got a delivery from sartor yesterday
The gorgeous big blue griffins were intended to make cushions for the two crowns, but his majesty has decided his purple silk tunic isn’t long enough, so now they’re destined for the bottom of his tunic and I have to order more silk for the cushions.
it will be the same silk again, because it’s the only one I like. And also because having ones monarch coordinate with ones soft furnishings is all the medieval rage…
the purple eagles are for a new throne canopy, as john and I have both been long unhappy with the old one, and when I saw this I knew it was perfect.
i will have to trim the purple though, since it’s a bit too wide, so maybe the oFfcuts can line the enamelled casket which came back from the gilders( via a huge delay on the m1, ggrrrrr….) this morning
My workshop time next week will be spent making hinges and mounting it up.
workshop time this week didn’t involve finishing anything as such, but I did find my gold reserve…
There might even be two whole grammes there.
i can see you’re all overawed by my obvious wealth.
but, in between working on larger projects, I used the gold reserve to get a head start on a few Christmas presents.
I haven’t decided who will get what yet, and they won’t get pins until they’re assayed, but I think they’re cute. The sheep is my favourite.
ow. I am bleeding. Just got run over by a startled cat.ow.
