I’ve been incredibly busy with my last preparations for the LARP season during the last week. Good thing the semester’s over, this way I don’t have to fear neglecting my studies for my hobby.
I’ve never watched so many period films in so little time, honestly. I can recommend Miss Pettigrew Lives For a Day, it’s really sweet (except for the whole threat-of-the-second-world-war-pending-over-us-all thing, of course), and the characters are beautifully written. My latest entertainment has been the Hornblower adaption series with Ioan Gruffudd, though. Which means you’d hear a “damn, he’s pretty” every five minutes or so if you were here (which is not the only reason I’m watching this. No, really!).
My favourite accomplishment of the week is the turmeric-dyed fabric for my sash. Inspired by Soda, I just followed these instructions. Isn’t the colour great (I’ve been listing warm yellows as a favourite colour for a while now, I think it’s perfect)? It needs a lot of washing afterwards to get all the colour residue out. It’s necessary, though, to prevent the fabric from staining everything once it gets just a little bit damp.
I doubt I’ll have the time for another blog post tomorrow, so consider me gone (off to war!) for a week.
Have a great time (I surely will)! ♥
