Can I have a drum roll please....
For I am delighted to announce that the windows of 13 Piccadilly Terrace are now finally dressed!
Several weeks ago as I was counting down the days to the photo shoot for publication in the February issue of the Dolls' House Magazine as well as musing about my plans for the celebration of a 'Christmas Past' and a recreation of that infamous betrothal between Lord B and Annabella Milbanke for January 2014 and with the promise of another exciting possibility or two; I finally set off on the 'Road Less Traveled' as it were.
Yes, I finally found my way to the storage cupboard to locate the box labelled 'Soft Furnishings for Lord B's House' that had been patiently waiting for me and was now covered in a respectable layer of dust.
With a faded instruction sheet in hand and surrounded by a pile of sumptuous silks and an assortment of other essential needlework paraphernalia and while under the watchful eye of a small ball of fluff that now answers to the name of 'Murphy'; I finally created a pair of curtains and finished them off with the obligatory signature of the Regency - the elaborate swag!
The Drawing Room of 13 Piccadilly Terrace in the Year 1815...
The name of the lavish silk used to dress the windows of the Drawing Room at 13 Piccadilly Terrace is called 'Blood Red' which is rather appropriate considering that my fingers will bear the scars of that particular day's work for some time to come!
Bye for now!
