I am making great progress with the Georgian project. At least, it seems great progress to me, now I have time to work on it full-time. I can recommend this retirement lark!
I have had a couple of research visits to look at materials in collections, one to the Kay-Shuttleworth Collection at Gawthorpe Hall, and one to Leeds Museums Discovery Centre. Both have some stunning 18th century items in their collections, which cause me some heartache in the difficulties of getting the fabrics they used, especially the very fine muslins.
