East King's Colors
This past Sunday I donated my second round of trims to the Ayreton gift basket. I'm not sure if I clarified, in previous postings, the difference between this gift basket donation and the last. The initial batch of trims went to a gift basket given to Their Royal Majesties of the Middle Kingdom. Many of the members of the Shire of Foxvale worked to contribute trims for that project. In the case of the second batch, I individually volunteered to donate trims. This basket is to be given to Their Royal Majesties of the Middle Kingdom, only to then be gifted to Their Royal Majesties of the East Kingdom during the annual Pennsic War.
East Queen's Colors
It was requested of me to make the trims in the individual colors of both the King and Queen of the East. The King's colors were red, gold/yellow, and white, while the Queen's colors were blue, green, and white. I produced a total of 24 yards for the basket, 12 yards of the King's colors and 12 yards of the Queen's colors. Unfortunately, I still only had my mini loom to work on. It only produces 1.5 yards at a time and it was requested that I have 3 yards of each pattern, so I had to make two of each. The good news is that I've finally acquired a new and bigger loom. Yay!!!
