Happy birthday to the creator of science fiction!

Happy birthday Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley! She's been depicted in frock flicks by Elsa Lanchester in Bride of Frankenstein (1935). See more on FrockFlicks.com at https://buff.ly/3chopjI

Talk about crossed paths!

Making history seem fun. Snapshots from the past with compelling stories you’ve never heard about.

Gorey’s ‘sinister whimsy’ has influenced other oddball creatives including Lemony Snicket and Tim Burton

I just heard from the Carousel Museum. I had everything lined up for a BIG comeback this year, but due to Omicron, they are not having any events larger than 50 people. I am so sorry. We WILL be back! Just... not this spring.

Do not try them at home.

'Steal Away' is bound to be a very good movie, because few life stories tell as well as the life story of Robert Smalls.

Taking down the green triangles. Like when I was doing the white bars for the flowers, often, lines don't lie flat and pretty until you sow a third row, so these need a little help. I'm using the same thin gold thread I used for the marking lines, as they're an accent, but I don't want them to be too noticeable.

Last night's work. One more round of the bright red. This is really at the point where I could leave it alone, but it's not to the original plan yet. Then again, the original plan didn't include this current round. We'll see!

Planning for next year's Brass Ring begins this week!! The New England Carousel Museum got a huge number of display donations this year (yay!), so their floor plan is a little different than usual. I'll be checking them out on Friday and setting a date. STAY TUNED!

OH WOW is this years Brass Ring going to be fun! Of course, we can't be together in person. Instead, we're teaming up with the creators of the BEST escape room I've ever played, Escape New Haven, to solve puzzles, collaborate, negotiate, and scheme to solve a mystery. There will be prizes! But mostly, there will be a lot of fun.

Our event will be on Saturday, March 20, at 4pm, on the online event space Gather. Each player will need their own computer. Once you've signed up, you will receive an email with a practice link, so you can log in and explore how the game space works before you actually play. We expect the game to run about an hour and a half to two hours. You will not be on camera for any of this, so play in your PJs, or dress in your Steampunk finest. Or, do one and say you're doing the other. We won't judge :)

That same email will be an opportunity for you all to send messages to the other players. Merchants can have their store listed, or events can post links to their sites, or individuals or businesses can put up a logo. As always, we will be donating profits to our once and future home, the New England Carousel Museum.

I am definitely building this into my next project dress.

I think next year, we should include some programming on race during the Victorian age. What do y'all think?
