Spring renewal means new regalia

So now that the small spring powwows are over and the summer season is well on the way it's time for the creative juices to flow.  I have made Derek a new shirt and myself a new dress and shawl.

I am now going to put together a new dress for hoop dance using this fabric.  Fingers crossed it comes out well.
