Still no progress

My shoulder is better but still not good enough for sewing so I have no progress to share with you.  So how about another cabinet card?

We have this fabulous grand dame from Saratoga NY.  This lady had money!  Look at the detail on the skirt!  She has a ring, a bracelet, a bar pin, a chain under the lacy shawl and earrings. The lace shawl is why I bought this card!  It is fabulous!  The bar pin holds it closed at the throat but I’m not sure how she has it held so close to her waist.  I suppose it could just be straight pins holding it to the bodice.  With a corset there would be no risk of stabbing herself.  The parasol is fairly plain but somehow the pose says powerful matriarch. Hope you like this card as much as I do!
