Well - I intended to attend a medieval market/camp this week-end, unfortunately something else (well, several interviews to get a new job) crossed my plans.
But I was still quite medieval - with dance repetitions and by sewing stockings! Well - for hot weather I have now a pair of nice white linnen stockings, I am now sewing another, light-weight linnen pair, while waiting the wool to dry...
Once you've got a pattern, sewing becomes easily again.
Other thing - I have found on the ZVAB
the book: "Die Welt der Schweizer Bilderchroniken" (The World of the Swiss medieval Codexes - with a huuuuuge amount of really nice and really good pictures from the Schilling Chronics, and some *yummy* dress pictures of a Lucerne people dance! So nice - and happy me - it's only 20 Euros!!)
Well, I'll return to the sewing needle: Next weekend, I will (hopefully) attend the "Hinterweidental-Meeting" in Germany, and I do want to make a good impression on Helga. (Hej, I even got an apron now ;-) )
P.S.: Wasn't it Jane Austen, who was quite mad about stockings??
