Just a Note – Off to the Middle Ages – August 17, 2015

 

Hi Folks!

I’m getting ready for this year’s last re-enactment. Our company, Le Lame del Conte,  will be in Sluderno, Alto Adige (Italy) from the 20th until the 25th.  I’ll be leaving sometime on Thursday, I’ll travel first by train and will meet up with the company in Trento.

Right now most of my time is being taken up with my sewing machine.  In these days I’ve made a tunic and britches for for my son Francesco, a “smock” (kind of like a heavy-duty slip) for his girl-friend Livia and a sleeveless surcoat for myself (a sort of dress that covers your main kirtle and under dress, which I finished for the most part, yesterday.   I hope to be able to cut a similar sleeveless surcoats for Livia as well before I leave (I’m waiting for measurements) … but who knows how that will go!  And I want to cut out some coifs to sew on sight.

I also want to schedule a few posts for when I’m away …

So, I’m very busy and will have trouble answering your comments or reading and commenting myself.  Please bear with me.  I will be home sometime on Monday the 25th – probably in the evening, so I don’t think I’ll be writing until the 26th.

Have a great week … and see you all when I get back.

Ciao, Bastet
