|Grey Wool Tudor Kirtle with Blackworked bag, Chatelaine, and Partlet|
Wearing one to the Lewisburg Arts Festival Demo tomorrow. So should have some good period
1560's English photos with me spinning wool. Taking some of my embroidery to show late period examples. Encouraging Sca aren't going to other events to come and join the encampment. Its all day then going to help a friend with a sewing emergency. So a busy weekend!
My friend who was upgrading to a newer vehicle, did get a high mileage used car to get me through the next year or so. I do not want to use it for events, don't trust it far from home. Though I have car pulling arrangements with the same friend to get back and forth from farther away events. Though I have a gold dragon and its name is Nugget ;-) I'm very blessed to have a great network of friends and family to lean on in this tough time. I hope to have new employment soon, have jobs possibilities on the line now to hook a good one :-)
Still have to make some leg armor for my friend and some eyelets for a gambeson. Plus pleat a surcoat shoulders and finish the trim for next weekend. Not impossible but a busy week, coming down to the wire. Crown tournament is next weekend and have to get all this ready by then, its my first and super excited. I plan on learning much during this event in regards to tournaments. I have been working most events so I rarely see festivities much other than court on occasion. This is his first crown too so should be educational.
