So, in the early days of the Internets, when rocks were soft and I was just starting out making 16th Century clothes there were two websites we would all go to. Festive Attyre and The Elizabethan Costuming Page. I was honoured to be a Featured Attyre with my first (and so far only) full Tudor court gown, with fur-lined turn-back sleeves and everything.

Yesterday I was even more honoured that my red petticoat was picked by Drea Leed to be the example of what a petticoat is: http://www.elizabethancostume.net/blog/elizabethan-petticoats/

I have been going Squee! like a total fangirl all morning :)

A thought

OK, so I have this crazy idea. The event Garden of Earthly Delights happens to be all about a Faire where you sit and do your crafts in an awesome environment where other people are getting their geek on. I've been pondering what I can do there, and the only thing I can really think of is embroidery. Nothing small and dainty, you understand, but yeah also kind of. I am thinking it would be fun to be working on my fourth set of coif and forehead cloth, which will be for myself.

Of course, that means that I will have to design it first. And gather the materials, and actually mount it in the frame and get started. And also travel with an over-sized fragile embroidery frame as carry-on luggage.

Wouldn't it be cool? But also very inconvenient and annoying. But what else should I do there? I'm sure all my time could be taken up as lady-in-waiting as well, since I'll be travelling with the Prince and Princess of Nordmark. Although it'll be out of their jurisdiction, so they shouldn't have too much business to deal with themselves.

ETA: And if I'm making myself a coif set I will need spangles, right? Right.
