England week - 17

Just keep sewing! well, this was my issue! trying desperately to keep sewing despite a 2 week migraine to get all the clothes ready for Kentwell, including a new doublet for DH. The week was pretty crazy busy for the girls. In home ed history, we have finally got to 1066 and the battle of Hastings. Am beginning to wonder whether we will get as far as the civil war let alone anything more modern! hmmm, thinking of civil wars, there are things like twotr first too! argh!

However, this week was a bookish week. DH mum is still staying with us. this is the second week as unfortuately DH dad really hasn't been well since FrB came, and is gradually having a few more problems. Lovely to be able to have MIL with us though whilst PIL is in hospital. All hoping he isn't in there for much longer. Many of our friends at Kentwell for the first week, so wed4ed didn't go ahead, and instead I took the girls to the raptor centre after they had done their morning work so that we could see the birds fly. BB was really unhappy that the reptile part was shut, however they did all get to fly an owl, which was rather fantastic!

Friday was orienteering and getting the last bits and pieces packed for Kentwell. Finally, ready for FrB to go and find out what all the fuss is all about!

sewing finished! we are nearly all signed off and approved for Kentwell 2014 - 1578 .


There is currently no change from last year. no new items and no adjustments. He is signed off in this. However, if I do make him a doublet, I will need to get check for the new clothes.

There are a no real changes from last year, so last years photos used for approval. I have put a small triangular piece in the front to add a 'kick pleat' I will need to make her a new jacket next year I think.

I have let down the growth panel in the kirtle, and have made a lightweight petticoate bodies for hot days.

our French daughter has been costume checked in the new 'a la mode' clothes for working females. She looks lovely
