Just as well the extra cloak I was finishing was left on the bed: it was only 12 degrees over night. She is forecast to go below 10 degrees at night for the next 7 days. Definitely need to make more cloaks/dig out more of the old ones. There are advantages to having a large woollen cloak collection. I am also looking forward to the fact that we will have the cloaks, flockarti rug, psuedo fur rug and woolen caps/hats for sleeping in/on at Festival.
And on the Festival progress front:
Tent 1 has the door/wall seams done and the base of the doors hemmed. Only door ties, trimming and side edge to go, but that does need a flat area and an extra person to put up and measure/mark. Also rope along base for pegging down walls.
Tent 2 has 3/10 eyelets done, but only needs 3 more and the guy ropes attached before it is put-up-able for the door positioning etc. Then it is waterproofing, doors to walls on the base and the same sequence as Tent 1.
Yellow linen tunic neckline repaired and wearable. Eowyn sideless surcoat de-looped so now more period. That was the only repairs I had, but Z tends to beat up his clothing more...
2nd cushion now finished, which means one for sleeping on and a spare for hitting people with. The embroidered one started in a fit of procrastination/curiousity at work can be ongoing.
2 green wool cloaks done - one for alpha_angel
to use and any more finished will be retailed. I don't think I can make it through the full ~40+m left - Z has already sold the rest.
I wont start on the list of smaller things that are started and need finishing or need starting... satchel, hose, cloaks ...
That and pursuading the occasional workmate or two that they want to come out to the Festival Market day, so helping them with clothing etc...
Plenty to do.
Edit: And managed a 4 strand plait in hair. Bit messy and it definitely wont work in dutch or french mode, but still works. Would try 5 strand which should work dutch or french, but I don't think I have enough fingers...:)
