All the aiglets... so I have a new obsession.
So as with many things, this started out one day with the usual thought "I wonder what I can do with that". That, in this case, was about a kilogram of honey which my sister had brought me from some hives they had at home. And what can I do with it turned out to be making some short mead.
Recipe and instructions for scaling the chicken and bacon pies that Katherina and Anna made for lunch at May Crown Tournament in 2015.
Since meeting The Modern Maker, I've become slightly obsessed with the scaled bara measurement system that Mr Gnagy lays out in it.
I've decided to experiment a bit with it, and have redrafted my standard shirt layouts using it, rather than our pedestrian metric system.
I need to find some folks to mug to see whether the scaling works, and specifically whether I've rounded off assorted measurements in the correct directions as I've gone from metric to Bara.
Second Brick Stitch Pouch
Period: 14th- 15th Century Germany
Inspiration: Heavily inspired by an extant pouch in the Victoria and Albert Museum but not an exact copy.
I've just started playing with sprang, and I wanted to experiment with various techniques without trying to produce a historically-accurate item. The result: a stripey, lacey bag for my favourite child.

I wore it for the first time at St Sebs.
