a stitcher's view

We spent yesterday at Old Sturbridge Village's Redcoats to Rebels weekend. For my guys, it was all about the mock battles, the weaponry, the loud bang-bangs, the supercool (but super hot) uniforms and accoutrements. However, here's a taste of military history for those of us who are more interested in the gentle arts.

Dyeing, knitting...

bobbin lacemaking, spinning...
weaving, rugmaking.

Going back today for more!

Whoa, baby, I missed a few posts. WOW, though, what a full week!

Love Leah's designs. Has she submitted any patterns to magazines yet? She certainly has a future in fiber arts design.

Oh, I wish I could go to the Redcoats to Rebels weekend. Looks like a wonderful experience.
