There are a zillion different kinds of embroidery, and I’ve tried most of them at one time or another. Probably my favorites to date have been counted cross stitch and crewel, but I have a hankering to try Hardanger. I’ll let you know.
Another reenactor once overheard a mother telling her children, “No, dear, that’s not a real fire, they have gaslines under the ground!” Well, even if this outlandish idea were true, my question would be, what’s “not real” about a gas fire? Anyway, this is a real wood fire, and yes, we really do cook all our families’ food on them while we are at the shows.
