Who Am I? And Why Am I Here?
Elewys of Finchingefeld, GdS, JdL

This is a place to which I may post my research, my experiments, my successes...and yes, my failures...for medieval re-creation and research on my never-ending quest to learn and revel in knowledge and experiences.
I am a lady of many times and many places. Currently using a 15th century English name, dressing in a 10th century Danish dress, and camping in a Mongolian round house. "Lost" doesn't even begin to describe my persona.

Now that the tourney season has drawn to a close, it's time to begin repairs to favorite garments and replacing outgrown clothing. Ben needs a new wardrobe of tunics--light, medium and heavy as well as lightweight and warm pants; Cammie needs a couple medium and heavy tunics; and Emma needs a complete wardrobe. She chose the type of dress she wants, and I didn't get very far in creating it--ran into several stumbling blocks. However, she changed her mind and decided she wanted kimonos instead. Now I just need to make a few coordinating garments--warm kimonos, pants, cloth hose, etc. Kelly would like a couple of lightweight tunics and a couple of heavy tunics, and a couple more pairs of pants (and I have to repair the brown pants I made for him last year where the seam tore out). Not to mention the tunic I still have to make for Tyrssen...one more for that guy.
