On Hiatus Until October 7th

I’ll still be cooking but not blogging food. Something we do outside of the kitchen is reenact 1855, and the site where we reenact has one of the biggest events on October 5th and 6th this year. When we tried on garments this year, everyone had grown shockingly, so our list of items to be sewn quickly is amazing. We do cheat and use the machine on hidden seams, as the sewing machine had been invented by then and was available, but all of the visible seams we try to do by hand, and that’s a lot of stitching! We are all-hands-on-deck at this point, and every free moment we are wielding needles.

I’ll be back on the other side, blister on my thimble finger!
