Ohh boy.... ohhh BOY.

I think I'd make bedlinens.  I'd say blackworked sleeves, but I've a  
plan for those, soon as I get time.  And a fully needleworked forepart  
or 10, instead of just the beaded ones I'm able to do (given time  
constraints).  Ohh, and needleworked nightgowns etc.  And probably some  
sort of tapestries, cause I like those.  And cushions for my dainty  

Ohh I could go on and on.  But I really think the things that most awe  
me about 15th-17th century needlework are the bedlinens and the  
tapestries.  I know I've no time to make those, not in my whole  
lifetime.  And yet... I wish, I dream,  I could.
