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
