Making, re-making and really not that stressed out

Somehow I survived this week and after most of the stuff was picked up yesterday, and after I managed to pack all of Rickard's and Maja's stuff in the morning before my lecture today I didn't feel stressed anymore. I haven't done the absolute final packing with sthe stuff I'm bringing with me in teh car tomorrow, and I haven't finished my classnotes. But it's okay, I have some time to work on that tomorrow.

So I spent the evenign on the balcony with Anna, drínking tea and re-making an old liripipe hodd of Maja's, and my old green silk bliaut.
Maja couldn't pull the hood over her head anymore, so I opened it and made buttonholes and sewed on brass buttons.

Then I remade the neck opening on my green silk bliaut. The reason why it had such a deep opening was that I needed to be able to nurse Maja. But now when a) I haven't nursed for ten years and b) I fit into it again I unpicked the trim, shortened it and sewed the slit together.

I'm not bringing it to Double Wars, since Måns and I have chosen the late 13th-early 14th century as our period during our reign, but I might wear it to a picnic in June, which is a less official event.
