*woohoooo* I am so excited!
I just managed to finish the major part of the planned “renovation work” at my new and also very first sewing and crafting room.
I am really very excited and happy about my renovation progress. The walls are painted white now and I just finished putting in the last part of the new flooring. I even managed to paint the baseboard and the visible parts of the door frame.
…and besides all the work at the house, I managed to finish another needle book with Klosterstich embroidery for my Travel & Largesse Fund.
Already for several days now I am busy working at my very first own sewing & crafting room as well as the adjacent rooms.
Though it seems to take forever, it somehow pleases me to see the progress. It feels like the house is becoming more and more my/our home.
When it comes to other hobbies besides sewing and embroidery, calligraphy is one of my favorite pastimes.
Whenever I feel that I need a break from my various embroidery and sewing projects, I try to work at calligraphy projects to clear my mind.

Recently I already posted about research & medieval embroidery inspiration and today I will answer another question of one of my dear blog members about my materials for embroidery – my threads, fibers and fabrics.
The actual question was: “…where do you buy the threads or fibers, and materials that they might have used back then?”.
Today I was working at the text for the next FAQ posting about embroidery materials. Unfortunately it takes much longer to put this new posting together than I first expected and it is still far from being complete… *sigh*
…and in already less then 2 hours my sweetheart and some good friends are kidnapping me to the SCA event “Tourney of the Foxes”.
Ok, the new posting isn’t finished yet and I should start preparing myself for a weekend event. But, well, I didn’t want to leave to “Foxes” without at least another posting for you with which you can start into your well-earned weekend.
Recently one of my blog members asked me a very simple but also very important question: Where shall she start her research?
Well, though this question seems to be a very simple one, the answer is by far not simple. And I really think that this is actually one of the most simple but also most interesting questions I was ever asked about my work.
