A Productive Weekend

So I was able to work some more on the embrodery on the green kirtle, almost finish my sleeveless kirtle experiment, fix a smock, repair my son's cotehardie outfit, add a couple of buttons to his undershirt, and went through my whole fabric stash and sewing area. I am now able to find everything!!!

My kirtle is finished except for adding the gaurd to the hem. I will also be making a pair of pin on sleeves out of the same fabric of the gaurd.

 So as for finding everything I found out I now have the fabric to finish some of the things I wanted to do.  Yeah!!!
