Have you ever bought a copy of a book you already had because you forgot you had it? I just learned that I did that with a historical reproduction brooch I bought for a costume. Interested in a 7th-8th century Danish bronze brooch? If so, go here for the entry.

The obligatory photographs of the Greek head wrap I made a few days ago for a Historical Sew Monthly project. It's not as flattering as I'd hoped, but I think my next attempt at making one will be better. Go here for the entry.

Remember a few months ago, when I wrote about the history of the slow cooker and learned that it was invented by a Jewish man who remembered how his grandmother cooked cholent, a traditional stew? I tried making a cholent recipe, but it didn't work out for me. Finally, I post briefly about the debacle. Go here for the entry.

New Entry from "Loose Threads"--HSM Challenge #2--A Blue Iron Age Skirt, Completed!

In which I turn a failed peplos overdress into a pretty good skirt. Go here for the entry.

EDIT: 2/27/2015 Corrected the title of this entry to match the change over at Loose Threads--I keep forgetting that the Huldremose find, which inspired my blue skirt, is an early Iron Age find, not a Bronze Age one.
