Hello all

Hi Everybody

Hope that all is well and doing great reenachment og crafts this summer.
We have been very absent from the blog over the last year. It´s not that we don´t do medieval or viking reenachtment - but our modern life have been taking a lot of time. And the time for making blog posts and such have been minimal. Still it is great to see so many new readers and that people still find it interesting to read ours post on medieval pies, woodworking, plant dyeing, and leatherworking.

One of the reasons that the time for blogging have been low is that we last June found out that we were expecting af little girl. She was to come in the early start of 2013. But despite of all ods she decided to come 10 weeks to early and we ended up spending 3 months at the hospital. Despite of the early start all went well and she is now big and growing as expected. We havent been on many markets since she came and the ones that we have been to have only been as modern turists. This weekend my workplace, Bork Viking Habour, had the big annual viking market. And we all went as vikings!

I had made viking clothes for Laurine - a little white smock in linnen, a yellow wollen apron dress with silk ribbons and tabletweaving, and a smal silk cap made from madderdyed needlebinding. She looked so cute and we were very much photografed. Here are some of the photos.

This last photo was taken by a Danish photografer, Jim Lyngvild. See other photoes of vikings on his Facebook page. He have just made a danish book about vikings and also a cookbook with viking food.
