Leaving for BW today. Antenatal clinic has cleared me for departure.

I sewed a few things, but I still need to finish Ulfgeirr's new pants. I think the upper sections are as they should be, but I want to try them on him to be sure the lower legs work as intended before I go cutting off the excess fabric. He has a new tunic; a very simple riff off a 16th century Persian undershirt. It's in a soft but heavy and slubby white linen/cotton fabric, and will probably look wrong and lazy to many, but the only shortcut I took was not to cut it into six pieces and sew them back together again in precisely the original configuration. I might do that another day, in a lighter weight fabric. I feel that so many seams in such a heavy fabric would defeat the purpose of the garment, which is to be "something clean to put on once fighting is done with".

If I feel that I have time once I have gotten the packing together, I might run one up for myself.

Meanwhile, Ulfgeirr is re-taping his swords and reassembling his shorter axe. And the kids are packed and waiting to be taken to the train station. I should go harass them into tidying up the kitchen a bit. *sigh*

The original seams were probably just to be efficient with yardage, so since that's not an issue, it will probably look fine.
