Website updates

After a lot of thought, I figured it was well and truly time I updated the links of the tutorials pages to actually say "tutorials" in the html page names in stead of DIY patterns, which was how it started out. Other tutorials have been added, and it's just neater page naming. This kind of thing bugs me so much.

Of course, that means I need to reload the entire website again.

I'm going to take the Bohun Psalter stuff off for now too, since I really have abandoned that project since the book came out


Stones and Roses

What's keeping me up late tonight is thinking about the new bath display and whether I'd like to paint a new backdrop for the tent walls- a stones-and-roses one like I first came to see in the documentary about Guedelon Castle in Burgundy, France. It's a very mid 13th century thing though, so possibly not appropriate for early 14th century displays. Durham Cathedral also has some, pictured here. How late were they used? I simply don't know for sure.

I really think I'd like some. I think they'd really look fantastic with the roses bed hangings I haven't used yet.

I'm idly wondering how to keep my kitty off the paint while it was drying. I feel like I actually have all the right colours of paint already, so I'd just need fabric...
