Our favorite civil war event of the season
The 4th of July weekend is a big civil war event for the organization we reenact with, and it's our favorite event. We'll be out at a state park on the Willamette river this weekend, cooking over a camp stove, handsewing, wearing corsets and hoopskirts... I know some of you do reenacting, as well--are you out camping with your region's group this weekend, too?
Here are some pics from last year's 4th of July event. Lots of junk to haul out there in a trailer and set up...
All set up, our kitchen area:

Looking grand in a new dress...
Anyway. Sewing for civil war events and other era historic events is part of how I learned. It's definitely an odd hobby in some ways, but we've been doing it so long, we're pretty good at it by now. =) Can you tell I'm not thrilled about leaving the comfort of my home and jeans? Kidding... it'll be fun, it always is, but it's a lot of work!
Hope you all have a great holiday weekend.
