Yay! New Project!

My copy of a Medieval Home Companion finally came in after much shipping drama. For those unfamiliar with the work, basically, an elderly man in Paris in 1393 married a 15 year old and wrote her a manual in how to be a good wife, since he would probably die soon and he wanted her to reflect well on him to her next husband. Yeah, I know, weird.

However, it is one of the most complete looks into housekeeping in the fourteenth century. The book also has some fantastic woodcuts, including a few of some dresses I would really like to make.

I plan to do a blog-along as I read. So you, too, can enjoy my reactions to the husband’s suggestions of his wife’s house-keeping.
