Had to take a trip to Copenhagen with the Family this weekend.
(So 5 hours by train each way.)

On the trip back today our 2 year old daughter sleept for almost 3 hours.
So I decided to use the time constructively..

not sew easy!
I posted some articles from my ancestor’s trunk a few minutes ago. But here are some close-ups of the pants Caroline sewed for her husband ( killed on battlefield Atlanta 22 July, 1964). His clothing was sent home to her by his Captain. Also, here is a bonnet Caroline sewed for herself. These are around 1862.

She was lucky to get these! My gr-gr-gr-grandfather's records, sent to his widow, clearly state that all his clothes were destroyed. But his might have been contagious.
