Merry Christmas 1066

This past Christmas my wife commissioned a tree skirt from our friends at the RavenStone Castle featuring fragments from the Bayeux Tapestry.  I hope to eventually theme the whole tree with appropriate medieval decoration.  Then I hope to convince someone to play a Battle of Hastings scenario next to the tree....anyone?
Rose Michel does an amazing job turning medieval fabrics into tapestries and various decorations which she sells at rennaissance fairs and craft shows around the country.  She also sells them from her home, a massive castle built in the county in Harvard, Illinois which she and her family run as a Bed and Breakfast.
