Then along came this Viking ship, it's not finished, its still a work in progress. I need to make some shields, then it will be done. After that I think I'll make a really big one, a friend named Joan wants me to put her in it when she dies and push her out to sea aflame like a Viking (or in her case Celtic goddess). What a way to go, huh?
If I ever learn to weave I can weave a Viking sail and really go native, my grandfather, Peter Halstensen would be proud I'm sure! Wish I could have known him but my father was the last son, actually the 7th son and I am the last daughter of the 7th son. Anyway he died before I was born but the stories are that he liked to make everything himself....kind of like me!
