Our priest has asked me to see if I can mend this vestment.
He wore it for his first Mass and for special occasions since.
Here are the labels from inside
I did some internet searching and found the Dr Oidtmann studios associated with stained glass, and the Hubert Gotzes Art Weavery is now a museum in Krefeld Germany.

There are several areas that need mending, or maybe re-weaving, which is beyond my expertise.
|The warp threads are disintigrating|
|More damaged warp threads|

Taco John's breakfasts....
In a previous post I mentioned that both my husband and I won $5.00 Taco John's breakfast certificates by answering trivia questions on our local radio station at 6:40 in the mornings.
We were able to use them last week. I had 2 small breakfast burritos, scrambled egg with either sausage or bacon accompanied by some potato oles and a bottle of orange juice. Farmguy had a scrambled egg plate that started with a layer of potato oles, then scrambled eggs, some sausage or bacon (your choice) shredded cheese, tomatoes and peppers. They were good, but not something we would like to eat every day, there was more spice heat than we normally eat in for breakfast.
I have now been using the Sourdough starter for several weeks. I am not using it exclusively for all our bread but maybe every other loaf.
For storage, it is suggested that you use non-reactive materials, so I am using glass.
The lid is an antique glass lid from back when they started to use 2 piece canning lids, this would have been used with a rubber sealing ring and the screw band would have probably been zinc, as I have some of them.
I have made biscuits and pancakes as well. It makes a good bread, and the biscuits and pancakes were very good.
It isn't hard to deal with, just a bit different and you need to plan ahead a bit more.
I have made sourdough bread both by hand and in the bread machine, using the french bread setting on the machine. It works pretty good. The bread is moister, and doesn't dry out as easily as regular bread.
Long past time for bed at a quarter to 12 midnight, so will show my tatting in another post, as this is really long enough. I have been tatting. lots off snowflakes I can now show and I am participating in the TIAS.
Have a good night, and maybe I will be able to post again tomorrow night.
P.S. by the way, our night time temps have been in the -20 F s Yesterday's high was -5F and today we got up to a balmy 5 above. Yeah for North Dakota in January.
