Civil War Days Ladies Roles

Okay, here are the other images from Civil War Days. Ladies ran the "bath" houses as they say. This poor soldier was freezing in the tub as he reinacted. The ladies were a riot. They justified their professions as part of the War effort. Ironing and washing soldiers clothes was an additional fee..... And to attempt! to make this a knitting post, I give you the ladies preparing for the Ball. Details sure make the blue dress lovely eh? I need to work on details with my own knits.
The log cabin blanket is finished. It blocked well. Now I have to find a baby to enjoy it....
Maybe I'll save it ............When I have a baby to model it, I'll show the finished blankie to you.
