Huge Tracts of… Linen

58-aspetti di vita quotidiana,abbigliamento lino,Taccuino Sa
If I had to be born a lady, why not a rich lady, so someone else could do the work and I could lie on a silken bed and listen to a beautiful minstrel sing while my servants hemmed? Instead I am the daughter of a country knight with but ten servants, seventy villagers, no minstrel, and acres of unhemmed linen.

from Catherine, Called Birdy by Karen Cushman
