So, in this, the days of the panda's panini pandemonium, life in the SCA has continued. We have a new set of royals in Calontir, but because this is indeed the panda's panini pandemonium and also January, my partner and I decided that we could not really afford to travel to coronations. Now, if you … Continue reading Illuminated Fealty Oath
Hi all. I know, it's been a bit since I last blogged. With the global shutdown, and with my modern job heavily tied to taking care of contingencies just like this, I didn't have much time to devote to the Society. . .until I could then devote some time to my arts, for a bit. … Continue reading Creative Anachronism in the Time of Corona(virus)
So, over the Christmas holiday, I had the opportunity to go to an event in Meridies (hi Thor's Mountain!), and I seized the opportunity to sit and do some art while I was there. I wasn't sure what kind of art that I wanted to do, and I was kind of flying on what I … Continue reading Stretching Scribal Boundaries
Seriously. This is pretty close to what we had. I live just north of the green circle. Calontir Coronation was this weekend, and as is often the risk with midwestern kingdoms in January, we had the prediction of some pretty heinous weather. So not kidding - we had a winter storm warning issued that morning … Continue reading Making Choices; or why Konstantia wore one outfit over another
When Brigida, Gold Falcon Principal Herald, asked me if I wanted a crack at a scroll, I asked who it was for and I jumped at the the chance. You see, Andrixos (or Drx, more familiarly) wrote both my Calon Cross and my Court Barony scrolls, and it's always fun to get people back in … Continue reading Andrixos’ Herald Extraordinary
Being able to work on this was truly a joy. The work that Count Logan has done in researching banners and then teaching others, well . . . he gets it. And his work truly is amazing. When I started researching things for his scroll, I knew I wanted to do one of two things: … Continue reading Logan’s Silver Hammer
I know, I know. I haven't posted in a while. I promise I still live. I've been eaten alive by my modern work life and haven't really posted a lot of the projects I've been working on. I did finish the painting that's on the left for the Mews (it's the cover art for the … Continue reading I live. . .
When Brigida Gold Falcon reached out to me for a scroll commission, and I got the details, I squee'd. A lot. You see, when I got started in the Society, I needed to work on clothing, and a friend of mine had a quiet place behind a table. The herald's table. So, I sat … Continue reading Nikolai’s Herald Extraordinary Scroll
KWHSS was a blast. I got to hang out with my brothers, the Four Horsemen of the College of Arms, picked up some scribal goodies (and yet, somehow managed to stay under budget), and learned a lot. Plus, oh, the networking. Also, next year is in Calontir. Come see me. Come take some classes. … Continue reading KWHSS and yet another scroll diary.
I seem to be doing updates to my unfinished list, but on the other hand, it feels good to get things knocked off of a list. What is done: Nobelese Largesse Secret Project (blogged about here) Mar’s Quilt block (no photos, but it’s also done and I’m mostly happy with it) Write Pelican scroll text for Jaida … Continue reading Update on Projects
