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 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

My Noblesse Largesse project went to a lady out in Atlantia, who stated in her dossier that she liked paternosters and the colours green and red.

This piece isn't necessarily a period piece, but … Continue reading Ask Me Anything!

For those not in Calontir (or with kingdoms that don't have a similar competition), Queen's Prize Tournament is a time for Calontir artists that do not already … Continue reading Queen’s Prize 2016
The upcoming reign in Calontir is a Norse one, and I've been assisting a bit in researching largesse items. I've also been working on some other items, so come along with me on what I've been doing so far. First thing up is researching small token items that Her Highness could give out. After putting … Continue reading Sailing Northward
This past weekend was Winter Coronation for Anton III and Isabeau III, with a Torse in any Medium contest. Having just gotten a Dremel for Christmas, and as I had a large piece of copal to experiment on, it was a great chance to try something new. The copal was sourced from a family friend … Continue reading A Torse is a Torse, of course, of course
