In the closing days of this year, I'm doing a retrospective. (Yes, there's a few days left, but I'm not sure how many SCA-related projects I'm actually going to be able to get done by then, so. . .) I started with a fairly short list of things that should have been dealt with. Most … Continue reading End of the year project roundup: retrospective 2018
Updates have been hard for me lately. I've been dealing with some things to work through as of lately. I am pleased that the finished pile is getting larger, but the six items have been there for a while and I just need to do them. DO THE THINGS. (but also, reminding myself to be … Continue reading Project Updates
It's been a while since I've updated this. And August has been full of stuff, but not a whole lot of work on projects. I've honestly needed a break from projects (and instead, added some SCA-related things to my modern Zazzle store), and I'm glad I took it, but I really do need to get … Continue reading Update on Projects
Things still to accomplish. Lined Skjoldehamn hood (Have cut out the wool and am working on getting it lined and assembled.) Cutting out several Byzantine bone box blanks in preparation for turning into Byzantine box icons. (It's been. . . warm. It means that I don't want to be outside cutting bone with a Dremel … Continue reading Project updates.
So, we're five months in. I've been able to stay mostly motivated to get projects done and off the list, though I'm definitely seeing some sticking points. It is also hard as hell to create when you just don't want to create. I did pick up a couple of things at KWHSS - some pigments … Continue reading Update on Finished Projects
I'm preparing to go to KWHSS in the Debatable Lands (finally! Another kingdom down for me!) Valor was a lot of fun (and Camp Interkingdom Incident really was a blast to hang out with). And, my class and workshop went well, so definitely some good times. (Also, I forgot that I'm not bad as a … Continue reading Updates to the project list!
Things still to accomplish. Lined Skjoldehamn hood (will definitely have to redo the centre panel. Alas. Am working on remeasuring, cutting out, and sewing the entire thing up. Almost there.) Cutting out several Byzantine bone box blanks in preparation for turning into Byzantine box icons. Sewing up Byzantine boy garb (PLEASE HELP ME WITH THIS!) … Continue reading Project updates!
So, I sucked it up and decided that I could be poor a couple of weeks. And so I purchased Byzantina Australiensia's new translation of De Ceremoniis so I could start building Byzantine ceremonies and researching things from the primary (or close to it) source document. For those not in the know, De Ceremoniis is the book … Continue reading De Ceremoniis
I'm tinkering with classes for an upcoming event. If you're going to be in Calontir over Memorial Day weekend, I'd love to see you at Valor! I'll be hosting a scriptorium (just a time for scribes to hang out and paint) on Sunday, with a class on regalia, court protocol, and writing award recommendations, and … Continue reading Upcoming Classes
So, my list of unfinished projects is getting shorter! Yay! Still on the list: Lined Skjoldehamn hood (now taken apart and mostly lined. I may have to redo the centre panel so it's wide enough because I forgot to take in account how much I'd lose to seam allowances. Deep sighs.) Cutting out several Byzantine … Continue reading Project roundup!
