So, I did a thing…

I have been away from WordPress for a while, I just couldn’t bring myself to write, but I think the funk has left. I’ve been doing research when I could, and life has been kinda crazy.

This Weekend, I participated in my first SCA Arts & Sciences event, at the Barony of Bonwicke 25th Anniversary. The competition was stiff. My friend won the judged portion of the event, and I won the Populace vote. I also won a prize for my A&S Largesse entry, with my handmade soaps and beard oils. I had to leave early, because I had my grandson with me, and he was not enjoying the event, and was making everyone else a little miserable, too! I was sad to miss court!

However, my blog has frequently been about my research and plans in the SCA. I also hope, at one point, to enter the Realm of Venus Costume Contest. Right now, there are so many demands on my time, I doubt that will happen in the next year, but it is a dream. For more information about that contest, go here: http://realmofvenus.renaissanceitaly.net/yourgarb/showcase.htm

Anyhoo, here’s the rub on my research and creation…bear with me, it is 10 pages! (but there are lots of pictures!)
