Weaving, sewing, and mischief
Besides a bunch of weaving that is now down to its last panel of fabric for the weft. Working on many a project all at once. As living alone has given me loads of free-time, its high time I get some projects done.  Its coming along quite nicely but not sure...

Story
Tagline
Multi-talented Artist
Introduction
I enjoy SCA(Society of Creative Anachronism)a group that recreates pre-16th century Europe, customs, crafts and chivalry of an older time. In this activity I sew Tudor costumes, spin wool and silk, stitch crewel embroidery, making jewelry, make Tudor hoods, participate in doll/marionette making, old world wood working, painting, drawing, sculpting and all over crafting and arts. I enjoy most types of folklore, myth and legend. Especially any tales from Europe. I love to play collectible card games, paper and pencil role-play games like D&D and White-wolf games. I do play some computer games from time to time. I live happily with my cats Jasper,Tabitha, and Star.
