Knowledge in Practice
Old Gable No Lining I had an opportunity to rework an older gabled hood from my collection. Using knowledge I learned in a class my Lady Margaret Wolseley from Kingdom of Atlantia.  This will not make it as near accurate as her depiction but be more wearabl...

Baa Baa Black Sheep
Well I found better pricing than finding people to fund a sheep and name it. Purchased 6 plush lambs. Two black, two beige, and two white in color. This is my mini flock and they are named. The dark ones are Ginger and Molasses, the beige are Sage and Thyme...

I miss the many wonderful things about Pennsic, here's is just a few. Waking up at dawn, lounging in tent till the heat made it impossible to stay. Playing games with the 6 kids in my camp. Going to fascinating classes, hanging out with friends till wee hours of the morning, and all the wonderful walking. Makes one feel alive !

Pennsic in a Nut Shell
My Pennsic was a very busy and productive 10 day vacation. Posted my Pennsic 44 gallery previously so more detail to see in the photos. Nothing like spending time with family and friends that I do not get to spend enough time with on a regular basis. It was...

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.
