Embracing Uncertainty

I’m baaaaa-ack! Hello, world, once again! I’ve been trying to write this post for 1.5 years. The vision I’ve had to stand proudly before you, laying out a grand plan of exactly what I’m going to post about, on a wonderfully steady posting schedule, with a long list of tantalizing photos and snippets of things

Cat walk! Haircut! Paul Bunyan! Oh my!

This post is a bunch of random photos of recent happenings in my life.  First is a series of photos from the first time my cats followed me on a walk! The first walk, I got two streets over before they got skittish and wanted to go back home.  The second time, I got a

The Stars of Border War

Moira brought three kittens to Border War, a local SCA event.  They were definitely the stars of the day!  This post is entirely gratuitous kitten photos with me and my friends. In case you’re wondering, this patched hood is the same linen hood that was in this post of me blacksmithing.  It has worn down

Custom Card Game Organizer

It’s been over two years since I started designing my storage case for my Dominion cards.  I finished making it in May of 2015, and it’s had a year of solid use before these pictures were taken.  Let me tell you: it works, and it’s awesome.  I’ve ironed out the couple bugs it had (one

Kittehs!

Just some pictures of my favorite sewing helpers. Someone decided that the camera was nonsense and just wanted pets. Hey, Mama, you’re not using this, are you? What?  It’s comfy. Plus, you can’t resist petting me before moving me. Hihi!  Why aren’t you petting me yet?  I’m totes helping. They’re so pretty, my babies.  They

Rapier Marshal Hood

Last November, I was Marshal in Charge at a rapier event, and I wanted a fancy garment to show that I was acting as a marshal.  For years, I’d always heard the phrase “marshal tabard,” but I never wanted to wear a tabard.  Then a member of my barony made a gorgeous marshalling German capelet,
