Glaedenfeld‘s Iris Faire has always been a great SCA event. And also this year my husband and I enjoyed ourselves tremendously. He participated in a lot of good heavy fighting on this day and he even won one of the tournaments. 🙂 Continue reading →
As awesome as Gulf Wars was, it is indeed great to be back home. Several days of camping is always a good reminder how great the luxury of a modern bathroom is. A bathroom which one only has to share with ones sweetheart…
And after the cold snap during most of Gulf Wars, I now tremendously enjoy our modern heating system at home. Damn, that where some really cold nights but we made the best out of it. Garb layering was tested until it was deemed sufficient and it seemed like everyone pulled out their best furs in order to keep warm. And then there were all this wonderful camp fires around which we gathered. Many tales were told around the fire pits and also many songs were sung. I am quite sure that I am not the only one who made a lot of new amazing friends while warming up at a fire pit. Continue reading →
Wooohooo! The scroll for the “Rose Tournament” is finished! 😀
After all the recent postings about my progress concerning this project, I proudly present to you a picture of my finished scroll for the winner of the “Rose Tournament”. A tourney which will take place at the upcoming Gulf Wars event! 😀
Looking back it seems like I just started working on this scroll. However, I know just too well that I worked for about 2 weeks on it. It is really amazing how fast time can go by when you are concentrating on a project. Like the hours just flew by as i was adding paint and ink to the pergamenata. But all that really counts at the end is that the project is finished and that I am proud of the outcome! 😀
…and finally, after finishing the two scrolls which were on my to-do list, as well as the artwork for the vigil book for my husbands knighting, I am able to catch some breath again. And it’s definitely time to show you more of the progress that I made concerning my most recent projects. Well, at least the progress of the projects which don’t need to remain secret until they’ve reached their recipient at war… 😉
…and now, that I got the “ok” to share my current project with you, I can spill the news and reveal what I was working on during the last days:
The scroll for the “Rose Tournament” at Gulf Wars! 😀
Though being asked to provide the scroll for the winner of the “Rose Tournament” at Gulf Wars – a very prestigious and great tournament – was quite a surprise for me, I felt very honored and immediately agreed to take on this task. And knowing that some of my dear friends as well as my husband will take part in this tournament – either as fighter or inspiring “rose” (former queens within the SCA who joined the Order of the Rose after their reign was over) – makes this special scroll assignment a very sweet task for me. But don’t worry – I am a quite “professional” scribe of the Kingdom of Meridies who is not biased and I promise to use my best hand to insert the name of the winner, whoever it might be… 😉
Wow! Wow! Wow! Wow! Wow!
My husband was asked to join the order of the chivalry during court at War college in Alabama! 😀
It already happened more than a week ago but – gosch – this awesome news still seems so amazing and unreal to me. Like it is just too good to be true. And being the natural skeptic that I am, I might actually not believe it until it really happens… We will see… And… Omg! Omg! Omg!
Well, sure, I hoped that this day would come eventually but when it finally happened, it completely blindsided me. I can not even imagine how surprised and excited my sweetheart was… And the way I got to know about it was quite funny and has a good potential to become one of the funny stories told around fire pits during SCA events….
