In January I started the year with attending twelfte night in Attemark were Atli was taken to vigil for becoming a knight. Then in february I went with Baron Engli and Baroness Astridh to Nordmarks University in Aros where I helped Renika with holding the A&S competition because she could not attend.
In March it was time to attend Sankt Egon and Gotviks baronial investitur were my lovely friends Einar and Solvind was steping up. A week before this event I started to make Einar his caftan.
In April me, Astridh, Engli and Jovi went to the Crown tourney in Polderslot. It was a long cartrip but also very fun.
In May we had a “fixing weekend” at my house, where we gave Merlin the tent “some love” and made ourself some garb. Then I went to Double wars: My first whole one since I was a student. From now on I will try to take time of from work to do that every year! It was one of the best DW:s ever even do it also was very hard! I held a course in pearl embroidery, helped Lo in the kitchen, attended some classes and lot more. I´ve also got my Panache.
In June I went to Gotvik for a “minievent”, we made some patterns, some sewing and hanged out. And in July I went to the US for a weeding and then in the end of July- Agust Pennsic wars started and I was there for two weeks. Two weeks who changed my mind about what the SCA is. I learned so much and absolutly feel in love with the event and some people
September: I attended another minievent in Gotvik and had a mini course in illumination and guilding. In October I will attend Crown tourney in Aarnimetsää. My first time there. Then I will go to Festivalo de Caderas in Gotvik and then I will probably not attend anymore event this year. But I don´t know that yet!
So it has been a year full of events. This is probably because of my sickleave from work. The only thing that I found really fun to do have been to attend events and do other things related to the SCA.
And the crafting then…
Lately I have been thinking about that my dressmaking stands kind of still and I want be able to finish both the green wool dress (that I havn´t even started on) and the greybrown to Crown which is in a couple of weeks.
We bought a house this year and we have started to tear part of it down this month and at the same time I have on parttime gone back to work so right now there is not much time for crafting. But this year really have been productive, this is what I´ve done:
Herjolfsnes wool coat
Grey/brown cotehardie in the making with tablet weaven edges, lacing and buttons
Green shortsleeved silk dress
Four birgitta caps with herringbone stitching
Three pair of brokor
Four scrolls one of them was for the cover to Silversparren. I also have three more in making right now
Last but not least I´m waiting for my name and arm to get approved. They now have past all the meetings and theres only waiting left!
