I’m super-excited to share some really happy news – the recent posts I shared were all leading up to a really big announcement:
I won Avacal (my SCA Kingdom)’s Arts & Science Championship!
You might remember that I posted about my intent to compete back in January – and I’m super happy that I was also able to complete some of my stretch goals to give extra dimension to my projects. Mind you… it also means I still have a long to-do list of things I still want to try!
Now… why is it taking me this long to share?
I had written all the posts about my A&S projects before the championship, but queued them up to post AFTER the competition… (not because I didn’t want to share my process with people, but I just had so many posts to go out before that!)
Several people took copies of my documentation home with them, and I had lots of really great compliments on my research and documentation – along with requests for copies, so I figured I’d load them up here to share with people.
My projects included (click the link for the PDF of my documentation)
|a pair of nålbound mittens after an 11th century Icelandic find (with additional research on Finnish nålbound mittens)|
|a necklace in the style of the Finnish 11th century necklace on display at Hameenlinna|
|an apron in the style of 11th century Finnish coil or spiral-embellished aprons|
