CoBloWriMo – Costume Blog Writing Month
Oh… the UFO… Unfinished projects. One of those things that torments me… they sit in my sewing room waiting to be finished. Sometimes when they start bugging me enough they go into a bag and into one of my fabric closets. If I can’t see them they can’t keep bothering me, right?
The CoBloWriMo prompt for today is UFO – and I’ll just show ONE of my UFOs… which I wish I were further along with.
Thinking of competing in a SCA A&S competition? (Like the Apprentice’s Tournament at Samhain or for Emerald Rose at Twelfth Night?) Nervous?
I found the notion of competing pretty nerve-wracking too before I competed the first time, so when I went to Winter War in 2015, I participated in the Unfinished Projects challenge. I didn’t “win”, but found it helped settle my nerves a bit, and I got great feedback that helped inform my research and documentation for when I DID compete….

The non-competing displays at Silver Arrow
With that in mind, I’m hosting an Unfinished Projects display at Harvest Feast in Bitter End in September. Bring what you have, in whatever state you have it in.
Project half-done and your research is not much more than a notebook with some bullet points? Cool!
Project totally done, but your documentation is a few screenshots from your favourite blog? Awesome!
Researched your passions to the nth degree, but haven’t started your project beyond collecting a handful of supplies? That’s cool too!
