When Brigida Gold Falcon reached out to me for a scroll commission, and I got the details, I squee'd. A lot. You see, when I got started in the Society, I needed to work on clothing, and a friend of mine had a quiet place behind a table. The herald's table. So, I sat … Continue reading Nikolai’s Herald Extraordinary Scroll
KWHSS and yet another scroll diary.
KWHSS was a blast. I got to hang out with my brothers, the Four Horsemen of the College of Arms, picked up some scribal goodies (and yet, somehow managed to stay under budget), and learned a lot. Plus, oh, the networking. Also, next year is in Calontir. Come see me. Come take some classes. … Continue reading KWHSS and yet another scroll diary.
Update on Projects
I seem to be doing updates to my unfinished list, but on the other hand, it feels good to get things knocked off of a list. What is done: Nobelese Largesse Secret Project (blogged about here) Mar’s Quilt block (no photos, but it’s also done and I’m mostly happy with it) Write Pelican scroll text for Jaida … Continue reading Update on Projects
Snorri’s Hammer Scroll, or how to pick your battles
This is actually a project from last year (December!) that I've finally got some time to blog about now. I got a scroll assignment from the Royal Scribe for Damien and Issabell and I was immediately inspired to Do Something Cool. Plan 1: do a runestone. I should preface this with I was on furlough … Continue reading Snorri’s Hammer Scroll, or how to pick your battles
2017 SCA Resolutions, revisited. . .
Looking back at my SCA resolutions from last year, and I got none of them done. Sigh. Not. A. One. Now, to be fair, my modern work life was in a crap-ton of flux, but I'm hoping for much smoother sailing this year. Goals #1 (actually finish a project before taking on another one) and #5 … Continue reading 2017 SCA Resolutions, revisited. . .
Brigida’s Pelican Text
My friend Brigida had the boon begged to be admitted to the Order of the Pelican back in August. She asked me to write her scroll text, of which I was pleased to do so. Brigida's persona is from 1200s Munich (hence the von München in her name!) Tumbling down the rabbit hole that are Holy … Continue reading Brigida’s Pelican Text
Byzantine Bone Box Icon and Queen’s Prize
I've been quiet lately. Sorry about that (lots of projects on my plate, lots of items still needing to be done). At any rate, I've been quiet as I've been working on my Queen's Prize project. I've been intrigued by this little bone icon found in Israel since its discovery in 2011, and even more … Continue reading Byzantine Bone Box Icon and Queen’s Prize
Barony of Forgotten Sea Arts and Sciences Championship
Yesterday was the baronial arts and sciences championship, which I entered on a lark. The only caveat to the competition is that I could not have entered a competition with it before. You may remember the carved Pelican medallion I made a few entries ago. After buying a jeweler's saw and blades, I cut the … Continue reading Barony of Forgotten Sea Arts and Sciences Championship
Rufus Tenstone’s Silver Hammer
I was asked to write a scroll text for my friend Rufus, who received his Silver Hammer (Grant-level, Sciences, Calontir) for his pottery at Coronation. Rufus' persona is a Saxon/ Viking orphan, found by the red painted old Roman 10 mile marker outside London. This was delayed due to Coronation being postponed thanks to a predicted monster … Continue reading Rufus Tenstone’s Silver Hammer
Queen’s Prize 2016
Queen's Prize this year is done! It was a wonderful experience, and being able to sound out new ideas, areas to explore, and things to do was great. For those not in Calontir (or with kingdoms that don't have a similar competition), Queen's Prize Tournament is a time for Calontir artists that do not already … Continue reading Queen’s Prize 2016
