Space_wolf asked: How do you keep your veil (particularly the outfit you wore when stepping down as Gold Falcon Principle Herald – https://kaloethina.wordpress.com/2016/03/29/gobsmacked/) in place, or do you just accept that over time it might shift / slip? Also, before I start answering this question - go to her blog (which I've linked above)! She's … Continue reading AMA Question #1
Queen’s Prize AS XLIX
Over the weekend was Queen's Prize Tournament, which is a time for Calontir artists that do not already have a Grant of Arms or above (so, Laurels, Silver Hammers, and Calon Lilies cannot participate as an entrant) to make something and get feedback from judges. I've been making glass-headed pins since I got my Hot … Continue reading Queen’s Prize AS XLIX
Pennsic Largesse Roundup!
For the second Pennsic in a row, I've been asked to contribute something to the Pennsic gift basket. This year's recipient was Caid.

But it did have to be neat. So, given that my mundane job has taken up much of my spare time (I'm actually writing this … Continue reading Gulf Wars Largesse

A Panoply of Scrolls (and other things)
I've been juggling a couple of things lately, including three scroll commissions from the outgoing queen of Calontir, and learning how to use my new lampwork torch. I also entered a blank border contest. So, after my trip to the Middle East, I was inspired by the many, many, many Qu'ran pages I saw at … Continue reading A Panoply of Scrolls (and other things)
