You, my friend, are either ambitious or insane. Guess which one I'm leaning towards?

I should add that I have no doubt that you'll get these things accomplished. But I want pictures!

Me, I need to attack the (now largish) pile of fabric and come up with some garb before Estrella. Oh, and find some trim that matches it because I'm low on bling. And finish my cloak. And make those cooler covers I've been *thinking* about for years. And repair my canvas camp chairs.
And...crap, see what you started?

And I just this very evening told the soon-to-be new Baron and Baroness to consider me a "volunteer at large" for the next two years. Looks like I'm back in the swing. :)

If the bathing tunics take me more than 40 minutes, I've done something very, very wrong.

Take two bath sheets. Tack together at the top edges, sew up the sides, leaving armholes -- basically, make a peplos out of them. You now have a handy dandy tunic to wear to and from the showers.

And the morning garb will just be a big linen tunic and pants to wear in the morning, before I get dressed for the day. Nothing fancy. I'd even make it out of cotton, but I hate sewing cotton.

And a lot of it is actually stuff I want Wolfie to do, but it's on my list, y'know, because.

Your list looks a lot like mine.

Only add in there

"construct period pavilion"

Yes I are nuts.

Heh. Checked that one off the list five years ago.

You do have a few more years in the SCA than I do. :P

I'm hoping we'll have a period tent by Gulf Wars this coming year.

Really? how long have you been in?

My anniversary event is coming up in a couple of weeks and I started playing in the summer before that in 2002.

So, 4 years now.

Oh, wow, I thought you'd been playing for longer than that. My anniversary event is coming up at the end of October -- Fall Coronation. It'll be eight years. ;-)

When the time comes to work on Livery I will be very happy to help.

Thanks, sweetie!
