Masked Ball

This weekend was Masked Ball.  A small simple affair and I had a wonderful time.  I entered last min my personal scroll from Champs and I won!!! 
And to boot, I had made new garb from some fabric I found at AmVets for $8.  Each were wool blends and easy to work with.  All in all a wonderful day.

Me retaining.  Always the best view.

Amusing tower of dough

I just found this amusing. I needed to make bread for Lunch and Dinner.  So I had 5 of these going for Lunch then made another round of bread for dinner.    The little cakes were dessert.  The bowl... the rejects.

The pan I used was a Nordic Bundt pan - mini wedding cakes.  Great idea..  horrible time getting them out.

But I do love my tower of bread dough.

Pennsic Recap

I taught 2 classes, took 1 class.  Did the A&S display again and realized I wore the same outfit. Made it in the Pennsic Independent.  Managed to stay dry.  Overall, a good year.

Medieval Superheros: my kiddo is "Captain New World" ... get it?  Like Capt. America?  New World?  In Viking Garb?  Totally the best idea

A bee in my bonnet. Literally. It was cold that night and it flew in a panic and landed on my coif.  Then it relaxed..

Learning when to take a break

For the next few months I'm taking a break.. well, focusing my attentions elsewhere.  We have a backlog of scrolls that need to be tackled and since I'm in charge, and winter is coming.. that is my baby.  No new assignments till the new year.  Backlog only.  

And I really want to focus on my sewing.  I have fabric, but no time to do anything with it.  The girl picked out some lovely turquoise and wants tunics.  And I have blue for my Mom who is going to an event this spring.  So I want to make her a tunic..  

Oh the dilemma.. But I will be posting those lovely creations as soon as I get to them.  I have some SECRET creations underway was well. I am fortunate to be involved in an artisan exchange this winter.  Its all planned out, materials are all prepped..  Now I just have to do it.  I did start!! So its looking good.  I can't wait to send them out!!

What I have learned so far..

- I like cooking for 70 people.
- I run a sweet kitchen
- My friends are pretty awesome in the kitchen
- My Mom is awesome

I was given the opportunity to Feastocrat Summer's end.  I opted for a Polish menu.

DINNER MENU (subject to change, but I doubt it)
1st remove:
Bread and butters
Salad with dressing
Baked Chicken over Prunes (Trust me on this - there are onions, cabbage, prunes and spices galore!)
2nd remove
Fresh Kielbasa
Cheese Pierogi
Cucumbers in Sour Cream
Meat Pie (beef/pork/bacon)
Honey Carrots
Heraldry Cakes with Fresh Sylvan Berries

And from what I heard as I wandered around, it was good.  Mom and I made close to 300 Cheese Pierogi.  The sad thing is I didn't any pictures of the dessert.  I made banners to go into each of the cakes with the Canton, Barony, Kingdom and past Baronials herladry in them.  I almost made the Baroness cry.  Mission Accomplished.

More ink.. But this time with color

I got to use teal ink.  Take that!!!

Pen and ink

I think I prefer pen and ink to painting.  I have been in such a slump.  It doesn't help the next 2 months are gonna be hellish.

Pictures to come

I finally found some beads I really liked and decided to make some Thank You beads for the A&S event at Pennsic this year.  I signed up and will have a display.  But this year I really want to take a few minutes and walk around the displays. I missed it the last time because I sat with my display.

So I opted for Red beads, shell beads and pearls.  As soon as I find my phone I'll take a picture.

Jack of all trades

I wonder... Could I be my own A&S entry?  How to be a well rounded woman? I can cook, sew, embroider, take care of a child, bake, throw, serve the thrones, host and scribe... All things needed for the Lady of the House. Hmmm...
