Next time I say I want to do the Pent, someone tell me NO

Its 3 days before Ice Dragon.  All my entries are "done" with the exception of the Documentation.  4 items, one doubles.

What was I thinking.

I will post them AFTER Saturday.

I doubt I will win any categories or any of the prizes but it was fun.

Some lessons learned that I can share now.

1) Its possible to do everything in like a month.
2) Never trust the recipe.
3) Saffron dyes everything yellow.

Planning and Prep

I got it in my head that I could enter the Ice Dragon Pent.  Now that my Retainer days are done (well mostly), I can focus on other things.  Like art and stuff.

I am reading a book - "The Good Wife's Guide" ..  basically a how to guide for a very young bride.   Here is my basic plan.. the items for the Pent will be based on the book..
1) Things she would have used
2) things she could have made herself based on direction from the book

It's late 14th century so I have options.  Fabric is ordered.  Image is a maybe.. and recipes are iffy.  I have a theme and I may just run with it.

Now for Documentation..  ah crap.
