*** Mea Culpa – I realized that I never gave photo credit’s, where they were due! I have now corrected this error! I mentioned, a few posts back, that I’ve accepted an apprenticeship at Birka, but I really didn’t say much else. Well, it was after the Fashion Show at Birka 28 that my dear… Continue reading So much to do and little time to do it in!
Last fall, it was made known that there would be quite a few visiting Royals to our *little* SCA event: A Market Day at Birka. Stonemarche’s artisans have always been very generous in creating & donating items for gift bags for visiting Royals…but usually it’s only a few.

I found out that her heraldry… Continue reading #supersecretstitchingproject

Not just one – but TWO projects!! Meg’s Celtic Seahorse Amd Tom’s goldwork monogram for his niece’s wedding present!!… Continue reading Works In Progress no more!!
It’s been a while.. I have been a little busy with life. Some of you know, I had a 3rd (and hopefully last) surgery on my elbow in December. Things have been steadily improving and, last week, my doctor gave me the ok to get back to work. The problem, I now have limitations and… Continue reading New projects..
