A new name, same old thing....

In order to help others find my blog easier, I have changed my name to "A wrinkle in time". It was one of my favorite books when I was in school, and I think it fits this blog very well. I do have a few updates since the last time. I had ordered my books, and by Monday they were here! Now I just need to get a light box and a photocopier, and I'm good to go. I have started on the embroidery pattern, I just need to finish copying it. I started on my dress too, I"ll have to put up pictures about the process as soon as I can get them. This weeks goal is to get the apartment cleaned up, not only so I have more room to work (and less work to do), but my parents are also coming this next weekend, and my mother hasn't seen it yet, since we only moved in march! Can't have a dirty house when your mother comes over...

~until next time, and I have more to share :)

Concentration: Impossible

With my work schedule on the fritz (they have changed it 3 times in 2 weeks), I haven't had the energy to really do anything. I have been doing many events the past few weeks, which all included me attempting to fence, and retaining for their Majesties. I have a lot of fun doing both, so when my joints act up I know I can always do something. In the A&S field, I've been stuck in a rut. I"m having issues concentrating on one aspect of creating things, so I'm taking a small break. I do have good news: I just ordered my first 2 period books: "Exploring Elizabethan Embroidery.

I also ordered  my first book on Illumination called "Catherine of Cleves: Book of Hours". It is a period Germanic prayer book that was wonderful Gothic Illuminations in it. I am quite excited for it to come, so I can start with some more period works. It is a goal of mine to start being more accurate very slowly. It has taken me a few years, but with college taking over 90% of my time, I'm a bit behind.  I wish I had more to say for now...until then, I shall continue to do what I do
