Busy as a bee...

sorry about my last post, the post revel for all of pennsic left me very tired and stressed. I had a lot of fun, and I learned a lot. I became a minion of Mistress Maria, a Pelican of Endless Hills. This basically means that I will work in her shop for her during Pennsic, and during the year she will teach me everything she knows, so I can run the shop for her. I am very excited and I think I have a lot to learn. As a present for working in her shop this past Pennsic, she gave me a new pair of gloves and a fencing mask to start me out in my quest for equipment. She is also going to help me make an Elizabethan dress, so hopefully in the next year I can post pictures of that. I am still working on Jehan's doublet and I have to start my embroidery piece this week, as well as cleaning my house. *sigh* the work never seems to end.

On a happier note, the reason I am able to write is I am at my parents house this weekend. Jehan and I met with the pastor for our wedding in May, which went well, so now we can continue to plan our wedding. Can't wait to continue with what are plans have been!

hopefully I can update sooner then later, but it more then likely be later!

Busy as a bee!

post Pennsic update

Well, I have been quite the boring person in the past few weeks. I've mainly been working on garb for Pennsic, but since I was hand sewing, none of it was finished *sigh* at least I have some things to work on for later! Pennsic had been interesting. It started out with our landagent flipping his truck, and at the end of the 2 weeks my car battery died. I will say it was as good as could be with no real running water, electricity and no way out!

Hopefully I can update you more sometime later. I bought 2 books and am now saving money for a light box and a printer so I can do more research and illuminations...

heres to the future!
