Who am I?

I'm so much more than a seamstress, and while I intended this blog to be about sewing... I wonder if I shouldn't put myself out there... who I am etc..

Frankly, I find it strange that people use blog's as 'tell all's'. It's like little snippets of reality shows 24/7.

What do people know about me? What do they NEED to know? ACK. There are many parts of me that are not shared. I wonder if that is a good or bad thing?

I can see the 'blog as therapy' concept working for people. Splash your feelings out there, but in a sea of emotions, who's reading? or who's reading me?

Now for the strange part.. who's reading that I don't know is reading?

Maybe I'm paranoid. Maybe no one is reading at all.

You would think, with my fiction writing, I wouldn't care who's reading, but my fiction is anonymous (well, maybe, anyone with half a brain could look up at least one of my domains, but there's the trick, I rarely give the email with that domain out - *snork* except it's on the Kingdom webpage! Is that subconscience? LOL!)

I think I worry what people will think of me, if they know my chosen hobbies. What perceptions do they form because of the SCA, sewing, fencing, writing?

Maybe it would make people like me more and I'm holding back 'the good stuff'?

Where am I?

I've been in a whirlwind of sewing, that's where. HRH (Now HRM) Lutr recieved his tunic by Gulf Wars and placed it into Midrealm Regalia at Coronation.

I took this to mean he didn't care for it, which is fine. Fighting garb is very personal, and prehaps it didn't fit or was too long or any number of things. I hope, after all the work and the horrible bout of tendonitis I suffered after it, that there will be another early period Prince that finds it suitable. If not, I have learned one thing.

I don't enjoy applique.

That said, I am now working on Heraldic Cloaks for Midrealm Regalia. First for Prince and Princess and then for King and Queen. These are light weight cloaks, for Pennsic, and are heavy duty and sturdy. I am enjoying putting them together and watching as they unfold. I'm working on the back of the Princesses' cloak today.

We also have friends that are playing in Crown at the end of the month, so I am hoping to get them finished by then.

Tabard for Regalia/Tunic for a Prince

In December I completed 1 tabard for Midrealm Royal Regalia, I still have one to go. I am now working on a custom tunic for HRH Lutr. This has a more celtic dragon on it and is better suited to his armor. I hope to have it completed by Gulf Wars. I will also be working on cloaks for THR.
