A Project

Before I go any further, I’d like to throw out a *wave* and a thank you to Racaire.  I really appreciate you stopping by my little corner of the blogosphere.  I spent three of the most influential years of my SCA life in Drachenwald.  It was an incredible experience and we hope one day to return!

I thought today I’d share a simple project with you.  I’d planned to show you my first attempt at a Viking apron but I became a bit obsessed with cleaning up my sewing room.  I’d rather have nice pictures of the garment in a passably clean room than nice pictures of it in a sewing that looks like a mad crafter barfed in it.  🙂

This Spring I took a class on appliqué taught at a completely lovely event.  The instructor, Mistress Jadi, provided all the supplies and, after we covered the basic stitches used, we went out into the world, projects in hand.  What you see here are the results of that class.  It’s stitched on wool and I turned the piece into a pouch.  (One of the many little things I desperately needed!)  My stitching is terribly uneven but, on the whole, I’m fairly pleased with the result.  I really enjoyed the project and look forward to doing more appliqué!

  1. It is the same Jadi!!! She's the Baroness of Southdowns, (Atlanta) right now. Such a lovely person and a patient instructor. 🙂

    Thank you for the compliment on my piece! I had such a good time working on it. 🙂
