Class/Challenge/House Pride: Transfiguration
SPEW: (Does it count if it is something for someone who can't make it for themself, but needs it?)
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: White under tunic
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: All white. I was at a re-enactment event at the weekend (SCA) For those of you who don't know anything about it, it was a weekend away, where we all dress up in medieval garb-anything from 600 to 1600 AD. It is important that everyone dresses up and we try and keep contemporary things out of sight as much as possible, so that we immerse ourselves as much as we can in a different time. Then there is a lot of feasting and revels. It is a lot of fun. I used to do this a lot in the past, but have let it lapse in the last few years. but now that I have an SO who is happy to come along, I am back!

At the event I spoke with a young man who had a very poor attempt at garb, basically some cloth wrapped around like a poncho, I assumed that it was his first event and that he hadn't time to get garb together yet. That was not the case, he has some issues that basically make it extrememly difficult for him to get garb together-plus he has no real knowledge of sewing. So I offered to make him an outfit. I love sewing so it is easy for me and it made him happy and it makes it a better event for everyone if we all look medievalish, so win win win.

The garb will be fairly simple. It consists of baggy pants and two t-tunics, the underneath one is worn next to the body and is generally undyed, the top tunic should be a bit fancier. A bit like this https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/736x/c1/41/d8/c141d8096c5ad1eab898f34cb3650139.jpg Just without all the braid as I am braidless until aliexpress gives up the goods

Anyway I made the first part last night, a simple white undertunic. Modelled by me, It does look huge, but they tended to be baggyish.




Class/Challenge/House Pride: Astronomy
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Table linens,
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description three parts. these are napkins that have been edged with binding (mitered corners are a bugger!) and stamped with a lino cut of a martlet. I used the same block to print around a small piece of cloth that acts as a kind of mini-table cloth for our medieval feast. It all looked great on the table -now I realise I should have taken a photo of the whole setting!

My first homework of this term. I have other things made, but they are swap goodies and will have to wait until they reach their new home before I can post them.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Arithmancy
SPEW: n/a
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name:heraldic banner
Brief Description:

From all of the screen printed fabric I did at the weekend, I made a banner. My SO and I have recently gotten back into medieval reneactment, and we are going to an event in Belfast at the weekend, I will be bringing all my screen printed fabrics with me to hang as decoration, and as my 'device'. In heraldic/reenactment terms your 'device' is your coat of arms, you can use it in full (as in my screen printed stuff, that will eventually be a dress) or in part (a lino cut that I will be making today to decorate table linen) I used some of the screen printed fabric to make a banner that I will be flying at the event. The event is an SCA one and strictly according to their terms you are not supposed to use actual coats of arms, but I was always a rule breaker and I am using my family one, because I like it and it is distinctive, plus I love red. Plus the banner is not really supposed to be repeated arms down it's length, but I think it prettier that way. So it is a series of repeats of the device sewn together, it is very light so you can see it flies really well.

plaidpineapple not sad at all, you definitely captured some of the atmosphere of fog. Keep going.

I received from Blupaisan, she sent me two separate packages, but they both arrived on the same day, which was lucky

First out was this very carefully wrapped altered china bell-such an unusualidea! It has been decoupaged with a raven theme and the clapper of the bell replaced by a tiny raven. Blu was worried that it might not make it intact, but it was perfectly wrapped!! I love ravens as a theme, so this works great for me.



 I hope you can see the wee raven inside on this picture.


The second out was a slimmer package and when I unwrapped it I found this great stitched card, It is great, and I love the back, which has a map reference of where it came from.

These will be the foundation of my very own curiosity cabinet now...which is a great excuse to buy another piece of furniture!!



Thanks so much partner! this was a fun swap.

ooh, this would be interesting, I have just restarted some medieval renactment, and Mr EdelC is choosing a viking persona, would viking gear work for this swap I wonder? Or is that too big an ask?

Roler, bec99 I hear you on the postage, I always stick to light stuff, which basically means sewn stuff, even snacks that I tend to send are light ones. But I have decided that postage for swapping is cheaper than drugs and it makes me happier. I tend to not make too much stuff unless i Have a target or a deadline, swapping means i have to craft and crafting is very good for you.
