  •  I'm very pleased with it LOL (8+ / 0-)

    I've done SCA on and off since I was 16 years old.  A good group is awesome, a not good group is definitely not awesome - and I have no idea how this one will be.  But what the hell, new clothes.

    And we sail and we sail and we never see land, just the rum in the bottle and a pipe in my hand...

      big robes, cause I have the gall to wear a hennin.

      Also I cook. And I spin cause I have to do something with my hands at demos, and do blackwork cause it goes on my clothes some, and I make wine cause what the hell.

      When you come to find how essential the comfort of a well-kept home is to the bodily strength and good conditions, to a sound mind and spirit, and useful days, you will reverence the good housekeeper as I do above artist or poet, beauty or genius.

      •  I'm just not doing that big German Jew hat (4+ / 0-)

        at least - not in this heat.  About all the garb I have left at home is a couple pairs of old tatty Mongol pants and a T tunic or two, and a wonderful overcoat made of fabric from Jordan.  But they are all in the boat in a box getting musty, along with my pouch and apprentice belt.
