Last week, I found some pre-cut wool and linen in my workbasket, packed with a bobbin of embroidery floss. I’m pretty sure it’s from a kit someone gave me – alas, I do not remember who. So I whipped up a new pouch for Mathghamhain Ua Ruadháin, to relieve some of the strain on the nålbound pouch I made him a while back. This one is phone sized, with space for business cards, flyers, and pens.
Mid-November, 2020, I was honored to be recruited by my Vicereine (ceremonial head of the NYC-area SCA group) to help make regalia for the newest inductee into our Order of the Sea Urchin of Østgarðr. The Sea Urchin is for youth who excel in service, arts or martial accomplishment — “and” in the case of this extremely deserving young person.
