Winter productivitiy!  
Oh, and before I forget - Come join me in the 2009 Thing-a-Day challenge! The concept is simple - make something every day during February and post a short blog about it. It's a fun way to see what other people are up to and to complete some of the things that have been languishing on the to-do list. :)

Well, I must've gotten a jump on this. ;) I managed to finish repairs on my lord's silk tunic (his favorite and ten years old) and repaired one of his t-shirts. He's hard on the underarm seams - which isn't helped by the fact that they simply serge the edges together...

Now I'm working on my "Pictish" gown - yeah, the one from the "Celtic Embroidery" book. I know, I know, they're research into the garments is a bit sketchy, but I'll never know how it works until I try at least one. Then I'll be making one from your directions, then one from Gale Owen-Crocker's book (it gets here on the 2nd!)... I'm also going to be incorporating pieces from the Anglo-Saxons and Norse (pre-Viking!)... as I have found that there was indeed evidence of trade happening with Orkney (and Shetland - Scalloway) between these people. Yay me! OCD comes through yet again!!!! ;)

Oh, this is turning out to be longer than your original post. *facepalm*

OK, you got me. Hopefully I remember to log in and post every day. Too many things on the "to do" list, so hopefully this will help......but I still have exchequer reports to get in the master report as well, so I guess I'll be multi-tasking. :)

I'm also on board on this. Lucia posted in her Facebook, and it sounded like fun. She's not just doing SCAian projects. So This is also what I'm going to be doing. I have the feeling it will also include finally getting my sewing room & kitchen organized.
