I pointed out to my husband today that picking up another SCA hobby is taking away from my embroidery time. He chuckled at me and reminded me that *I* was the one who jumped on this new, shiny and active hobby and have been spending the past week or more obsessing over it. I had a choice this afternoon. I could add more sparkly gold thread to the next piece of my Veste or keep working on cleaning Don Vilhelm's sword so I can play with it.
Needless to say, the sword is gleaming clean and the embroidery never left the bag.
... I am a silly girl, infatuated with gleaming steel and long, leggy lunges. I'm sure I can manage to squeeze in embroidery time between workouts and lessons and practice and maintenance of the gear I've been loaned. Somehow I will find more hours in the day... Especially since the kids go back to school tomorrow.
