ACC Update

I'm about half way done with the embroidery on the Veste.  I doubt I will have time or desire to embroider the front guards.  I know, bad Laurel, shame on me.
Life is still chaos.  I may be moving to day shift as a result of the whirlwind of life crap my family has gone through.  Maybe, if the boss' boss' boss approves my request.  Have I mentioned my frustration at government beaurocracy and it's love-affair with paperwork?
Fencing is still fun.  I got to fight, actually fight instead of practicing parties and lunges and footwork.  I got my butt kicked, but giggled the whole time.  And I killed my Don!  Once, but I it!!  And from the surprise on his face, he didn't let me do it.

ACC Progress

Embroidery takes a fearsome long time.  I've finished about 1/3 of the embroidery on the back of the veste.  That means I'm not quite done with half the embroidery just on this piece.  I am seriously doubting that I will get all the bits and pieces done before NYE.
I'm full of excuses why I haven't finished more yet, but excuses are like @$$holes, everyone has one and they all stink.

About Me

My photo
I began playing SCA in 1999. I had this idea to become a Late Period Costuming Laurel from Day One. On the way, I developed a deeper love for all things Italian, specifically the clothing. If you have questions, ask me. If you have comments, share them. If you have suggestions, tell me.
