Who Am I? And Why Am I Here?

Elewys of Finchingefeld, GdS, JdL

This is a place to which I may post my research, my experiments, my successes...and yes, my failures...for medieval re-creation and research on my never-ending quest to learn and revel in knowledge and experiences.

I am a lady of many times and many places. Currently using a 15th century English name, dressing in a 10th century Danish dress, and camping in a Mongolian round house. "Lost" doesn't even begin to describe my persona.

Finish lines

I have good news!  I finished the Thistle Socks!  That makes 32 finished pieces, and completes the Heraldic Rainbow!  Oh, wait...I still need white and black, but I've got Argent, Or, Vert, Azure, and Purpure.  I may have more projects that I'm missing in the list...I'm still finding projects that I was working on or finished, but forgot.

Also, I'm coming to a finish on the yurt.  I guess that could be considered and A&S project, so we'll call it 33.  The khana is done, the tono and uni are finished, and we were able to erect the bulk of the structure the other day.  The canvas is still being worked on, but there's an end in sight for that as well.  It needs to have one more seam finished on the roof and the walls need the rivets, and I have to make a smoke hole flap and door flap.  THEN it'll be done!

I have a few papers/documentation that I'm working on that *could* be considered an A&S entry, and thus, an A&S project, so I may add those to the list as well, bringing it to 37 or so.  I'll have to figure that out.

I'm also working on another pair of Turkish socks for myself out of alpaca.  I started them before but they turned out to be much too small to fit my wide feet.  I'm part duck, you see...or SEAL...not sure.  Anyway, some water-drelling creature that requires wider footwear.  I tore it all back to the toenails and am starting again.
