Who Am I? And Why Am I Here?

Elewys of Finchingefeld, GdS, JdL
Barony of Aquaterra, Kingdom of An Tir

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.

Fall Quilting

Penguins for Nephews!  Just did an all over 3 and E pattern.  I love the colors on this--very Antarctic!

Joy for quilting!  Another original design from Joy using random blocks and her own layout.  Fantastic!  I can see her winning contests and writing books someday...

Cougars for Judy J.  Since she owns a company that sells thread, she asked me to use particular threads on this quilt top.  I gotta say, I hate the metallic stuff.  I had quite a few issues using it--I had to reduce the tension and the quilting speed significantly and I still had some breakage issues.

Hearts for Laura...from Lauri.

Sampler in Christmas hues for Kathy

Arrowheads for baby...but which baby??  There are several babies that have been announced recently...

Waterfalls for Donna

Waterfall detail...river and rocks free-form pattern

I have a few more quilts in line:  the Christmas tree skirt up for raffle from the quilt guild, an angel quilt from Tara, and another friendship quilt from Tara.  Then I have a few in line to do for myself!  More pictures will be up soon!
