C3R

Saturday morning we piled six of us into Irene’s truck to go to the College of Three Ravens in Thescorre. I was on the reserve list to teach my hosen class, fully expecting to be asked to step in for a cancelled class. As it turned out, I wasn’t. I went to two classes – one on making list-legal rapier armor (I was curious about how another person would approach it) and one on tabletwoven edgings – correcting mis-representations in some of the line drawings in Textiles and Clothing.  It was really interesting, and now I really REALLY want a copy of Woven Into the Earth.

I displayed a handful of things in the A&S display – the mauve gown as it currently exists, the award medallions, and Liadain’s gowns.  Well, HRH displayed the gowns – I just stuck the docs on a table with a note to go look at the Princess if people wanted to see the actual garments.  They looked STUNNING, and were selected as Baron & Baroness’ choice.

I also caught up with someone I met at Pennsic to geek about 13th century iconographic sources – she’s forwarded me a citation for a book with a number of pictures of 13th c. tomb effigies, which is awesome.

Shoshanna had a really good day, too.
