The Summer Side of Life

Well it's been a while, hasn't it? Life has been simultaneously busy and un-busy for me. Summertime is always busy with everything - travel, hiking, canoeing, drinking on patios, sitting on balconies, and enjoying what has turned out to be my ideal kind of summer (warm days, cool nights, low humidity, just enough rain).

There just also hasn't been a ton going on, reenacting-wise. I'm prepping for some fun stuff in the next couple months, including an out-of-state immersion overnight, so that has taken up some attention. I've also been blogging more of my food adventures over at the Historical Food Fortnightly, so be sure to follow that blog to keep abreast of what I've been up to in the kitchen! Teaser: sometimes I win, sometimes I lose.

I've also been working on some other writing projects and presentation proposals for some really awesome things, so my writing energy/time has been diverted elsewhere. All the same, I've been working on some posts, so stay tuned for more of that!

And - new background, which I love! Thanks to Shabby Blogs, as usual.

In the meantime, fall is when I usually take on some commissions. I have some spare sewing time between October and April and am willing to take on a few projects for customers. I don't do much by way of menswear, but all my skills (embroidery, sewing, millinery, etc) are for hire. If you're interested in hiring me to make something, send me a message!
