Stop the maddness [Oct. 13th, 2009|12:40 pm]
vitrarius
Dear SCA friends,

As of this moment, I refuse to discuss any topics that involve banishments, war unit foo foo, rumor mongering, or bad mouthing of friends or enemies. If you start to talk to me about the subjects listed above, I will simply walk away. If you are having a problem in one or all of these areas that is too bad, but they are Your problems, not mine, and I did not travel to an event and pay my gate fee to hear you whine, cry, or bitch about them If you have a problem with someone then go have a private face to face chat with them and work it out, or agree to disagree, but don't try to drag me into it, because I really don’t care. If we keep rewarding the people who are involved in spinning up the drama by lending them an ear, then we are only helping to make matter worse.

I would be happy to hear what you are up to in regards to cooking, fighting, beekeeping, brewing, glass working, costuming, shoe making, horse ridding, dancing, board gaming, or barn raising.

Thanks
Duncan

Thanks, just doing my part to help make the SCA less like High School. ;-)

So what projects are you working on?

*follows directions, though uninvolved with foo*

I'm knitting stockings! They're neat, and I should have them done within the next couple of days! I hear that you're doing glass buttons to be used for knit wear. Where can I get me some of those?

Glass buttons, ask and you shall receive.
I will, (with the help of my Lady), post some pics of some of what I have made in the next couple of weeks, pick one you like, and I will send it up.

Sewing good, glass better. You need to come over and play with the new torch.

So there I was, drinking a brew while playing a board game about shoeing a riding horse in its newly raised barn, when a well-dressed bee danced in munching on a pasty, holding a glass sword, looking for a fight...

PS - thanks for the post

I'm making incremental progress (read: in the few minutes I can steal during naptime) on the tunic of infinite embroidery.

I'm reading books (heh. incrementally) about Renaissance painting technique. I'm really excited by miniatures right now.

I have written and deleted so many variations of this post. (Well the tone and meaning)

You just cut through the mustard on this.

A bunch, ok three, of us brought our glass bead stuff to Great Western War but were all too busy walking around with Helium-Hand Syndrome to actually do anything with it. :D
