Elspeth's 50 by 50

Making The Knowne World More Beautiful, One A & S Project At A Time

Welcome to My 50 by AS 50 Blog!
Well met, friends! In an effort to stop collecting UFOs (UnFinished Objects), I have decided to jump on the 50 by AS 50 bandwagon. I have a nasty habit of getting excited about a project, getting the materials together, starting it, then running out of steam. I'm tired of having all of these partially finished things cluttering up my house, so I am hoping that this will be the motivation I need to get stuff done. So, without further ado, here is my list:

Key: Not started - pale orange; In progress - orange; Finished - red

1. Finish the velvet Tudor swete bag and enter it into competition.
2. Stitch and finish a blackwork belt favour for myself with something representing my principality and shire offices, as well as my interests and emblem.
3. Submit my name, device and badge to the College of Heralds

4. Make a book to use as a "prayer book" for my Tudor persona
5. Embroider a velvet book cover for my prayer book
6. Take the velvet swete bag apart, finish embroidering all sides and re-finish

7. Design and make the champions' scrolls for Lionsdale's rapier and bardic champions (awarded at Winter Tourney, 2010)
8. Embroider a blackwork needlecase for my persona (slight change of plans - the one I started will now be for mirth_matter , as she has given me madder-dyed silk to make my own!)
9. Make a new smock for Wulfstan
10. Embroider the neckline and cuffs of Wulfstan's new smock

Wow, she's really crazy...Collapse )ETA: I gave the trim to Viscountess Kenna, as she had a greater need.  I'll do something else to embellish it.Wow, she's really crazy...Collapse )

So, there you have it.  My five year plan for utter insanity.  Thanks for coming along for the ride!
