September 26, 2009 - Icelandic Althing! YAY!

Well right now I am getting ready for bed in Whitby...just had a fantastic day at the Icelandic Althing in the Barony of Septentria. Had an especially great time seeing old friends and meeting new ones... with especially when you are sort of stranded when the keys for your ride are heading to the hotel without it sorted quickly :) - but that is how I met some new friends!

I enjoyed seeing the DARC encampment with all the cool period arts and crafts. Got some real period made and documented glass beads for my Viking Bling... Saw raw wool being cleaned and preped for spinning, watched the blacksmiths work and watched the firing of pottery in a wood was sooo amazing!!!! Took a class on weaving small trims and how to make Celtic styled illuminations...Makes me want to get my my illumination stuff started, my embroidery, the Yurt (gher) and my fighting armour put together...

Well, I should be posting more, but I am trying to get some base stuff done before I pass the Seneschal torch to my successor next week.

Have a good night,
