Details, details, details... BSK's Spring A&S competition is one week from today and I just completed a list of all the little finishing things I need to do...HA! I have been organizing my entries and figuring out how to display them... I have also been planning recipes for my potluck dishes and just scored a pork roast for $1.49 a lb. Now I have to find out if it is ok to use cooking wine or if I need to get 'real' wine for the broth? (Have I mentioned that I am SO not a cook?) *Update: I scorched the millet pottage but I rocked the pork roast!
I am still debating about what I will wear. I am entering the Challenge outfit but the Purple 'Year of Living Norse' was to be a display only. Then I thought I could wear it as a movable display....ooooorrrrrr I could wear something 'old' <yawn> during the day and then put on one of the outfits for dinner and court...hmmmmmm??? *Update: I wore the purple and green all day.
Bad backdrop for the green apron...need to get a better view???

BSK Spring Arts and Sciences Competition 2012
Jan 2012 When I decided to do the garb competition , I had already started my 'Year of Living Norse' project for BSK's Spring A&S competition. However, there were a couple of things with the original project (too early start time, not completely authenticated period fabric choices, etc.) that made me decide to start from scratch for the ACC.
So now, I am returning to the original plans and getting back to business. By March I should have two complete sets of garb to wear/display/compete with...yay!
Here it is...
I have been a member of SCA since 2005 and have been trying to learn as much as I can about period clothing and garb construction.I won our Barony’s annual Arts and Sciences competition and will spend my year as champion encouraging other members in their projects and competitions.I have been Baronial Scribal officer, MoAS, and have participated in demos and have taught some classes in scribal and textile arts.
I began a project after competing in the Kingdom Arts and Sciences competition in May that I am calling “The Year of Living Norse”.My goal is to spend this year completing an authentic (as possible) Norse era outfit and accessories.
