I have a thing!!
"a glutton for books"
That's what the title means. If you've seen my library you know from whence I speak. Anyway, this is meant to be an actual project diary and repository, since my project LJ has turned into a really fancy to-do list.
I am a long-time member of the SCA, primarily interested in England in the late 12th and early 13th centuries. It is probably safe to say I am a history and authenticity geek. Here you may find my projects and research into 12th and 13th century clothing and accessories, medieval textiles and textile processing, cooking, calligraphy & illumination, embroidery, and anything else that catches my interest.
