My hobby ate me.
[warning, SCA-ish heavy]
What happened was a) SUN on 11/13/2010 , for which I was teaching (some number of classes which may have been four), so I was busy with getting that ready. Then HSMs went and put myself and the Consort on vigil for the Order of the Laurel, and things kind of got squirrely. There was planning, and more planning, and research and more research, and then sewing, and more sewing (and a certain amount of ripping), and we were a trifle busy. Now that the elevation has happened, I can sort of breathe again. A little.
What I was planning on posting, initially, was the first installment of a 3-part article on 13th century overgarments. Now it's a 4-part, because I wasn't originally planning on including academic garments but since I've now made four of them, I really don't have an excuse not to add them.
