Re: belt pouch

interesting - I'd never seen that before! I'm gonna have to try one someday. :) Regarding the Sutton Hoo purse: I've always taken it as evidence that belt pouches generally were a thing in that time/place, and the buried person simply had a particularly nice one. Much like for us rich people have ca...

Re: belt pouch

It's the stitched-on top flap that gets my attention. :) I think I started doing things that way after looking at too many 14th c. girdle purses and 18th c. shot pouches. I don't know how "in period" it is for Eriador to stitch on the top flap rather that just make the back and flap one pi...

Re: MERF Random Adventure Pictures

It is beautiful!!! How strange to see so much sun! Here in New England the snow is starting to turn to slush, so I imagine you're starting to smell fall on the air? I totally understand your conflict: I had to live in CA for a couple years for work, and as truly beautiful as it was outside of the ci...

Re: Waxing linen

That's awesome! I second the toggle idea - or even a ring attached to the drawcord opposite the side where it ties. ... the advantage there is that the weight of the bag is carried on the ties themselves, which means that there's much less pressure on any stitching. (You can't see it in the snapsack...

Re: New version of my original Dunedain Star turtle brooch

That is AMAZING - am I seeing it right that it's in two metals? Or is that an artifact of the cleanup process?

The Eagles! The Eagles!

Hey pirate reenactors, gotta question...

.. My workdesk looks out over the pasture, and currently I keep a modern 10x monocular by the window for checking out critters along the treeline. As I've been generally comfy-fying the workarea, it occurred to me a brass "Victorian / pirate-y" pocket telescope would be so much more twee. ...
