about me
Just a former landed Baroness having a good time being me for a change! Amazon Daughter to Baroness Jan and Baroness Louise. Retired fencer (not by choice, but I can keep using my right arm or.... not). Occasional bellydancer. Now a Meridiot, but will always be an Ansteorran in my heart! Costumer to myself and my beloved other half.

Cat Tales

I head off to Gulf Wars in the morning. I don't think I could cram another THING into my poor car. Fortunately it's not a bad road trip at all, mostly good interstate the whole way.

Looking forward to spending time with my Household members and catching up with far away friends.

I may even have a tale or two when I get back. : )

Whelp... as of a little bit ago, I am now the proud owner of a real mink (recycled so no fur haters please) zebellini, otherwise known as a "flea-fur". It's gonna look really cool with some of the full-on court gowns I have in the works. *giggle*

Sewing has hit a fever pitch as I'm desperately trying to finish up ONE dang dress and a loose gown for the War. I also have to finish up a couple things for Steve as well. So much for having 2 dresses ready to go. *sigh* I hate it when w... read more

Seems like it was just summer, and now it's a week before Christmas!

We've added a new family member. We had a cute kitty find us Halloween night and he's become such a part of our lives it's hard to remember what it was like without him. We named him Cooper, and he's just a sweetpea.

I've finally gotten our office nearly re-organized with our built in desk and more shelves. Gee it's nice to have space to work!

We're gearing up for Christmas. House is as decorated as it's goin... read more

Got all my lovely new Margo Anderson patterns, and have more or less "promptly" gotten to work on new clothing.

I forgot one rather important thing.... I'm not a size 6 any more, and my old corset is WAY too small. Sooooo, I'm having to make all new stuff from the corset out. Not a problem really, it's just kind of depressing. :(

However, I'm loving the new patterns, and the detail she goes into in the instructions is wonderful. If I ever manage to figure out why I can't post picture... read more
