A scroll went out last weekend, and I’m actually posting about it in a timely manner. Hopefully this will be the start of a trend. This scroll was for one of many recent AoA level Silver Awards, one of my fellow companions of the silver rapier. Despite a Viking persona, I was not feeling up … More Silver Rapier Grimolfr Skulason

This is based upon the Hours of Catherine of Cleaves c.1440 MS … More Seamstress Scroll Creation
