Barony Flags I made

The newest Barony in the Middle Kingdom of the SCA with in the Midlands is Ayerton and To match the other Barony's of this Region they now have a flag. I am glad that Max asked me to make them He also payed for all the fabric. I am very proud of them. Max is the tallest one I am the one taking a knee in front. Mistress Carolin is the one behind me. It was her Idea to get a photo with me. I am so glad I don't look too bad in this photo.
Funny story I was doing some last minute clean up work on

A Clay Brick Bread Oven

Here is the Clay and Brick oven that the Barony built at a Historic Recreation Site of Lewis and Clark's Winter Camping Site. The first time we tested it it made 30 min bread in 10 min.
I will be out there today Helping to bake bread as a Demonstration with some of the other members.

Beaded spiders

These little friends are also for the Wist list swap on Crafters. I had every thing on hand except the crystal beads so I went to Michael's and used a 40% off coupon and got three glass beads they started out at $4. I have one left I think I will make myself one of these for me.
So for all 4 Crafted Items for this swap I only had to go out and spend around $4.50. This was of course because of my large and unusual stash.
A link to the inspiration piece it was $5

Game Board Coasters

Here is the other Scrabble craft item that my partner wisted. I did have to go out and buy more clear contact paper because it seems I was out. I covered the whole board with it then on the back of the board divided it up into 3 1/2 in squares then cut them out. I used Black duct tape to edge them. I like them and I think I might make my mom a set for Christmas. I hope she doesn't read this.
so you relies the game was not a complete set. I didn't destroy a usable game.
A link to the inspiration that were originally $15

Scrabble Ornements

This is for the Wist List Swap I am participating in on Craftsters.
I cut the Scrabble holder to fit the two words better. then centered the words. I pre-drilled pilot holes for the hangers. I picked this person because she had two Scrabble items on her list and I had bought a Scrabble set at a thrift store with crafting in mind. She only had Peace but I though who couldn't use a little Joy too.
Here is a link to the inspiration

Felt Skull Ornements

These Skulls are ornaments for a swap. I made these for a wist swap, on crafters.
We each make 5 points worth of things from each others wist list or things inspired by their wist list.  this is a 2 to 3 point project. Only the eyes are machined. They are hand embroidered and hand edged with a blanket stitch. Here is the inspiration, you have to scroll down to the photo of them

These I made a medal workers and Glass symposium. I never really left the Glass area the whole weekend. except to eat and sleep.
