A New Experience! Blue Monday
It's BLUE MONDAY time! Please visit Smiling Sally for more blue blogging!
In January, our family moved from a rural Eastern Oregon town of about 16,000 to a much larger community an hour north of Seattle and an hour south of Vancouver, BC. Since then, we've had many new opportunities and experiences.
Yesterday, we attended a medieval war tournament hosted by a member group of our regional reenactment group. Here is the dress I made for it:
I am now also known as Lady Gairwyn of the Freehold of Arandor! This next picture shows some blues on a warrior's uniform (please disregard the modern vehicles in the background! Ha!):
A little more blue during Ogre Wars:
Here is my husband and his friend doing a demonstration of medieval Italian-style sword fighting. My husband is on the right. I also made his surcoat:
Meet Sir Corbinian of the Freehold of Arandor!
Lots of fun! Happy bLuE mOnDaY!
