Baron War 2011

Saturday I entered my Celtic Birds project, still on the loom, in the Arts & Sciences Competition at the Baron War (an SCA event) in Ohio.  By populace bean count I won first place in the event.  I did not know at that time the winner of the 'War' was determined by 3 points.  Whoever got 2 out of the 3 of points won the war.  My barony (Roaring Wastes) had one point.  They lost the second battle therefore lost the other point.  The deciding point (3rd) was given to the A&S winner.  That was me.  I didnt know that.....

During court at the end of the day I was the first called before the King and Queen to name who I was siding my point to.  Of course, Roaring Wastes.  It was the best day of my SCA life.  I chose the victor of the War.

I could have been given no greater honor.

To Their Royal Majesties, King Arch & Queen Runa of the Middle Kingdom,

I say thank you

 Wow, has it  been that long since an update.....?  I am soooooo sorry.

Well, I've been so busy.  It's not quite finished but should be by early next week.  75 rows to go.

Heres the blank chart half as published in the book.....

 looks a little confusing but here is the whole chart (half copied and inverted) colored. in.....

11/0 seed beads (11 beads an inch)
240 beads wide
330 beads tall
10 row top and bottom borders

That's 84,000 beads!!!!

Here is how it looks so far....

And the next project is bigger!!!!
Am hoping to get  at least a third of the large one done before Pennsic.  Wish Me Luck!
