I am one class shy of being done with finals for the term, and I had the pleasure of being able to tie in a project I have been wanting to make for awhile now as the final project in my Design class. Our assignment was to create a six word story. I came up with "Through the starry sky they reign". I used the ravens to represent the Mother, Madien, and Crone, and used elements from my SCA arms to inspire the design.
I was lucky enough to find this piece of blue wool at St. Vinnie's for under $10. It even had the Pendleton Woolen Mills tag still on it. It practically screamed "make a coat out of me". The lining was a gift from my Laurel when she took me as an apprentice. I had to do several layouts to make sure the pattern could be cut from the lining since it was only 36" wide.
I am really happy with the result, and kinda bummed that I won't get the chance to wear it until August.
