Yet another intro

I'm Leonor, hailing from the Outlands, and I have a late 16th century Spanish persona and a much better-developed 14th century Ilkhanid Mongol persona.

I like embroidery, dyeing (although I don't do enough of it), fingerloop braiding, kumihimo, and tablet-weaving (which I don't do enough of). I don't like sewing, but I do it so I have stuff to embellish. I don't spin or knit, unlike all the other fiber geeks. But I love and adore thread-wrapped buttons.

So, my current list of goals:

1) actually dye some of my vast quantity of silk thread
2) make a reasonable double-faced tablet-woven belt
3) make or buy a nice kumihimo stand
4) make a project that actually USES thread-wrapped buttons instead of just accumulating bags of them

Ooo! Thread-wrapped buttons! I'll have to add that to our group profile list of interests! Nice

They're such a classic case of the work-versus-cost issue with decorative awesomeness. I love them so and they are cheap (and so common in period!), but so time-consuming.

You can make a nice cassock (sp) it has about 120-140 buttons...
