So, who am I? I'm Madylyne Taylor of Bryn Gwlad, an early 15th-century Englishwoman in The Stellar Kingdom of Ansteorra. (m.k.a. Austin, Texas). I joined the SCA in January of 2011 (so, yes, starting a blog might be getting ahead of myself a little bit...but who doesn't?). I'm a singer in the local choral guild (for which I also run a blog), a member of the local early music guild, a sometime-archer, and, like, many other folks around here, I freaking love sewing! I've been doing it since I was nine years old, and a good half of my total sewing experience has been with costumes, historical and otherwise.
