And Away We Go!

Welcome to my new blog!  My "regular" project blog was already overloaded with house-y things and gardening, and my poor little SCA posts were getting lost...and not all that popular with readers who were there for plants and furniture, either.  

But then there was a star danced, and under that was I born. Er...I mean, HEY LOOK, it's a blog devoted entirely to costuming!  Okay, actually, lots more than just costuming.  I also make jewelry, paint, build furniture (and hopefully a period pavilion of my very own, soon), and do lots of other things.  That's what this little corner of the internet is for.

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. 

that's me!
So, this ought to be fun.  I hope you enjoy it!



  1. Dear Lady Madylyne, I've just read your blog from newer to old, and completely enjoyed it. I'm inspired by the sewing box, the 5 things for largesse, and all your sewing. I'm also a wee bit envious of your being able to 'throw something together' and make it look so easy! ;-)

    I followed someone's Pin to your pearl edged veil, and found much more to read. It even has me contemplating whether doing my own blog would keep me a little more focused on actually finishing projects, as opposed to my ADD scattergun approach. A big challenge, especially for Miss I-Forgot-to-Take-Pictures-AGAIN.

    Thank you for the inspiration, and I hope you continue to have fun!

  2. Oh, my goodness, thank you SO much Elfreda. I'm so glad I've inspired someone to do anything, hehe. I bet you'd enjoy blogging - I wasn't sure I should do it, but I've had SO much fun at it. Good luck! :)


Hooray, comments! Be nice to each other, and to me. Or I shall boot your ass and then mail you a dead fish. :D
