I am never sure what to write for these bio things. I am an American living in England with my husband and two doggies. We love living across the pond and hope to stay indefinitely. I'm a historic costume nut who has studied various periods and geographic areas (both in and out of the SCA defined period) for many many years. The bug first hit me when I was about 7 and has been a love of mine ever since. About 8 years ago, I started sewing and though my sewing skills still aren't always up to par with my costuming ideas, I learn more every day.
