Portfolio of Work by Linda,
known in the SCA as Halima al-Rakkasa

Textiles are just so... tactile: wool, silk, linen, cotton. Each fibre has its ideal use, and I plan to find them all (though life may be a bit short to go into any depth). I like spinning fibre into thread and yarn. I like weaving. I like netting. Though I've taught classes on these things, I don't have anything in the notebook yet; that'll come. In the meantime, stash each of your projects in its own zip-lock-type baggie with all the tools and materials you need to work on it; you'll never have to hunt the bits down again before putting some serious time into the project!
