Sewing (History)

An SCA (Society for Creative Anachronism) friend of mine opened my eyes to Medieval sewing and suddenly geometry made sense. This Pinterest board is full of period patterns for making all sorts of lovely outfits whether for costuming or comfort.

Characters (Writing)

    Twitter article is interesting, but I have to say that, as I hate analytics, I don’t track Tweets for ROI, any more than I target what blog posts I’m going to write by how many hits I get to my blog.

      Umm, yeah, I’m with you there too. I have a Twitter account because I like to read what other people are posting, so analytics don’t really come into play, but that doesn’t stop me from evaluating whether I should change how I use it either. Mainly, I’d need to show up more often for ROI to have any real meaning.
