Sophia’s fingers hurt from twisting them around each other as she had been doing for the majority of the morning. Asking father for something could either be extensively intimidating and rejection enhancing, or it could be the complete opposite; Full of excitement, hope and happiness. It really all depended on his mood and the sensibility of the request in question.

She took a deep breath and straightened her shoulders. She was a descendant of a stalwart, brave lot, full of knights, nobility and even one famed ancestor who, though being a lady, had won in a jousting tournament against the king’s own bodyguard and most trusted knight. If only she could be more like Lady Agatha, the woman who, though dead these 30 years, was still talked about with pride and awe amongst the town folk. But Sophia was a timid girl.

VAVC Vlog #6

I have two video offerings for you today! I hope you enjoy them! I am thinking about making videos a somewhat regular staple here on the blog. Even though they are a bit of work, I don’t think they are any more than a blog post. And, I don’t know. I have some already made ready to go up and I haven’t posted them. So get ready for some vids!

Starting off is VAVC Vlog #6. Ivy had some great questions. . . again. Feel free to join the fun!

And here is a random bit of me singing. I loved these hymns and sang them once during my ride, so I pulled out my phone and sang it again. I hope you enjoy it! Don’t mind the terrible quality. Open-mouthed smile

 

Be sure to comment, let me know what you think, or just say Hi! Love you all!

Feminine Peplum Tunic Tutorial

Tutorial

I had this fabric in my stash for a while. I purchased it when it was on sale from Girl Charlee, my favorite knit fabric resource. They always have some gorgeous florals and if you know anything about me you know that I absolutely adore florals. This one was so pretty and after making a batch of headbands, I saved the rest for myself. I had the idea for this peplum, relaxed knit tunic top that I wanted to make and I decided to go for it. It only took me a few hours to draft the pattern and sewing it together was a snap. It took less than 20 min to have it assembled. This pattern was super easy and I can’t wait to make another one!Read More »

Writing Prompt 046

She was inadequate.

Utterly unworthy.

As a young queen, she had watched her husband with awe and admiration. The king was bold, brave, wise. . . everything a king should be. Her beloved husband was kind, compassionate, yet still a ruler. Someone the entire kingdom looked up to.

Yet as she stood, waiting to go out before her people, her legs felt week and trembling. Her shoulders pinched with the pain of the stress she was under. Her eyes were dry and her heart throbbed hard in her ears, reverberating through her aching head with an intensity that made her stomach roil.Read More »

Andora's Folly Cover 7.jpg

SYNOPSIS

A Pandora’s Box retelling

Andora is a beautiful young woman with insatiable curiosity. Raised in splendor, she is spoiled by her privileged life. When a love letter is slid under her door, her life takes a drastically unromantic turn. Nothing makes sense—her arranged marriage, the gifts her parents bestow on her wedding day, or her new husband’s temperament.

As Andora begins to unravel the mysteries around her, she ignites a chain of events that have the power to sabotage her entire village forever. Only her new-found wisdom as a desperate peasant’s wife can save her from her folly.
