Re: Joining the need wallet club

In retrospect, I think my needwallet is still on the large side, though how to get it smaller and still have room for a couple crackers and a cordial I've not yet figured out. Eventually I'll give it another go, but it'll be a while I fear. I think one of the tricks with size is that it takes a gre...

Re: Joining the need wallet club

The Gladden fields reference IS the most recent (in-timeline) reference, and it's the only one that contains the phial of cordial. It's also the only reference that actually names the pouch a need-wallet. The other reference we have for such a pouch I have inferred to be an earlier evolutionary iter...

Re: Need Wallet and Sheath

The sides are still awesome, as I noted before, but now that I see how they're constructed, they're all the more brilliant. I may give them a whirl on a different project. Thanks for the layout!

Re: Working On a New Jerkin

No apology necessary, friend! When reasons like "Screw it, I like them" come up, I like throwing my own two cents into the mix, if only to bolster others' reasonings for using a functional garment...never intended it as an argument against your own preference! To each his own, and very val...

Re: Working On a New Jerkin

Since we really lack textual evidence for the use of jerkins by the Dunedain, my reasoning consists of this: 1) It's more durable, so there's a decent chance that it'll prevent excess wear from thorns and brush to the torso of expensive hand-stitched garments. It's not going to stop a knife, but it ...

Re: Fantasy Style Pouch

Very nicely done. Manveruon has done a few pouches and things with that closure system, and has said nothing but good things about it...I expect you'll enjoy using this for years!

Re: Working on a Bree-lander kit

SO MUCH GOOD going on here! I don't know the period extensively, so I'm going to pass on commenting on minutia, but I will say that it looks very cohesive, culturally relevant, and pretty much exactly what I'd expect to run into in a place with mixed races like Bree.

Re: Taking photos while out

For years, I just carried a smaller digital camera with a 10-second timer and would jam it into a low crotch in a tree or balance it on a rock until the shot I wanted was framed right, and then go run in front of it to insert myself into the frame. Still works, but a tiny tripod makes an enormous di...

Re: MERF Random Adventure Pictures

Very nice! Looks like a great time out! I'm always fascinated to see forests from around the globe and compare to what I know...some things are SO different, and yet there are similarities in how a forest is 'grown' that can be found pretty much everywhere. The more things change, the more they stay...
