Housecarl speaking as a amatuer artist your 'Rendition' is quite good compared to some. As to authenticity don't worry about it, I do lots of sketches as I get ideas flooding in and have to get them on paper asap. Otherwise at my age its gone if I blink, the fact is you have a skill many would envy ...

Re: Tewkesbury 07 DVD

This is still on offer if anyone is interested, it covers both battles. Sunday's is better due to midfield location, it is amateur filmwork but those who have viewed it liked it. Priced at £5 each all proceeds are for the 08 Anniversary event. I did manage to grab some good closeup scenes including ...

Another version....The march north was carelessly conducted. 0ne of the tenets of medieval warfare was that there should be good scouting, and normally this was very competently done. Although mounted men usually fought on foot when battle was joined, there were plenty of horsemen for scouting dutie...

Cladding the shield in rawhide is best in the longrun! you can obtain small rolls of it at pet suppliers. Soak it in water 24hrs and apply with carpet tacks! (nearset equivelent to ancient nails) edge it with the knotted type of rawhide which after soaking unravels into nice lengths Your shield shou...

AJ my wife took about 4days to handsew it together then, it took me
2 days to add the hand painted heraldry just one side for this wall hanger.

But all done around the domestic chores not in one continuous length of time, sometimes working on an evening.

How would you define working from home creating items and selling to all

As for P the P comments re profit I understood if you did not exceed
a certain amount say £30,000 just for an example, you had no need to
register??.

All advice gratefully recieved.
