'Vom Anfang'

'Of the beginning' which is also the motto I chose from a selection that Mistress Rowan Perigrynne offered for her baronial banner.

Indulge me for a moment, while I drag out some photos of my earliest banners. My earlier again stuff included a panel of devices, which I painstakingly handpainted. It was destroyed by an idiot, who no doubt thought he was being clever. Oh well, it wasn't my best work, so at least I can't look at it and cringe now.

These are some pennants I made for House Shadowfall (of which I am a member). They are hand-painted using fabric paint, the material is some kind of cotton, possibly a mix with something 'fake', but it was lovely to paint on and easy to use. My mum helped me sew them up, so they are squared on the bottom instead of rounded or pointed. I have used everyone's devices and colours from the Shadowfall badge. The motto is 'Noli Pati Injusticium', which translates to 'Suffer Not Injustice'.

And yes, they are hanging from a clothesline in my Mum's backyard...
These are not researched and were a quick solution to spiffing up the Shadowfall enacampment at Festival. I am happy with them as they all look quite effective, I guess I should get around to making the others sooner or later...
