A&S 50

Below is a list of my projects, either in-progress or completed. Items are numbered to assist me in tracking my progress in the SCA’s A&S 50 Challenge, which involves creating 50 things in the Arts & Sciences before May 1, 2015 in honor of the Society’s 50th birthday. Those items with additional information or photos offer links.
