It was an interesting weekend. I'm putting off doing my chigong before I sleep to put my thoughts down on paper(sorta)

I went to the event in my home area called winterfeast. It was perfectly lovely with only one glaring exception, that my hubby was quite ill. He spent most of the event sleeping on the couch in the corner while Collin and I had fun. It was a right shame that he didn't enjoy himself as much as he could. But I told him he could just say the word and we could go home, but that stubborn man didn't want to leave while we were having fun.

Spent the morning chatting and sketching out a new illumination, with peacocks and angels. Its another wicked one from the Sforza Hours. I'm going to do them all one day. The afternoon was spend adventuring to the Lidl with Dutchess Fiona and discussing the state of the Royal Artisan Competition. I was truly honored that they allowed me to take part in the conversation. later, arranging to barter scrollwork/leatherwork for garb and for a proper set of feastgear. Allow the happydance to ensue.

Vegitarian feast. Interesting, though not something I'd care to repeat in the future. The only dish I truly enjoyed was the lentil paste, that I got to eat Indian style (with my fingers). There were just too many rasin dishes and combinations of flavors that would not agree with my stomach. I really really dislike rasins. Bleh.

Highlight of the day. I'm half listening to court and keeping an eye on my hubby, making sure he drinks enough water when they call the Order of the Panache into court. Lots of people I know, great artisans all of them. I'm like hey cool someone's getting a Panache, wonder if its someone I know well. Imagine my shock when the Panache turns out to be for me! I almost cried. Much praise ensues of my scroll work for which I am sure that the swelled ego will go away soon enough.

I could not stop staring at the little panache token that I have now. It's an excellent one according to Margaret de May. She got an Albion that evening too, which I think was much deserved because she's just wonderful. She will say otherwise but we know better. *nod*

Now I'm just dying of curiousity. WHO is doing my scroll? XD

Sweet. Congrats on the Panache. Is that an AoA level or GoA level? As for da hubby being sick hope he gets better soon.

I know I will not be doing your scroll. I do not know caligraphy and when asked last weekend to sign a peerage scroll I had the signet do it and then I made my mark.

It is an AoA level award. As for hubby, he's headed to the doctor tomorrow. He's got bronchitis at the very least I can hear it. I'd know more if I had a decent stethescope.

This is because you rock and everyone over there knows it! I am so happy for you! Just do not get on to fast of a track, I need to be able to afford to fly over when you get Laureled.

As for the sick hubby, I hope he is better and he would have been just as sick at home.

I don't think that they're even talking about me for a laurel. I don't think you need to worry about that.

A better question is, who do you want to do your scroll?? (Or do you want to be surprised?) Because we didn't know until too late whether you were going to be at the event or not, there wasn't time to plan anything in advance.

Well, is there anyone that has a real specialty? I would not mind having as many different styles as possible. :D

All right, if you'd like many different styles...what styles have you already got? I know you've got the QoC that I did for you; what style is your AoA scroll? And have you received any other awards beyond those two? (I notice that your AoA still isn't in the OP; if you send the info, or a pointer to the entry in the Midrealm OP to Lord Garsiyya at posthorn@drachenwald.sca.org, he maintains the OP and can fix this for you).

My AOA is a celtic initial. It's very very simple but beautiful.
Im not sure I have an entry in the Midrealm OP, I will look.
