Happy New Year!

Coronation was a celebration of wonder. As we danced OZ and Marissa out of court in disco fashion. We all hailed in Agrippa, red face and all, and Bridget were carried in by drawn carriage, trumpets, dancers, and palm fanning ladies — a spectacular entrance.

I was not well but stayed for feast and attended the festivities that followed at the Best Western and forgot I was sick for awhile (the ALCOHOL DID HELP).

I am sad that QC was cancelled but was glad to get home before the storms on Sunday.

Thank you to Asakura and Cristof for helping me make the tied 3 way first place in Dirty dozen for our roman cups with bags. There were 26 beautiful entries in Dirty Dozen (many from Altavia), but it was the presentation of over 1000 pieces of largess by Horsemen that was most impressive.

It has always been Bridget’s way of giving gifts to those who help and support (that’s were I get it from – my great grandma Bridget) She gave all feast servers and cooks a gift to thank them and was able to do so because of all the largess given to her.

Please keep the largess coming tokens, bracelets etc…

I will not be at Angels Melee which is now Queen’s Champion for Heavies, Rapier, Unarmored, and Youth. Baron Cristof should be there with dragon wing work permitting. Please check with him on Friday as I will be out of town.

I am planning on going to Unbelted, and am looking at patterns and fabric for a Venetian for Festival of the Rose.
