Greetings to the Honorable and noble Tostig Logiosophia and the fair Gentles of Rosenfield
>From Duchess Willow de Wisp
Thank you for your kind words. I would like to past them along to all the wonderful artist and people who have helped make and maintain this set of Wall Hangings.
On your wall were pieces that go back to the first Wall hanging project done by the "Clan Caldal Twistie Beast Company" to create 12 Norse wall hangings for Count Sutan and Countess Regina's Coronation. and there were pieces that were done by other groups for Duke Inman's many coronations and Duke Master Michael coronation and some Steppes 12Th Night and the Rose Tournaments and the single place to inspire the making of Wall hangings Elfsea's Culture camps.
The people of Emerald keep worked on the large Black Roses and the Rose strips. Over the years as many as 40 people have worked to create these pieces of Art. Honorable Lord Roger Red hand and my Dear Mother Elizabeth of BranbleBush Being the real energy and spirit behind the Projects. And none of them would have been possible without the teaching and guidance of the Master Painter Mistress Branwyn. She bought the first of the painted Wall hangings to Ansteorra. I have it and I will put it in the History display at 30Th.
These Wall hanging only exist because the care they have been given by the "prop" masters. The leaders of this group are Lord Jonathan the Younger and Lord Richard Red Dog and His Grace Jonathan de Laufyson. I would like to thank the many Autocrats that have kept them safe.
I would like to thank all the people who donated money to the creation of these Wall hanging. Everyone of those wall hangings that you see now up were paid for by private donations. The people who gave me donations for my flowers or "magic" brooms told me that they supported the Wall hangings because they made Ansteorra special I promised the people of Ansteorra and the Artisans of Ansteorra who worked so hard on the wall hangings the they would always be used to make Ansteorra a special place. I hope they feel I have lived up to my promise.
I thank you for your thank you but I am just a very long thread in the tapestry of effort that makes the wall hangings possible. I want to thank all of them for making the Beauty of these pieces of Art live on.
