Did you know that for year-to-date 2007, forty four Sable Thistles have been
given out? And of those forty four.... exactly FOUR were for the scribal
arts? (That's 9%) Fully HALF of the number given for Costuming (They had 8
given out). (All totalled, there have been 1748 thistles given out in
Ansteorran history, with 136 being granted in any form of the scribal arts,
(7.7% of all Thistles) if you were curious. Yes, I'm a nerd and numbers
sometimes get fascinating.)
I know that we have some AMAZING artists in Ansteorra. I bet *you* know an
artist who has been working on their skills as a calligrapher or illuminor
for over a year, who has shown improvement, and demonstrated their skills!
Please ... bring these good gentles to the attention of Their Royal
Majesties and Their Royal Highnesses, and send in an Award Recommendation.
This public service announcement brought to you by Zubeydah, who really
should be in the kitchen making food for the event this weekend.... but is
working on the scribal site instead.
