I am excited to see all the entries at Northkeep's Kingdom A & S this past weekend.  I am impressed with the work put into each and every display.  I found myself hoovering around several displays of my current interests:

(Illumination & Calig)
   Suzanne Gabrielle Marie Beraud- "A Quire (Quaternum) of Foliage Pages from the Gцttingen Model Book" 

   Damon Hroarson wrote "The Vineyard Process: Medieval vs. Modern"
   Master Modius- "Weiss Wein, Rhein Wein, Riesling Wein (White wine, Rhein wine, Riesling wine)" 

   HL Hanna von Dahl: "Reconstructing Designs from an Italian Sampler" 
   Ly Angelique Le Woulfe- "16th Century Blackwork Cuff Replica" 

I hope that one day soon I will be able to compete with an outstanding display as well. . . 

I'd like to note that Suzanne received a perfect score
on her entry, and was chosen to represent Ansteorra as
one of our artisans at Gulf War.

All of the pieces entered were really lovely, and it
was very exciting to see so many people trying out
challenging styles and experimenting with period
materials and tools.
