Vigil of Luceta di Cosimo — September 29

On the 29th day of September, at the celebration of the Coronation of Anna Leigh and Harvest Raid XXV, a vigil shall occur so that THLady Luceta di Cosimo may prepare her answer to Our Majesties’ royal order that she contemplate elevation to the most noble Order of the Laurel.

We are seeking sustenance and refreshment for those offering to her their counsel and guidance. Any who would be pleased to create a food or beverage contribution, here is the information you need:

There will be cookies:
Luceta has requested a cookie table for her reception & vigil. If you are interested in contributing cookies, please contact THLady Muirgheal inghean Dubhghaill at muirgheall@gmail.com. If you are able, please email her or pm her with your recipe so that she is able to have the ingredients listed on the table. Luceta would like to add your recipe to her vigil book; you may enter them or she would be happy to have them added for you! Please keep in mind that *nuts* *flowers* *seafood* are not welcome as ingredients, as Luceta is allergic.

There will be food:
As I’m sure many of you already know, our wonderful Luceta DiCosimo will be sitting vigil for elevation to the Order of the Laurel at Harvest Raids the weekend of the 28th. In addition to a cookie table, coordinated by  Muirgheal, there will also be lots of non-cookie things to eat. I, Lady Kattera Doplerin, have a few specific things I’ll be making, and I will be coordinating the non-cookie offerings. There will be a gluten-free table as well. If you would like to contribute food, hands, or anything else related to consumption (the action, not the illness), please send me an email! I can be reached at LegbasCrossroad@gmail.com. Please keep in mind that *nuts* *flowers* *seafood* are not welcome as ingredients, as Luceta is allergic.
Thank you from Kattera!

Demo — August 30 — Save the Date!

Dear friends —

Save the date! I know everyone is super busy with Pennsic prep, but I wanted to let everyone know that we were invited to demo at the Children’s Museum Medieval Maker night on Thursday, August 30, from 6:30 to 9:30.

This is a 21 + event, so no clearances are required. They are looking for 20-25 demonstrators, and are looking for fiber artists (weavers, nalbinders, knitters, dyers, enbroiderers, and all the rest), calligraphers, illuminators, equestrians, fighters, fencers, siege engineers, musicians, singers, dancers, royalty – you name it!

i Genesii has been the first to step up, they will be running a play date and getting spectators involved! Who else will be there?

We had several makeshop demos with them, and they really like working with the SCA. They are very flexible and accommodating, so if you want to be a part of it, let me know!

More details to follow. It will be awesome!

12th Night Top 10 from the Baroness

We had a wonderful time this past Saturday at 12th Night! Thank you to the autocrats, THL Elss and THL Muirgheal, and all your staff. It was a day of merriment and laughter! Here are some of out favorite moments, in no particular order:

  1. The Court of Misrule, administered skillfully and with maximum ridiculousness by the incomparable I Genesii. The King (Lord Kuma), and the Queen (Lady Aine) of Misrule declared many silly things, including calling all Peers “Monster” or “Monstress”, and voguing instead of bowing, among other silliness. It was fun!
  2. Our beautiful new red wool garb, made in just a week by Mistress Ts’vee’a. Thank you!
  3. The ball! An amazing time dancing, with so many dancers! One of the best balls in the Kingdom every year. Thank you to Lord Pavel and all the musicians! And thank you for allowing the Baron and Baroness a dance to ourselves (Rosiboli Gioioso) to end the night. It was lovely!
  4. The Amazing Auction of Highly Desirable Items. Always so much cool stuff, and again, raised enough to cover the cost of the event, so our yearly revel can remain free! Thank you for running it again, Baroness Elizabeth. And, uh, sorry about Otto and Carl bidding on everything… I’ll make sure to explain to them what a “minimum bid” is next time….
  5. The Baronial Bard competition was superb! You made me laugh so hard! Vivat to our new champ, THL Silence!
  6. The Pillow fights! The kids just kept going and going – so much fun! Thanks to THL Jorundr and Mistress Arianna for running it, and Lady Arthes for MOLing, plus THL Muirgheal stepping in to marshal when the kids wanted to keep going after time was up.
  7. Cookies! Thank you Meistari Urho for running the cookie competition again. They were tasty, tasty things! I picked Snickertangles as  my favorite. Snickerdoodles and Tang!! Lady Luceta plays to the audience. 🙂
  8. Court. Small and fun, and always a favorite, to recognize folks that give so much to our beloved Barony! A privilege and honor. And…ummm…. I’m really sorry about throwing the kisses so hard. Baronessing lesson #243: largesse tossing… always underhand!
  9. The wonderful A&S entries. Thanks to all that entered, and congratulations to the new champ, THL Bugga, for her beautiful knitted socks.
  10. The amazing rubbings activity run by Lady Maire. Just beautiful artwork! And thank you for providing an extra prize for Court!
  11. (What, so I can’t count…) The Brewers’ Tap Room. Mmmmmmm. ‘Nuff said.

And of course, the very best thing…all of you! A beautiful day of laughter and eating and drinking and frolicking and fun. Exactly what a 12th Night should be! Thank you all so much!
