Last night, I invited all interested parties to the first scribal night of the fall, and what a lovely time was had.

William and Isabetta were the first to arrive some time after six, and by that time I'd managed to cut down, lay out and start to sketch and ink in the borders of a re-make of Lord Edricus' Dragon's Tear scroll.

I modified the illuminations a little, as I re-made it at half the size of what I had. And I chose to use my own batarde hand for the calligraphy as well, because I know it, and it is pretty.

I made a little mistake with the text, which turned out to be a good thing, because the text was too short and needed to be expanded to fill the space. After a bit of brainstorming the three of us came up with new wording to work in my mistake as well :)

I finished the calligraphy and the border is inked, so I have only to gild and paint now.

We were all quite surprised when my doorbell rang after eight in the evening, though. When I opened the door it turned out to be a lady who has come to one meeting with Aros before. She had seen my notice on facebook about the scribal night and decided to come, so I got to play at being a chatelaine again, trying to figure out what sorts of things she'd like to do. She's about to move to a place not too far from William and Isabetta, and expressed an interest in sewing circle - so information was exchanged and we'll do our best to get her to come to the next sewing circle.

I also decided that I'm making Monday nights a standing invitation for Scribal Night at my place. So anyone in the vicinity between 17 and 22 are welcome to work on scribal things, or just hang out. I've got coffee and tea, and some materials for beginners.

That's wonderful to hear! And speaking of Nordmarky scribal stuff, I'll be writing you (and probably Elsa and Adorian too) offlist about a new commission I've just received from TRM.

Oki. Looking forward to it. I did just accept a Nordmark commission from Their Highnesses. But if I can get some momentum going, who knows how much one might produce :)
