I want to apologize for both not being here, and for the LONG delay
some folks had in joining our group over the holidays. My loveing
husband and parents got me a new computer system as a present, my
internet died, and I couldn't transfer data etc to get back online
here until just now. My husband doesn't understand why I couldn't
get into Yahoo to approve folks to the group and neither do I, but
we're all here now, so hopfully that is the important part.
I am really excited by our newcomers (Welcome!) and by what you all
have been accomplishing! Wow! A&S entries, websites, photo
galleries - oh my! ;) It will take me a bit to look at everything,
but you have already inspired me to get cracking, so thank you!
Buried somewhere deep in my old system are the details, but someone
on this list was running an A&S 50 Session at her Twelfth Night this
past weekend... any report to share? If this went off as planned
this may have been the first official A&S 50 Session held outside of
the East Kingdom by someone other than me! Hurray! Anyone
interested in running a session can find details on how that works in
our files section on our Yahoo group page, or on our website (or you
can just ask me!) The more the merrier!
On the technical progress front, my husband had the brilliant idea of
asking a dear friend if we could coopt his forum code for A&S 50
purposes. I didn't want to bug him about it before the holidays, but
I will get on that soon, and hopefully he'll be his normal,
accommodating self, and say yes!
In more personal news, I just delivered a pack of Albreda Butt-
Lighting matches to an aspiring scribe here in my shire, giving her
permission to light a fire under me to invite her over for a day of
gouache-laden insanity. I need to tidy the studio first, so it won't
be until February, but at least now I have incentive! I am going to
have a VERY busy year, but I AM going to do some A&S of my own, darn
What are your goals for the year? How can we help? With all of the
brains and interests we have represented here, I'm sure that we can
be a really good resource for each other, so ask away!
For example - anyone have a recommendation as to where I can order
linen sewing thread, suitable for handsewing 5 oz linen shifts?
I hope your holidays were grand, and that we are each off to a good
start on 2008!
Best wishes -
Albreda, happy to be back in the land of the connected!!!
