    ... and what a fantastic night it was!

    Everyone gathered at 9 PM EST at the Blue Boar Tavern in West Britain, Britannia.

    A fun filled drunken adventure for all, including a whole bunch of trivia. Over 25 questions I'd say. Galen took first place at answering the most, and Martyna Zumir coming in at second.

    Then we headed over to the King's Men Theatre for a "newbie" costume show. (I can't say fashion, it wasn't pretty! Except for Fifi Laforge and Hearts Desire) There was no winning or losing here, just good fun and taking a stroll down memory lane..

    Next up at the theatre, there was a tailoring competition. Eight tailors arose from the audience and were given a bag with a sewing kit, and 100 pieces of cloth. They were told to make as many skullcaps as you could in 60 seconds. Hearts Desire, Dot Warner and a Crack Fiend were announced to have a sew-off.

    The sew off was to craft as many.. oil cloths?! as you could in 60 seconds..

    The top winners of the Trivia Contest and Tailoring Competition will be awarded by having their names put in the Award Hall, next update.

    Afterwards the EM's provided the audience with a small intermission, and they headed off to Deciet where some special monsters were awaiting to be slain. Including a reaper from 1997, a mongbat from 1997, and then some crazy red people that killed a lot of innocent people!

    It was a great success.. Sorry we didn't see you there Lava, but I took good notes for you :)

    Unfortunately, this has one thing wrong: As I recall the librarian beat me in the trivia contest. (Not due to lack of trying on my part.)

    *sighs*

    Oh well; can't have everything.

    I was indeed there as you can see by my NEWS report but often I am on other toons. The EMs know all my toons. I cannot always report right away as real life does come into play sometimes. I have taken up quilting the past year and I have orders for Xmas and birthday quilts and I have deadlines on some of them and they are time consuming.

    Quilt away, by all means.. We all have our own priorities, hobbies, and the like. I've actually been sewing since I was four, when I got my first sewing machine. Though, I prefer embroidery myself, or crochetting. I also have been potting for five years now. But that's not what I was talking about.

    Yes I posted pictures of an event. And said some things. We all do it. I want life to come back to Stratics, and I see no harm in doing that.

    I look forward to your reading my work in the future. :)

    Hope you had a relaxing weekend and got a few squares done! (I have to finish a row before I stop otherwise i just start procrastinating.)


    Hearts: We looked fab in our newbie orange crafter specific outfits! We were def in the top ten, there were some good ones. And I love the new fall look of the shop! Those Maples are gorgeous! I love buying out your stone and pillow vendors, you and everyone always do an awesome job at keeping up with stocking. I'm always going there when I'm decorating, and the prices are always great!
