Barony of the Lonely Tower Revel

The Barony of the Lonely Tower held their annual Arts and Sciences Championship competition and revel yesterday. These pictures highlight the painting, socializing, court and dining. 

Lady Aleit de la Thomme won the honor to be Barony's Arts and Sciences Champion for the coming year. Her entry was three sleeves and the documentation that illustrates the way the sleeves broke their era's sumptuary laws.

Enjoying Our Shared Meal Together
Lady Aleit, the new Arts and Sciences Baronial Champion, absolutely deserved the honor she received. The competition was a well-fought effort as her challengers were also highly qualified. 
My many friends in the Barony of the Lonely Tower welcome and enjoy the mingling and crafting conversation.  It's our greatest learning and sharing excuse.
