Baroness Anna de Brabant is sponsoring a themed A & S Competition at Solstice Court this year. The theme is . . . SHEEP - and it can be interpreted any way you like! You can use the image of a sheep (or a whole heard) in your work or it can be made of a sheep product (think wool embroidery or garb, lanolin soap, lamb sausage, etc.). Use your imagination and have fun with it! Prizes will be awarded.
Documentation is required, but a one-page summary with all the pertinent information will be acceptable. This would be a great opportunity to practice documentation in advance of the Kingdom A & S Championship in the spring. A thorough review of documentation will be arranged for those who desire it.
