House Capuchin Shield2This feels so strange. This past month all the big tourneys that start the season were cancelled. A bunch of the big demos are cancelled. The fairs are all cancelled. It’s like we’re in a holding pattern, but with all that, SCAdians are coming together in different ways.

Classes, dance videos, silly fun. It’s all going up online.

People are doing retrospectives of previous events. Get-togethers for sewing or games or crafts are happening. People are finding ways to do courts and vigils and such (there’s an online vigil this weekend) and it’s all the in the virtual realm.

Your scribe doesn’t get to very many events in the flesh, anymore. This has turned into a feast for my Elephant’s Child to learn and play and enjoy with my SCA family. It’s made a rough and scary time bearable.

Over this last weeks of reports, there are tons of links to the above. We also have lots of herb/plant stuff in the newsletter, even if the Herb Bunch isn’t able to meet… and we’re working on that. Lots and *lots* of cookery! (One of your scribe’s addictions is to getting together with other cooks!) …which means recipes (stuffed beets?) and even a mini-potluck. Embroidery and sewing are something else we’re doing quite a lot of.

You can see the layers better in this one.

or the month of June and probably July, we’re keeping House stuff in the Virtual Realm. We have a Virtual Weekly Project Day to show off projects and a monthly Virtual Potluck, to show off cookery. Depending on how the plague is progressing we might start doing more mini-potlucks, or project days. Watch the weekly reports for info on these… and if the camera shows up soon, look for House classes!
