House Capuchin News from 10-23 – 11-22-18

House Capuchin Shield2Things have been calming down on the mundane front, so there’ve been more members checking in and starting projects. We also got to see a Friend of the House that lives back east who came by on a visit. Most of this month’s progress has been on trial run dishes for the Winter Feast, though, although we tried to get our largesse contribution out last week. I guess it’ll get handed off this coming month.

The fig rennet cheese spiced with cheese salt (caraway, mustard, wasabi powder in salt)

Another of the fig rennet cheeses happened early in the month, and we had some of it at the potluck. Next up is thistle rennet! Other dishes got researched like Parry of Pesoun and Cameline Sauce, and the sauces from Le Viandier are turning out to be pretty good. We also needed to find out what some ingredients listed for those were, including white verjus and red sugar.

Anja, Loren and Jay had to miss Adiantum’s Whistling Pig Tavern because of transportation problems, but we finished the month with another good potluck.

We have a couple of events coming up that

members are planning on. Not the least is Marya’s elevation to the Laurel at Tri-Baronial Yule! Anja is planning on going with William and Aesa.

Mixed. What colors!

This month (these are standard meeting times) 

  • Herb Bunch – At Ancient Light, Saturdays, 11am-1pm
  • Sewing Time – At Ancient Light, Saturdays, 3-5pm
  • Project Day – At Ancient Light, Sundays, Noon to 6pm

  • Potluck is usually 3rd Sunday of the month. In garb (if you can) and bring a dish to share! Next on 12/16, 1/20 (no Feb potluck)
Look at the wonderful color! That’s all the spices in the vinegar

House Capuchin News 9-22 through 10-22-18

House Capuchin Shield2This month has been all about resolving chaos while still doing things! It’s harvest month, too. From fig sap rennet cheeses, to oak gall ink, mushroom wicks, embroidery,  rose petal sachets, and trial runs on Winter Feast recipes we’ve been hard at it all month. We finished up with a fun, well-attended potluck this past Sunday and are deep in plans for getting to a few events over the winter.

Cutting the cap

This coming month is more of the same, except Anja is working on some pieces of garb for friends who are being made Laurels over the next couple of months, and others are working on gifts for the same people.

It looks like we’re going to have a steady group of mundanes in the Herb Bunch again this winter, so plans are being made for wood butter, bruise

salve and other such things.

…and planning for Winter Feast….

House Capuchin Report from 8-24 to 9-21-18

House Capuchin Shield2Moving was the big deal this month, as both Gudrun, and Anja and Loren were deep in the throes of it by the end of the month. Hopefully, next month will be easier…. once the mess is cleaned up….

We started after the last potluck, eating leftovers and cleaning up and got several projects that were finished mailed out to their recipients.

Crown and Coronet were both amazing. Hail to the Heirs! …and between the two, Summits is going to have three new Laurels: Marya at Tri-Baronial Yule (yeah, we share her with the Tri-Barony area), Seamus at 12th Night, and Vesta will be next after that! The other big news is that Mountain’s Edge has now become a part of the Summits!

Amor’s been working on making some bracers, Sabrina’s been weaving, Stella mostly working at the Farmer’s Markets and Sash and Amy just plain working. Loren and Anja are both doing some woodworking. He’s started another Hedeby bag frame and is sanding

The fig rennet cheese

on some bowls and a stool. Anja got a fair ways into finishing a butter spreader, along with her usual

Succulent pieces that are callusing. You can see roots starting on a few.

embroidery.

Herbs and cookery mostly went into harvesting and preparing, but a good cabbage pickle got made and our big deal was the fig sap rennet cheese that went to Shrewsbury! Anja got to Shrewsbury and to Coronet, taking some yummy food with her both times and Loren and Anja have been feeding the folks who have been helping them off of some of our usual foods, like the stews and pottages and pickles that have been made over the last few months.

Isabeau and Anja have done some preliminary versions of dishes for the feast and the Hall has been reserved and paid for.

We’re planning on meetings being at the normal time over the next month, no events or anything unusual. We might be able to have a cheese or a wine night once we’re in October. We’re hoping, anyway.

This month (these are standard meeting times) 

  • Herb Bunch – At Ancient Light, Saturdays, 11am-1pm
  • Sewing Time – At Ancient Light, Saturdays, 3-5pm
  • Project Day – At Ancient Light, Sundays, Noon to 6pm
  • Cheese and Wine is an occasional meeting. Watch our Facebook group for notices!

House Capuchin News 7-16 through 8-23-18

House Capuchin Shield2It’s been quieter for the House this month. Most people out here on the coast are up to their ears in work, with the tourist season in full swing, and mostly everyone is too tired to do much. There are still ongoing projects and we did have a good potluck, but next month should see things picking up a little, especially since some displays are going to Shrewsbury and largesse to the Principality.

KODAK Digital Still Camera

A hedeby bag got completed and sent off in a gift exchange along with some other goodies. We’ve done a *lot* of cooking, since we all have to eat. Anja’s garden has gotten shifted to a holding spot as they move and lots of starts and re-potting has been going on. Anja’s been working on some other embroideries, particularly a small collar band and cuffs to match Seamus’ shirt. 🙂 Amor, up in Alaska, has been doing a lot of knapping of obsidian and making tools for it. Sabrina is looking at carrying more local and handmade

The feast!

wool in her shop and using it in her weaving. Isabeau and Anja have been starting the process of planning and trying dishes for the feast, plus an idea for site tokens got floated and then started.

…and a lot of SCA politics blew up, so a few pieces that seemed worthwhile have been in the newsletters.

This month (these are standard meeting times) 

  • Herb Bunch – At Ancient Light, Saturdays, 11am-1pm
  • Sewing Time – At Ancient Light, Saturdays, 3-5pm

House Capuchin Activities from 5-21 through 7-15-18

House Capuchin Shield2Somehow we skipped one of these monthly posts, so I’ll fill in from back that far! …and there’s a lot here.

Our Winter Feast is set for February 17 and the hall reserved for the event, which will include a handfasting during the afternoon! Anja is autocrat, Isabeau is feast-crat, the theme is 1400’s France and there will be lots more information to come!

We were very sad during these last weeks because of the deaths of Jeanne (Friend of the House),  and His Royal Highness Titus Scipio Germanicus of Aethelmearc, among others, and three House members moved very far away.

We were very happy during these last weeks because we got to spend time with Clarisse (Friend of the House), got to see the pictures and hear of the knighting of Helga in West Kingdom, and got to talk to members of the Starfollower Consort about coming out here for our Winter Feast. Amor and Gogor checked in and told us about projects and we’ve talked to three new people!

A camera in a spear head!

There were a number of events, none of which house members attended, but there are pictures from Egil’s, Investiture, and An Tir/ West War and we had a *great* display for the Waldport Beachcomber Days! We’ve actually been asked to do it again, next year, and to be in the parade.

There were three potlucks (two House and one Tymberhavene) that folks attended and of cookery were: tvarog, soup from greens, chive fritters, candied violets, cheese dumplings, lentils, rose sugar, layered strawberry preserve, beef potroast, pork roast, borscht, kolace, rye and wheat breads, Seamus’ wonderful soup, and carrot, egg, turnip, parsnip, asparagus, bean and strawberry pickles! Gogor and Anja were working through some cookbooks and finding strawberry recipes, meat pies, a chicken subtlety, another rabbit pie recipe and more cookbook links!

The Herb Bunch and our cooks were drying herbs for cooking, harvesting greens, cow parsnip for dye, hops for beer or sleep pillows and ferns, and starting roses, geraniums and succulents. A Hedeby bag frame was created and some spoons finished, plus Amor showed off his obsidian knapping and the tools for it.  Anja’s pouch project got finished, the blackworked shirts were worn and a page created about them, a ball got stitched along with some baby things and a lovely (mudane) dress that Isabeau did.

…and there are lots and lots of links and music and funnies in the various reports!

August’s potluck is scheduled for 8/19 and mostly meetings are going on as scheduled.

This month (these are standard meeting times) 

  • Herb Bunch – At Ancient Light, Saturdays, 11am-1pm
  • Sewing Time – At Ancient Light, Saturdays, 3-5pm
  • Project Day – At Ancient Light, Sundays, Noon to 6pm

House Capuchin Activities from 4-16 through 5-20-18

House Capuchin Shield2For most of us this was a quiet month. We have a couple of new people playing with us, (Nick, Taylor and baby Rosie) who will soon be gone again, since family circumstances are  taking them elsewhere. The tourist season is ramping up and that means that Anja and Loren are getting busier and busier. Isabeau has a mundane sewing commission that is eating her time and job things are getting Amy and Sasha. Jay tried to make it to the potluck, had a ride and all, and then wham, it fell apart on him again. We didn’t hear much from the farther away members this month, but tourney season is starting.

Several of us got to the get-together that the Tanista of the Summits had and we got some fun photos of the Maypole and projects!

Finished!

A pair of baby shoes, some embroidered pouches and a tinkle loom went out this month, and more bits and pieces landed in the largesse drawer.

…and we ended up with a tasty potluck feast!

So far no one has said whether they’re going to make any of the events in the Summits this month. A couple of us are hoping for Investiture and An Tir/West war, but we’ll see what happens.

House Reports through 4-15-18

House Capuchin Shield2We’re on the new schedule for posting, so this is a little early. We’re going to be trying to have these notes come out after the monthly potluck, regularly. Every week the reports post to the House Page and the Summits group on Facebook. You can always check back here for the newest information!

embroidery front

We’ve been doing a lot of work on the structure of the House and the various meetings and activities. As everyone has scattered to the 4 winds and interests have changed it’s gotten hard to get info through, so a lot of what you’re seeing is going to be mostly Loren and Anja and the things that they’re up to. We’ll post other things as they come in!

House Capuchin News 3-27-18

House Capuchin Shield2You might have noticed that House Capuchin is going through a bunch of changes. We’re making a major change to the way our weekly reports show up as of this past week. They’re still going to be posted each week to House Capuchin and to the Summits group, but otherwise there will be a monthly post to each of the groups where we’ve been posting weekly with links to the weekly reports. There’ve been a few complaints, so this will help to solve the “clutter” problem, while still leaving things

Clockwise from top left: spoon bags, breads, nuts and waxed covers, mini-pies, tvarog, pickled red cabbage, mushroom and onion pickle, white cabbage pickle, potted cheese, bacon/blue butter, and then up the centerm going right from there: pickled onions, pickled carrots, wine-pickled mushrooms.

accessible.

We haven’t done a post here since 12th Night, mostly because our House Feast ate pretty much all of our time and attention during late January into February and since we’re been recuperating. 🙂

Also, the House is going through a transition phase. Over the last few years the active members have dwindled since many have had to move to the Valley for work, and the members that *are* in the area, mostly have businesses or jobs that keep us all pretty busy. So we had to decide whether to keep the House going (the answer was emphatically, “Yes!”), the newsletter/report (also emphatically, “Yes!”). We’re keeping the Sunday Project Day and the 3rd Sunday Potluck, but what to do about the meetings that happen during the week? Anja does the Herbs and Sewing workshops on Saturdays and since they’re also attended by mundanes those are being kept. The other meetings have been dropped until or unless we have more active people to host them.

Corned beef, serving

We’re not sure about next year’s Winter Feast, at the moment, although we have a ‘crat and feast’crat, it looks like. Hopefully the next Virtual Project Day will pick people up so we can discuss it. VPD is scheduled for the morning of 4/15. Yes, that’s Potluck Day.

Stitched up, front

Some of us might get to All Fool’s and Adiantum’s Birthday Bash this month. We’re hoping, at least, and various projects are continuing on a personal level, from lucet cords to garb to food experiments. Take a look at the reports for details!

12th NIght – 1-10-18

House Capuchin Shield2The holidays are past, but this weekend was 12th Night! Are you excited? None of us were able to go, since it’s too far, but we’re making plans for next year in Three Mountains and the following in Adiantum! There are a few pix in this week’s report of various folks that we know from the Summits.

Ready to put by.

Next month is House Capuchin’s Winter Feast. This is our big event of the year and if you’ve been following our reports over the last number of months, you’ve seen some of the experiments that we’ve been doing to get ready and that’s really what we’re working on this month.

Everyone is invited, but the seating in the hall is limited and we’re asking that folks let us know a bit ahead of time (2/8/18) that you want to come, so we can make sure there’s enough food for everyone. Here is the invite… and you’re welcome to print it and pass it on!

This month (these are standard meeting times) 

  • Sewing Time – At Ancient Light, Thursdays, 5-7pm
  • Herb Bunch – At Ancient Light, Saturdays, 11am-1pm
  • Project Day – At Ancient Light, Sundays, Noon to 5pm
  • Cheese and Wine is an occasional meeting. Watch our Facebook group for notices!
