House Capuchin Shield2Holiday weeks inevitably play merry hob with getting other things done! We still aren’t quite finished with the cleanup from Thursday! …not to mention leftovers. Hoping that you all had a good Thanksgiving! 

We’re moving into the holiday season at Anja and Loren’s shop. This year has been so odd, we’re not sure what will and won’t work as far as projects. 

All meetings are on hold for the moment, although Project Day and the Monthly Potluck are being held in the Virtual Realm. We’re also doing mini-potlucks, just Anja & Loren and one other “pod” at a time. Let us know if you’re interested!

  • 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 happens irregularly, usually announced with little notice on our Facebook group.
  • Next Virtual Potluck – 12/20
  • Next Winter Feast tentative Date is 2/15/21, Probably not being held….

Here is the direct Portfolio link which has all the past Project Day reports and various projects, original here:  and new one here: and number three is here:

Misc – Corrie Bergeron  is with Richard S. Mandel – 11/24/20

A friend had a medical issue at an event, so a couple of other friends took him to the ER. The physicians poked, prodded, and administered their potions with nary a word about the dress of their patient and his attendants.

When they cleared him to leave, he gave the staff a sweeping bow, saying, “I thank you for your excellent care. We shall now return to our own timeline.”

Early Week – Was all prep for Thanksgiving. 

Cookery – I didn’t take pictures because we didn’t use any of the period recipes! We did start talking about doing a cookbook of the recipes that weren’t “feastable” for whatever reason…. ones that we’ve done for personal use or potlucks. …and realized we really need a listing of *all* the recipes we’ve done, so that was what Anja worked on this week. 

Tasting History – What Did Medieval Peasants Eat?

Fogones en la Historia – Ayunar o comer trucha – Trout Soup

Lynne Fairchild – St. Hildegard’s Joy and Happy Cookies | 12th Century Recipe | SCA Baking

The Tudor Travel Guide – A Tudor Christmas Recipe: Venison Pie

Sewing – Working on the pincushions and trying to figure out what to use for the pouch frame. I had a lovely scrap of white velvet that would look awesome, but can I find it? <sigh> So I ordered some samples of velvets/velours to see which might work. 

Sundials, etc. – Found some old projects and got them sorted in with the rest. 

Herb Bunch – Tending and watering this week. 

Project Day – Anja was online with the event pages open, working on embroidery. No one showed up until later in the evening. There were also some comments on a question about projects. 

Arlys – It turned into a cleaning day….

Claire – I meant to walk the dog (I did but got distracted supervising my rather short neighbor hang her Christmas lights). The leaves in the back yard did get raked. Bread for steak dinner is baking and I’ve managed a few more stitches on the shawl my MIL is getting for Christmas (I think it will be done in time, but I have permission to be late).

Isabeau – Christmas stockings for a customer
