House Capuchin Shield2This week went sideways since Anja got sick and she runs most of the workshops. A few things happened, anyway and Project Day was normal. Corvaria did the Bend Christmas Parade, which is something we’ve talked about here, but have never managed to do.

Hopefully, this coming week everything will be at the


normal times. None of us are going to get to Investiture. 😦 so we’ll just have look for pictures!

Early Week

That “Tablero de Cheeses” thing from last week kept mutating. Dunno if we’re actually going to make one or not, but it’s fun to contemplate. Estella dropped off a basket and some bottles that will help with the Herbs Workshop stuff. …and then things went sideways, since Anja went down sick and she runs more of the workshops during the week. We didn’t try any cookery because she wasn’t sure how contagious she might be, either.

Herb Bunch – The workshop didn’t happen this week, but that doesn’t mean that herbs didn’t… 🙂 Anja was nabbing pictures and this interesting lichen showed up.

Here’s a link to a Wikipedia article on them.

…and a couple more pictures.

Project Day – Anja was back at the shop on this day, so she went to work on various projects while Loren was working on the Tinkle Loom. The pouch got done first. It had been embroidered and cut previously, but a new lining needed to be found since the first was mis-cut, then after it was stitched up and trimmed, the lining needed to be blind-stitched closed, then cords made, threaded and weighted.

Tinkle Loom

Anja finally got started on some more pouches using some of the cool trim we were gifted and a bit of the Summits trim.

…and we ended with starting to pack largesse for next weekend.

Bend Christmas Parade – Apparently it was *very* chilly! Pix by Jennifer Smith and Victoria Brumley.


This is so cute! It’s another Townsend’s recipe video and it’s the same technique as our candied borage flowers.
