House Capuchin Shield2a-letter-motifA lot of this week was cleaning up and then talking over new stuff. Anja is hard at work on her A&S Championship stuff, which is being held this next week. The only workshop this week is going to be Sewing Night, because Marcus, Anja, and Loren are going to Summits BA&S as are Anja’s Laurel (Arlys), Sadb and maybe Isabeau! Gogor and Anja came up with the idea of next year’s feast being Slavic Foods and that’s being kicked around. We also talked over what worked and didn’t with this past feast and tried to work out how to do it better next time.

carver-motifEarly Week – It took until Tuesday evening to get last week’s report out. Lots of pictures and the cookbook and stuff like that….. Sadb stayed over Sunday night so she and Anja could get some time to talk projects and how-to’s and what’s-the-next-step things on Monday before she headed home. Loren was doing laundry and dishes and there was the usual pick-up-and-put-away of all the things. That was pretty well finished by Wednesday, though, and he picked up tables and chairs Tuesday evening. Everyone is finally set up with feast gear, so the next pile will be making the “loaner” sets with gameboards along with some feast gear bags for House members.

Blog work continued, finishing up the potluck foods listings for 2 and 3 and then reformatting blog1.


021617-pincSewing Time – …. was Amy and Anja, mostly just talking, blue-houp-ladybut a couple of pincushions got stuffed, finished and put by. (…although, other than this one, your scribe doesn’t know which those are, so no pix!)



Herb Bunch – ….was busy this week. The spring herbs are starting, so pix were taken and ID’s listed. Eggshell Fertilizer for bulbs was made. Plantain Oil for the ointment was started and Garlic Butter made.
