It was a fairly quiet week as far as SCA stuff goes, although Loren and Anja are moving which is eating all of their spare time.
Try 2 on the Balls class is this coming Sunday! Virtual Project Day that day will be mostly Loren, although Anja may get a look-in.
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!
When will we be able to do these in person? We’ll probably keep right on with the virtual ones side-by-side with the actual.
- Herb Bunch – At Ancient Light, Saturdays, 11am-1pm
- Sewing Time – At Ancient Light, Saturdays, 3-5pm

The Contessa Answers All: Rhythm in Bassadanza – Rachel Lorenz – The Creative Contessa explains how to find the rhythm in bassadanza/basse danse music and whether or not you can dance such dances to any bassadanza tune.
Classes – Missed out this week. We’ll add a class post at some point over the next several days, and then be caught up next week.
Early Week – Anja is still deep in marzipan research.
Cookery – Lots happened on Sunday, almost none for the rest of the week. Write-up on Project Day page.
Sewing – Anja found a fascinating little box that holds sewing supplies. It’s a pyramid that opens up like an etui and holds needles and scissors and such. She’s working out a pattern for one. She’s still working on the last scissor case and the needlebook. Sunday was all about a lined pouch.

Sundials, etc. – Getting ‘et by the move.
Herb Bunch – Plants being moved and tended.
Project Day – Started with an unexpected visit from a House member who lives up in Washington and we haven’t seen for most of a decade! Kaleb’s doing well, living with girlfriend, etc. He’s been working pretty hard and coordinating schedules and funds is a problem, with school, work, etc.
Arlys and Rosamunde checked in.
Anja and Loren started some cookery. First was chicken to have poached meat and broth. Next was Hrudka, since it was Easter, finally a soup was started with chicken broth and a bunch of the dried vegetables from last fall. This was an experiment to figure out how much broth was needed for the dried stuff and also what it would taste like. More pix will be added when the dishes are finished.
Mushrooms – We get a special blend of dried mushrooms from a local restaurant supply. They’re not as useable as they might be for our purposes being whole slices, so they need to be run through the food processor and sifted.
