House Capuchin Shield2Modern cameras are frustrating things when they don’t work or break or won’t take pictures… That’s why so few pictures below. The backup camera quit on Thursday! But embroidery happened, planning on a couple of new projects got started, and a bunch of foodstuffs went to All Fool’s in Corvaria!

This coming Sunday is our Virtual Project Day and Potluck! The idea is to post pictures and descriptions of project progress and foods that you’re making this week, since we can’t all get together. Anyone who can actually get to Project Day with skin on (and hopefully some clothing over that. 🙂 ) will get treated to a pork roast, some kind of vegetable, a pottage and a plum babovka of the style that Anja has learned is more period than what she’s been making.

  • 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
  • Next Potluck – 4/15

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:

Cookery – This week focused on cookery. Anja had still been hoping to go to All Fool’s, but the plans all fell through. The food was going to go, even if she couldn’t, though, since it’s things like the pickles that weren’t going to keep much longer.

On Monday the tvarog got cooked, hung overnight and was salted and spiced on Tuesday. The pickled eggs were done on Tuesday, so they got divided up and ours got added horseradish! She spent a good while trying to work out what was where, so’s to get an inventory of what was going to the person running the event.

Going to All Fool’s

  • Čočky – Lentils
  • Small jar huckleberry jam
  • Large jar cabbage pickle
  • Pickled duck eggs, dozen
  • Part quart Mixed veg pickle (carrot, turnip, etc)
  • Bean pickle
  • Pickled mushrooms
  • Pt Pickled walnuts
  • 2-4 onions Large pickled onions for garnish (yes, they’re yummy to eat, too!)
  • pt pickled cocktail onions (maybe ½ full)
  • Extra jar of pieces and big onions.
  • 2 cups Kmininy tvarog (caraway cheese)
  • 2-4 Brined apples
  • cup blackberry jam
  • Cabbage Rolls
  • Onion Herb Butter
  • Babovka (coffee cake)
  • Kolacky (buns)

…and of course, it had to get to Coos Bay for starters…. so on Friday afternoon Tempus took a drive. …and then the cooler went with Seamus and Alexander… and the tvarog got compliments. …and I’m just adding to the “largesse” numbers, the number of dishes, not servings.

Setting up some more embroideries.

Sewing – Anja is still working on pouches. She finished stitching up a couple more and then started an embroidery.

Herb Bunch – Carrots and radishes got planted and hairy bittercress harvested. It looks like none of the gourds took. 😦

Project Day – Anja worked on her embroidery to start, did a little sewing and did some pictures. We took a break in the early afternoon for lunch and then got back to it. Amy came in very late and we talked for awhile. Anja and Loren started plotting another set of things for Loren to cut out on the jigsaw, as well. They want some Hedeby-style bags and he’s working on a small inkle loom.

Miscellaneous pix – Anja’s hunting houpellande pix again…

Music – AncientFM this week.
