It’s been another quiet week with steady progress on projects and then we ended up with some cookery on Sunday. Various members checked in during the week.

Big News from the Principality of the Summits! Seamus O’Caellaigh (Prince #2) says: Now that they have been awarded I am so excited to show the newest award in the Summits. The Order of the Silver Crucible is for those that excel at and promote Science and Research within our lands. The first five members are Antonia Crivelli, David de Rosier-Blanc, Hrothric of Fenwald, Marya Kargashina and Vesta Antonia Aurelia. So often Science and Research fades into the background when there are amazing arts to see. These five all push what we know about period sciences and Research and help to make science sexy!!”Meetings at the regular times this week.

Early Week – Cleaning up started the week and a little embroidery by Anja. Tempus keeps pecking away at that 2nd tinkle loom, too.

Cookery – Got another tvarog finished and there are pix of that and the other things on Sunday, below.

Sewing – …during the week it was mostly keeping on with embroidery for the various pouches, but Thursday evening Anja got a few of them sewn and ready for frames. By Saturday another was ready to be sewn.

Herb Bunch – Not much this week, just keeping on with tending the various plants. We have some regrown veg that are ready to “soup”. We harvested a bunch of herbs on Sunday and made fritters and candied some violets, as well.

Project Day – …started a touch late, but Anja was late from harvesting a bunch of herbs and violets. Pictures happened first, so that we were caught up from the week (and the herb pix landed above…cooking of them, below.)

Anja had harvested a bunch of violets in the morning and, using the same method as the candied borage flowers, got the violets going. Here is the report with the candied borage flower pix and recipe – Loren got her all the equipment and found her another brush…by going out and buying one!

Greens got chopped and biscuit/fritter makings & recipe found. …and then we had to track down the mixer and parts. 🙂 so it was very late in the day when that got going, finally. It all turned out really tasty.
