House Capuchin Shield2We had a productive week, with pouches and pincushions and needles getting steadily finished. Anja never did find a ride to War in the Trees, but it turned into Water Ballet in the Trees (according to Geoffrey the Rogue) and just a very, very soggy event, with lots of folks heading home early and having to dry things out.

Tuesday Anja and Loren are heading in to Couer de Val to drop off the stick horses so they’ll get to Investiture, since Anja has no ride to that. We’re going to try again on Wednesday for Cheese and then the rest of the weekly meetings will go on as usual.

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:

Early Week – …started with Anja finishing cutting out the fabrics for the project that she did the embroidery for last week. It’s eventually going to be one of her embroidery patterns from Mab’s Creations, but this version is going for an SCA gift exchange. (pix below) She also worked on a pouch that got started awhile back. Loren kept working on needles and finished one on Tuesday.

Cheese and Wine Workshop – …was supposed to happen Wednesday evening, but it got later and later and no one showed up, so Loren and Anja decided to skip it to next week.

Sewing Time – …was Anja, Loren and Amy. Amy started a pincushion. Anja is still sewing things up, mostly working on her apron, but also on a pouch that was driving her mad. It’s done now, so she can go back to the normal level of insanity…

Then on Saturday it was time to make pouches. Anja worked on a new blackwork pattern in between sorting out the pouch-making process. We really whomped through a lot. We’ve got some pouches to block-print again!

Project Day

Anja started the day finished up the pouches that got started on Sunday. Loren finished one needle and started another. Then Stella got there and we got her sunhat be-ribboned so she wouldn’t scorch in the sun, losing it to the local wind. Anja got some measurements for her so she could use the smock generator. After that we all sat and talked and worked for quite a while, working on pincushions and pouches and bone needles. The pouches got finished right at the end of the day when Amy got there.
