House Capuchin Shield2Eclipsealypse-that-wasn’t cancelled a lot of our get-togethers this week, but things kept getting done, anyway. Project Day was virtual.

Meetings are at regular times this week, except for Thursday’s Sewing night, which is cancelled because Anja and Loren will be at Arthur’s (their son) , wedding that night! Wearing garb, btw….. Hopefully there will be pix.

Cheese and Wine Workshop – Monday 8/14 – We made another batch of schiz, but Anja got distracted at a crucial moment and it didn’t turn out quite like the rest because it got too hot, going up to 110F before adding the rennet. The curd was very tiny, almost like ricotta, but we packed it into molds, re-cooked the whey, *got* some ricotta, and then the rest of the whey became a chowder. Few pix. We’ve taken lots before!

Early Week – Anja had a lot of pincushion cutting to do, so that happened on Monday and she started stitching some of the new shapes that night.


Project Day – Virtual! – Isabeau has gotten her tunic hemmed and is working on the neckline. She’s also been doing a snood and wants to try making some cute cup covers. Loren spent some time sanding the interior of a Russian cup that we got a couple of months back that has been used for something green and not re-finished. Anja’s doing pincushions. Gudrun and Casey found a mortar and pestle that they’re drooling over.

Sport of Kings pix – We got thanked for the prizes that went to Sport of Kings and for the largesse.
