House Capuchin Winter Feast – 2/19/23 – Come join us for a Norse Feast (Viking era)! We’ve been researching for two years, now, because of the virus, so you can expect some good food and fun! The site is open from noon to 8pm, although we’ll be there from 8am to midnight or so. If you’re there outside of the event times, you’ll likely be put to work. 🙂 We’re planning a couple of classes, music, stories and possibly some dance as well as food all day and the feast proper starts at 5pm. Bring your feast gear and some containers to take leftovers home with you, along with the “travel food” that we usually plan as the last course of the feast. This is a free event, although there’s a donation can by the front door to help defray the costs.

Dance Vids – Basse Danse – Les Baladins de Céret

Danza del oso 2017 – Mariostell 99

Classes – Adiantum’s A&S night was the 2nd session of shoes for the pilgrimage.

Crusading in the Baltic with the Teutonic Knights – Medievalists – What did Baltic crusaders feel when fighting on the battlefield? Or, more precisely, what were they supposed to feel, according to chroniclers? In this episode of the Medieval Grad Podcast, Lucie talks with Patrick Eickman, who studies the Baltic crusades through the fascinating lens of the history of emotions.

Early Week – As usual, a lot was clean-up, but Anja also did some writing and worked on getting the planning for the feast hall taken care of.

Tuesday evening was Adiantum’s A&S on making bag shoes. Pilgrimage stuff came up evey day for the rest of the week.

Cookery – We got a lot of the greens into the main freezer, offloading the one at home, which was thoroughly overstuffed. We also have 3 more boxes of the venison stew in there and some broths.

Sewing – Anja finally managed to sort her project boxes out of the display stuffs and get them home and put away. One more round of unpacking….

The workshop was taken up with a ‘dane who wanted to learn the basic embroidery stitches.

What the heck is a “Cyclas?” My One-Day (Medieval) Make – Opus Elenae – IN WHICH our intrepid recreatrix takes up the challenge to make a garment in Just One Day! In this case, it’s a Cyclas, an early 14th century sideless surcoat (you may remember me talking about them in last week’s CoCoVid capsule wardrobe video). Join me as I drink too much tea, struggle with my camera focus, pet my cat, and sew like there’s no tomorrow!

Sundials, etc. – 

Blacksmithing The MOST Underrated Tool In My Toolbox – 18th Century Forge – Townsends – Making dividers – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dTdffziW0vs

Herb Bunch – 

Farmer’s Market – The farm that’s been there all summer, well, that was their last time this year. I got grapes, a tomato, a couple of onions and blueberries. I also picked up onions from the other farm. I was hoping for Jerusalem artichokes. Maybe next week.

Herbs in the Garden – Mostly I sorted stuff around and weeded the mint, but I had a kiddo stop by with her mom and she wanted to know the names of everything. I tossed the old dahlia tubers under the porch, so I could use the pot they were in, but pulled out two that had shoots and planted those.

Later in the week, I was in the garden one morning, planting scallion, parsnip and leek ends and I showed her how to do it, when she stopped by and talked about why. The next morning the mom showed up and asked, apparently the kid garbled the idea. 🙂

Project Day – Anja worked on the report for the week, finding links, and also fought with an embroidery pattern for awhile. No one else spoke up during the day. She and Loren got the frozen greens into the big freezer and he got a lot of ice out of it.

Peggy – No pictures from me this week either. Patched two pairs of my son’s work pants so they will last a bit longer. And back to work on scrolls, I have one for my Barony and two for Kingdom in the works at the moment. Will be concentrating more on scrolls for my kingdom since we have Coronation coming up soon.

Isabeau – I’ve been working on a shirt that will make its way to PA… I have 2 more hand sewn grommet holes to put in….

Feast Planning – Worked on the hall this week. A few things have changed. We have to pay up front for the hall to reserve the day. The papers are ready, just waiting on money.

Miscellaneous pix


The wind blows out of the west – Passamezzo – An anonymous round about sailors, popular in the 16th and 17th Centuries.
Sung by Eleanor Cramer, Richard de Winter, Robin Jeffrey, Alison Kinder, Tamsin Lewis and Peter Willcock
The song is found in a number of contemporary sources: The Lant Roll (GB Ckc1), 1580; Thomas Ravenscroft’s Pammelia, 1609; David Melville’s ‘Ane buick off roundells’, 1612

The Wind blows out of the west thou gentle Mariner a,
look to the luff well, beware the lee still,
for deadly rocks doe now appear a,
look to thy tack, let bowline go slack,
so shall we scape them and go clear.
Tarra tan tarra stir well thy course, sirrah,
the wind waxeth large, the sheets doe thou veer,
go wash the can quickly boy, give us some beer
I’ll drink thee I’ll brinks thee my mates, what cheer?

But to remind us, there are the dhows of the Persian Gulf and the Indian Ocean, carrying cargo over waters that witnessed the birth of sea trade. Dhows helped spread Islam throughout the world, turning the Arabs into a major political force. The principal link in the lucrative trade between East and West also made Arab merchants a fortune.
