Life gets interesting, sometimes, and what takes a *lot* of time, doesn’t show up. That’s this week, all over. We did have the regular meeting times, but not many showed up. Plants and sorting out starts and harvest was the most of the work this week! …but there are lots of links!
This coming week all meetings will happen on time, even though Anja and Loren won’t be there on Sunday, which is why the report will be late.
- 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
- Cheese and Wine happens irregularly, usually announced with little notice on our Facebook group.
- Next Potluck – 10/20, 11/17, 12/15, 1/19/20
- Winter Feast Date is 2/16/20, Date may change! Theme German Renaissance

Early Week – Monday was all clean-up and write day. On Wednesday several pieces of display equipment got picked up from Sabrina for Anja and Loren’s shop, one of which is a set of glass shelves that the Herb Bunch is going to use for indoor plants. We’ll have a spot to put our starts and small plants where they won’t get mixed in with stuff that’s for sale.
Cookery – We were eating up leftovers during the week, as well as taking “care packages” to James and Sasha on Friday.
Sewing – The sewing kit is packed up and ready to mail, just waiting on an address…. Very little other sewing happened this week, other than a start on a new snip sheath.
Sundials, etc. – Was sanding heart-shaped, wooden boxes…. These will be partly lined for small sewing kits, with pincushions and some tools added.
Herb Bunch – Workshop time was all prep of the dried harvest and bagging some that was ready. The big push this week was the glass shelves that our keepers, starts and the “mothers” that we’re making starts from will live on. We had to fetch the glass unit, move things that were in the way (including a bunch of plants), build a support, move it in and then start loading it with the plants that will live there. Anja did a lot of tending while this was going on, as plants got shifted around. This week will be re-potting starts and getting the “for sale” ones sorted from the keepers, and then we’ll make more starts!
Project Day – Went into the glass shelves, mostly, although Loren worked on sanding and Anja embroidery during the day. (pix above) Well, have pix next week of the plant shelves.

National Library showcasing rare manuscripts from age of Wenceslas IV
The Czech National Library is displaying six rare historical manuscripts from the turn of the 14th and 15th centuries to mark the 600th anniversary of the death of King Wenceslas IV.
The manuscripts, normally kept in the library vault, will be on display at Prague’s Klementinum on Friday and Saturday only.
Wenceslas IV had amassed a huge collection of books with the aim of establishing a library to rival those of royals in France. But it is thought to have either been stolen or destroyed by Hussites.
