…and guess who was dork enough not to realize that I hadn’t hit, “publish”, yet…. until late Monday evening! Oops…..

House Capuchin Shield2Another quiet week for most of us, although we have friends at various events and even out on the firelines! We mostly continued with various projects this week, and are making some progress both on setting up the feast venue and the cookbook. Yes, Sadb got hurt (see below). We’re hoping that she will heal well.

Early Week – Last week’s newsletter didn’t go out until Monday afternoon because of the number of pictures that Anja was dealing with (not all in our newsletter). During the early week we were worrying about our brothers and sisters in Brookings and down in Texas….fire and water… wow….and by the end of the week the air quality, even out here, was deteriorating again.

There’s a new person in Lincoln City who may come play with us, Tatiana the midwife. Several of us got to chat back and forth with her on Facebook.

Sadb – Some of you know that Sadb, Anja’s student from Glyn Dywn, was in an accident where someone ran a red light. She was home mid-week after surgery on her ankle.

Sewing Time – Thursday – Amy and Anja worked on projects… a sideless surcoat and pincushions. Anja managed another emery and got some dimples into otherwise finished pincushions, plus got some sewn and turned and ready for filling. Loren puttered around finding and putting together some animals for Sasha to sand, since he was going to drop them off in the early evening. …and Sash got back to us right away that he had them and was getting to work.

Sewing Time – Saturday – Didn’t happen…

Herb Bunch – …was all on processing mint, although several bits and pieces went into the drying baskets. We have that huge bundle from Rafaella’s that we’re still working through. During the week we finally got pix of the tomatillo plants. These probably didn’t make it to Europe in period, although it’s possible that one of the descriptions of a tomato could be a tomatillo instead. They’re yummy, though, and we worked on transplanting during an herbs workshop a few weeks ago, which is a technique that’s used for a lot of things!

Project Day

We started with finding bits and pieces of things for the various projects. While a couple of Anja’s friends showed up she did some sewing, working on emery bags. Loren ended up working on the Tinkle loom and Anja kept going on her pincushions, but she’s out of pincushion filling, so the ones getting done were tiny emery bags.

Anja had been grabbing pix from the An Tir Virtual Feed and we watched the finals, live, after Amy got there! …and then more sewing and sanding happened.

September Crown Pix – The finals ran at 4:10pm, Duke Ulfr vs Count Savaric – All Hail the Heirs, Savaric and Dalla! The An Tir Events – Virtual Feed ran the finals live.

A few Pix from Pennsic – ...I caught some of these on a friend’s timeline, but have no idea how to get permission for use….
