House Capuchin Shield2That was a fun Ithra! Loren and Anja didn’t have all that much time this week because of the big tourist weekend, but they tried. Things should start easing up, though, as September rolls on.

There are a bunch of class links, although the Ithra ones aren’t up, yet. There are some fun recipe videos plus a bunch of other links and an interesting one on brewing mead. We didn’t get that much done, but we’re working on it.

Back so you can see the pattern

Working on scrolls again today. This one is a Fury of Granite Mountain, for heavy fighters in my Barony. May have more later, letting paint/ink dry before continuing with others. Usually I do the calligraphy too, but at the moment we have a Vicar/Vicaress and our new Baron/Baroness are stepping up next weekend so just blanks for now.Thank you…. – Peggy Vlach

This is from the comments on the Facebook group. “Project Day is starting. I’m taking this class. Plagues of Europe, …tech issues, blah… Got some plant stuff done. …Interesting idea for cheese rennet…. sorrel, so I cut some and Loren’s washing it. Gonna use up another gallon of milk. … Ok, we’re done for the day. Isobel and Coleman are here and we’re gonna visit. If you’ve got any more pictures, post ’em!”
