This week is Potluck, so we’ll be concentrating more on food things. We have a duck that we might get a chance to try to do something with and there’s an interesting leek and pork dish, also.
All meetings are on hold for the moment, although Project Day and the Monthly Potluck are being held in the Virtual Realm. We’re also doing mini-potlucks, just Anja & Loren and one other “pod” at a time. Let us know if you’re interested!
When will we be able to do these in person? We’ll probably keep right on with the virtual ones side-by-side with the actual.
- 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

Early Week – Not much going on. Moving plants to home and continuing on embroidery. Started a ball.
Cookery – Starting to think about potluck. We want to do the duck and the rique-manger looks promising.
Sewing – Started on a ball, finished the seam ripper case, but still needed pictures.
Dress Historian Recreates Margaret Tudor’s French Hoods – The Welsh Viking – The famous Tudor era French Hood is frequently misunderstood and a challenge for new and experienced costumers alike. Thankfully, we have the amazing, knowledgeable dress historian and historical costume maker Perin from Isabel Northwode Costumes to teach us all about them! Join us for this special edition as she teaches us how these wonderful and mysterious garments developed from earlier medieval hoods, how they could have been made, and why they’re a much easier costuming project than you might have thought – all by looking at new and exciting historical resources from Renaissance Scotland! Dig out your silk velvet and your finest linen (or a tea towel) and get ready!
Herb Bunch – Gradually getting the plants moved an set up.
Before I even got there!
Helen Louise was working on a summer blouse. >>>
Arlys – “Posting early because kids coming later. Currently playing around with one of the emblems from the Oxburgh hangings. This involves some some conjecture and reconstruction, owing to degradation. Also known as playing with colored pencils.”
“I’m working on reconstructing a pattern from one of the Oxburgh Hangings. Parts of this particular one are degraded, so it’s an interesting challenge. Hooray for colored pencils and erasers! One of the really neat things about this particular one is that you can see how Mary did the cruciform edging.”
Anja got a very bad photo of her embroidery stuff and then pulled out the sewing project (buttons on a mundane dress.)
She also posted earlier, “I’m working on a black wool hooded mantel with rectangular construction. Sewing the seams with gray wool yarn/thread. I’ll post a picture later today. If I can find a finer darker red, I’ll embellish it.”
Gudrun (edited and used with permission) – “I’d join the project day thing, but I’m mucking about with my printer to get everything perfect before I start making some neat prints that could be displayed with SCA stuffs. I’ve been making calibration cubes with a white PLA lol. I’m -.1-.2mm off on most sides though. 20mm cube lol.
The translation is a bit off, but it’s followable.
Rique-Manger – France, XIV century– 1 apple– 2 eggs– 1 tablespoon butter– 1/4 tbsp powder fine *– a pinch of saffronWe peel the apple and cut it into a cube or slices, throw it into the pan, water it with a small amount of water and cook it for a few minutes until the fruit softens slightly, we are draining. (I didn’t pour water, but I poured it into a cup, added a little honey and that way I received an addition to the dish in the form of a delicious compote. ))We roast apples for a while in the pan to get rid of the leftover water, add butter and fine powder and fry for a few more minutes for the fruits to take root. We stick eggs, add saffron and mix the whole thing until the proteins are cut.Serving warm, with bread.Today we have a guest at the Dwarf’s cooks by AgnieszkaENJOY!!!* powder fine: 3 tablespoons ginger, 2 tablespoons sugar, 1 tablespoon cinnamon, 1 teaspoon cloves, 1 teaspoon paradise grain (aframon can be replaced with pepper, just remember this one is less smoking)
