Early in the day Anja was carving on the needlecases again, but little progress happened with those this week. She’s also pecking away at the wax tablet project and the inkle looms are drilled and just waiting for the dowels to be cut for them and all the sanding that needs to be finished.
Anja got her stained headcloth taken apart, the trims off and unfolded to make a pattern for a new one and then got that cut, late in the day. Else we were all cooking!
After we ate there were games being played for a bit, and we learned the steps for “Single Bransle” …but the main part of the day was the feast!
Darioles of elk with apples, pecans and raisins
Italian seasoning bread and regular bread
Savory Scalded Milk Cheese
Pickles of divers sorts
Cucumbers in sour cream and dill
Cream vegetable soup with shrimp
…and embroidery…and we started the lavendar sachets (the next largesse set)
….and we talked and talked and talked about various projects and told stories and all. ….and were totally wiped out heading home with various food parcels, since we tend to share things all ’round!
