Week through 6-14-15 Feast

House Capuchin Shield2

W Letter motifWe had a great week and it really finished up with a bang! …or a potluck… which is the same thing. ūüôā

This coming week there’s no Metal Night (or at least not at Marcus’). Loren will probably continue working on his projects, but at home.

Sewing Night is going to be taken over with tagging largesse. We’ve got several sets going out in the next few weeks. We’re hoping that the Herb Bunch will be doing either lip balms or wood butters. We’ll have to see.

Marcus is going to Investiture and taking a box of goodies with him.

Project Day….well, we’ll be working on the projects that need to be done for AnTir/West War and Coronation!

Metal Night

CHG-lNVUUAAapg6“So armor night was getting little further along. We finished the basic pattern of the armor, and we’re beginning the process for getting it wearable. It was decided that four fabric strips will run vertically down the armor, and belt can be laced through those straps so that the armor will fasten closed to the body. Then Loren and myself spent a significant amount of time shooting at bulls”. – Marcus

Sewing Time

….started in the afternoon with Anja making waxed linen pieces for largesse. One set was cup covers and a second was for more general wrapping. a 3rd was intended to make a set for Marcus of the same fabric as his tunic, but that didn’t work quite as well as she had hoped. There’s a page here: http://wp.me/p4yKTJ-1e3 of the pictures from the project, but it’s not finished, yet.

Loren worked on needles and then a wooden toy. Marcus stitched on his tunic. Anja got two napkins hemmed when the linen pieces were done.

Making the Pear Patina

061315 HerbsHerb Bunch mostly processed herbs this week. We don’t have the wood butter tins and couldn’t find the lip balm containers, so we just went with drying/cleaning/processing packing of thrift, fleabane, rosemary, violets, clover, rosemary, buttercups and mugwort ¬†…and then the rest of the day Anja was sewing and Loren was making needles.

Project Day

rabbit motifAnja started her day sorting beads after being up during the night cooking the rabbit for the pies. Loren helped her clean up the workroom and then headed back to the house to find feast gear and relevant foods. Marcus was working on his pear patina.

LadyDogHoup motifWhen food arrived we got the table set and started. By 3 the pies were in and Marcus was at the store, then Rowan arrived. Skuli and Sondis got there after a bit (Couer de Val) and then past 5, Their Excellencies Tryggr and Temperence Trewelove arrived. Finally, after having had to argue with an oven that wasn’t coming up to temperature, Loren got back with the pies and we sat down to eat.

manHoup motifAfter some great conversation and good food we picked up a bit and then went back out front for more projects and talk. Rowan went in back and sorted out Anja’s heavy-duty sewing machine, but the Janome needs more work. We all finally wound down and Loren and Anja¬†were locking up at 11pm.
