Early Week

31oiexqyfxl-_sx305_bo1204203200_Now that some of the insanity of the holidays is past, we’re starting to look ahead to prizes and largesse things that have been promised for various events. We’re making a period sewing kit, a bunch of needles and some bar dice for prizes.

The Cheese History book came. Anja says, “I’m going to devour it (not literally!) and then House members can borrow it.”

She also started the favors for the entrants to the Summits A&S Championship and set up some pickled chickpeas for next week’s potluck.

Sewing Time – …was just Amy and Anja and they talked cheese more than sewing. Anja stitched up her seat cushion that had popped open in the laundry and got two pincushions dimpled. Amy discussed some of the hats that she’s been working on and put into the largesse pile and she donated some yarn and knitters.

Herb Bunch – Put away herbs. That’s all.

Project Day

Gary came in right after church as he often does and finding Anja and Loren trying to deal with a balky convection oven, took off again. Eventually the cake was baked. Stella came, then Amy, then Gary back again and we all worked on some music, then had cake (and sang Happy Birthday to Gary!), told some stories and headed home. That didn’t come up with a lot of pictures, but we had a fun time!
