Herbal oil and Vinegar Workshop

I have continued with the A&S Century Challenge; it is a habit now, and also I have so much still to do.
This weekend I was privileged to attend a short but interesting workshop on making medieval oils and vinegars. It all smelt lovely and was a lot of fun.

 We made a Mint  a range of vinegars and sauces including mustard sauce, clove mouthwash and rosemary vinegar.

A&S Century Challenge - Heraldic Device

Day 105- I think! I finished this device for a friend. It will join the other registered devices on the Device banner. Ground fabric and sword are wool felt which has been whip stitched down and embroidered over. Embroidery is in split, chain and satin stitch.

My SCA Barony records the devices of members on a banner. They are recorded in order of registration under the devices of the Baron and Baroness at the time. It is a lovely way to record the populace, a great hall decoration, and can be used as a prop in a fun 'guess the heraldry' game.

A&S Century Challenge - Secret Scribey Projects

I've been working on projects for other people and doing scribal work, so no photos. I do have a picture of my special helper. :-)
