Sunday was Herdmaster. I dressed three from Gold Key. For handwork I took along my green silk to finish the hem. Once that was done I dug into the bag of linen to prepare coifs and hankies for my work basket. I made arrangements to hire the hall for a sewing day Saturday, May 6th 10am to 'whenever'. We'll work up shirts and chemises for Gold Key. Zino won the champion position, Kate was made herd-driver and Morgana got Espiritu. Back home at the sewing table I finished the sniglet top and started pressing a lot of cotton I'd washed this weekend.
Sunday we were up and out for Baronial A&S at a very nice new (and economical) location. Carlos talked me into helping with the judging so very little quilting was accomplished. Carlos had succeeded in getting a good number of entries including Jane, Leofwyna, Isabeau, Natalya, Gwyneth, Zino, Volkmar(!), Aveline, Ffelix, and Halldora. Zino's very impressive poetry entry was the winner. There were several visitors (I dressed a couple from Gold Key), many of whom were 'self costumed'. At the sewing table I'm cutting the red into strips for another Kronberg top.
NOTE: Turns out I was ahead of myself as Craig didn't show up Tuesday. Leofwyna put in the new front door latch and lock herself. Learned it was rather easier than we were lead to expect; she coulda had it done months ago! We still need to have Craig come back when we're available for it.
I spent my days Thursday and Friday as originally planned finding and setting up for my sewing days for Camera Key and Gold Key. I'm not getting a lot of response to my request for labor except for Morgana. Kate is coming too but she'll be working on her gambason project so she can get advice during the process. Oh well, Leofwyna will be back and I'll set her to work on some of it too. Friday evening I actually got one blouse made over into a sleeve-partlet to add to camera key while I waited for Leofwyna to get home.
