Last Sunday we cooked some of the recipes for this years feast at Civil War.

Came home from work today (first day after summer vacation) and the mailman had brought me a package! It was a lovely Crafty Challenge gift from Racaire – a very cute needle roll. Thank you Racaire!

On another note, a couple of weeks ago I gave Dis her Crafty Challenge gift. It’s was my latest tablet woven band (TWE No 3). She promised me pictures when she has put it to use (probably on her viking garb).

I started a new weaving project. This time it’s inspired of a finding in the Textiles and Clothings book from MoL. It’s a simple striped band with a little twist. The tablets are threaded in groups of three, first S then Z then S again and so on. It gives the band a striped effect along the band as well. I’ve previously woven this pattern for a belt for myself. This time I choose a thinner silk and used more tablets so the width of the band is 14 mm.
