Held at House Ravenspeak with the Heimdallsons; six adults and four children attended. Shoes, tunics, and favours were worked on upstairs, while downstairs Mikhail made a fluting jig and showed off the knees he had welded up. Katrin took a break from sewing to try out Almaric's heater shield; sounds like the round is more her style. Mikhail will make her one. Valonia worked on her shoes, and, it ends up, already has a stitching awl, a very useful tool, with a full spindle of waxed cotton in it! Quite the find. Freydis (who loves them) showed her how to set it up. Ulrich shaped more bows (he a regular factory, that man), while Almaric glued up a wooden gameboard and drank a congratulatory beer; the soon-to-be-incipient Stronghold's newest member, Bran, was born on Friday!

Freydis provided a small wooden chest left over from Alvena's birthday party and a slot was carefully cut into the lid. Ulrich as the Exchequer took it home after we passed it around (only to find that unplanned-for loose change isn't really a thing anymore, heh) and will finish the raw wood of what is now the Stronghold's strongbox! "Alms for the poor" will now be collected at each meeting to try and raise some funds; the box will of course be at the feast as well, so try to bring a few coins. :)

It sounds like the feast will be well-attended! Those of us with extra will try to bring what miscellaneous feast gear bits we have lying around along, as well as extra candles and holders.

Congratulations to the new parents, and see you all next week!
