I'm not sure about the rest of you but I managed, with the help of
friends, to change the motor out in Nora's car. I made it to fighter
practice (unlike some) and saw some old faces and new. I gave away the
last of my SCA business cards (Santiago could you please bring me some
more on Thursday?) I recieved my crossbow via the US postal service but
need bolts. I also managed to find time to sleep (4 hours it seems) so I
had a busy weekend. Hope all are well. And are we gonna have a big
fighter practice this Thursday? The large group was fun!!!

> Greetings Bordermarch,
> This weekend HE Elisabeth had me helping her all day Saturday setting up her sewing room; she was absolutely gleeful when it was done. She completed the new  Herald's tabard, and then moved onto making another Frankish style dress;  she will have to fill in the details. It was quite refreshing to see her spinning with childlike abandon as she modeled her Ansteorra yellow creation for me.
> I spent Sunday in the shop fine tuning the bow. The dark zebra wood nocks I added to the bow, compliment the white oak limbs rather nicely. The addition of the nocks really pulled the whole bow together, and now I feel that closure is finally obtainable.
> I also built a jig for making Flemish style bowstrings. Since the jig took very little time to make, I proceeded to make a few  bowstrings.
> Although we briefly touched on the art of making bowstrings in the last bowyer's class, we didn't have time to make one. We will be having another Bordermarch A&S day sometime in September, and perhaps we can cover bowstring construction in more detail then.
> What did you do this weekend that was beneficial to our society and mankind in general?
> HE Santiago
