Hopping Phules ~ The Baroness War

mirellaThis last weekend found the de Huntington family in the Barony of Vulcanfeldt, attending “Hopping Phules” ~ The Baroness War. vulkanfeldtbaronyof


We could not have asked for a more beautiful weekend for an event. We stayed in a hotel, not far from the site, which had a wonderful swimming pool that our entire family enjoyed. This was a great option for us, as it is still exceedingly cold at night. After driving over a snowy pass on our journey, we were thrilled for a Saturday with clear and warm skies.

I was quite pleased with Molly’s new wool tunic. Although they are not obvious in this picture, there are gores inserted into the skirt section of this tunic which gave it a nice fullness and swing. And most importantly, it served its purpose by allowing her to run and play while keeping her warm.

Mirella and Molly enjoyed playing with the other children, both at the established play areas and at the river which ran through the park.

Gerald spent the day at war – and he could not have been happier. 🙂

One Finished Cloak

mollys-cloakMolly’s circle cloak is finally finished, just in time for the Baroness War. What a relief!

After the appliqué of the crescent was completed, I sewed the wool to the red linen lining. Then the An Tir badge trim was added with hand sewing. This took approximately 4-5 hours, much of which was accomplished while crossing White Pass on the way to the Baroness War. The final detail was to add a small clasp.

It feels great to have this project finished. Now I just have to finish Mirella’s cloak.
