I think that'll be the organizing persona - a bored noblewoman consigned to a convent with no vocation and a lot of time on her hands. The five items will be:
* The tafl game, for whiling away time she ought to be spending in prayer
* A white or brightly-colored headdress and fillet, like Aldhelm condemns in nuns
* A (translation of a) Latin women's love song from The Cambridge Songs and (original) music for it
* A (translation of an) Anglo-Saxon love poem and music for it (Wulf and Eadwacer, already done)
* The Leather Object
The tafl game is close to being done (except for the ornamental border but I don't think that'll happen before March)
I have a gold faux-brocaded fillet already, if I don't get to make another one, and I have some white silk and purple silk thread. I could make a nice veil out of that.
Wulf and Eadwacer is done, although I have to get the score right. I don't think it'll take me long to do up one of the Cambridge Songs.
My next hurdle on the Leather Object is finding appropriate leather and a form to mold it on (if I use the cuir bouilli technique, as opposed to stuffing it). An old-fashioned wooden broomstick would be ideal, but I can't think of the last time I saw one. They're all plastic and metal now. Maybe they'd have one at Home Depot?
