I also spent time with old friends, and met some new ones. I tasted what may have been the most vinegary pickled veggies I have ever had!
And, of course, the shopping! I commissioned a cup for my sister, she loves the one I got a year ago from Eadric The Potter,(thatpotteryguy on fb and Etsy). I love pretty nearly everything he makes. I also got my son (who might read this blog) a commission, though not from
Eadric, and John made it while I shopped around! That is service! A few view pins and I was done shopping. Not, however, done wanting! There was much to see, cloth, fiber, furniture and jewelry. Food, boxes, sundries and tapestries. If it is medieval, or plausible, it was there.
I am back among the living, feeling good and busy as can be getting ready for the holidays. My son comes to visit for Thanksgiving, and my daughter for Christmas. I am lucky enough to have my sister here full time, and there are parties and concerts beginning to fill my schedule. Making gifts, teaching classes and planning projects are in full swing. I think i may need a day off for rest soon!
