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!

I sat and sewed for the vast majority of the day, occasionally walking the site and seeing old friends, making new ones. I have another event in two weeks.... one of my favorites, the Holiday Faire. A great place to buy gifts and procure needed bits and bobs for the coming year. My favorite merchants are always there, Gryffon Furniture, Eadrik the Potter, and others too.
I am grateful for the weather, grateful for friends new and old, and grateful that traffic was only moderately horrible!
Back to sewing and making Christmas presents and cleaning tomorrow.

In my very own neighborhood there is a wonderful place, not quite hidden from view, that I finally got to see up close. I give you........Hobbiton!
