Pennsic was utterly awesome, absolutely exhausting, and I had a great time.  Thank you to all those who came up to me and said how much they liked my site or my blog, and for making me feel pretty.

Shout out to hugh_mannity! Very nice to see you, my friend.

I had a crazy, crazy time.  Hearing a bunch of people singing the chorus to Bob's songs is quite something, and sorry about Bob's finger (he shaved off a bit of the tip by accident two weeks before; the finger is okay, only a little bit of bone is missing, plus most of the nail, but it should all recover).  Thanks to good friends for picking up the guitar.

We're off to a party this weekend, which will be a nice change from laundry (which is all done, but I still have to iron and put away all our clothes).  After that, Bob will start again on the library.  I've realized, going through my boxes, that I have a lot of very cool out-of-print books, and I want to be able to access them easily again.  Soon.

I'm still recovering physically.  Even though it was a lovely time, Pennsic is pretty rough on me these days.  Fortunately, it didn't seem to show too much, and I'm sure the three-hour naps in the afternoon (yay for ice bags) helped.  But I'm still a bit of a limp rag.

Still, it was great.  Heck, it was like old home week - I saw people I haven't seen in years.  It was awesome.

Glad you had a wonderful time. Wished I was there. ;)

It was good to see you. You looked marvelous and I envy you your superpower of being able to walk around at Pennsic without getting mud-spattered.

I've only occasionally commented here and I don't think we've ever met in person, so I didn't feel comfortable stopping by and being a fangirl. That said, it was vaguely reassuring to see you out and about the camp (and the pikes gathering up!) a couple times as I walked by on my way from Big Yellow House to Heralds Point, in that sort of "there's someone whose name I know! Pennsic isn't just a faceless mass of strangers! And a person from the Internet is real!" way. Glad to hear you had a good time.

Extreme Costuming Website Question
Hi there,

I heard about your coif patterns from a friend and I would LOVE to purchase one for myself, but the Reconstructing History page only has pictures so tiny you cannot at all, whatsoever, see what the pattern is. This makes it tough to spend $10 on the pattern. I understand you have to be careful not to make the pictures too big or high-res or people will just steal your designs... but I can't buy a pattern based on a blurry picture the size of a quarter. Do you have links somewhere to better images of your patterns? If not, can you send me some?

Thanks so much!

~A hopeful purchaser of your work :)

i have occasionally thought of goiong to pennsic. especially since i am retired. but for it to be any fun i would have to take harps cittern lutes sazi and other musical instruments. that would mean a relatively cool dry place to store them or no go. i used to know a former east king who had a house hold but he seems to have dropped out due to business time constraints. what i would need is a very together bardic household to stay with, guard instruments, etc.

and to get my wife interested in going--she is more into gardening in august.
