Ike hit Texas pretty hard along the Gulf. I've heard from many of my reenacting friends and so far relatively minor damage, no houses destroyed. The Henkel Square site has no damage; I'm waiting to hear about George Ranch. Even if George Ranch did not sustain much damage it's hard to say whether they will go forward with Texian Market days due to the other damage in the surrounding area.
The corset pattern...directions could use a little more work. One half is about done, again by hand. It appears there is quite a large spring in the back, more than I expected or thought accruate. Will reevaluate when done.
