Well decided not to go to Liendo. The weather was not great and none of my friends were able to go this year, so I stayed home. It sounds that others stayed away as well. It's a great site and at one time was a great event, but I think it has too many modern vendors and few period sutlers now. Skuttlebutt is that the event may be ending as the site owner has some medical issues to deal with. Many events in Texas are going by the wayside and I'm not sure what is the real issue behind it.
Up next then is the ball, I hope. Have picked out my ball gown, still looking for the fabric. Probably won't start on it until after December 31 when I'll know for sure if the ball will make. Here is the inspiration, the blue one on the left.
