|Ignatius put in a request for this dress. My forearms must have grown, because the sleeves were really tight this time. Might have also been the chemise.|
|Site token for the event - pretty!|
|I had put in a request for the vest. Think he likes his hat too!|
After setting up our table area, we helped Tamar make boffers for the shire. Boffers are padded sword type devices that adults or children can use to practice with. Ignatius was putting the pvc pipe inside the foam tube and I was putting the end cap on at the bottom of each one. I wandered away after I had all of them end capped since I didn't want to play with the duct tape.
|Octavian with his boffers getting the kids playing. At one point he was defending himself from both of them.|
|Tamar and her hammer|
|Ignatius and his mace. Tamar is worried about the edge and noses, but it is foam under the duct tape.|
So I wandered over to the table that Duncan was at. He enjoys bookbinding and had samples of ones that he has done while he was folding pages for a book he's binding for a friend:
|The two on the left have wood covers but have leather to protect their bound edge, the open one is also with a wood cover. The open one on the red paper cover is a was tablet with writing stylus. The wax is beeswax.|
Their shire also does Acorn War, so there was a jar of acorns to guess how many were in there. I guessed 433, but Octavian was closer to the 504 with 501 as his guess.
Dinner was nice and after clearing up and helping put away some chairs, we headed off to home. A nice afternoon.
