And it's not even Pennsic. I have a couple of things that I am designing for Bhakail Investiture in June.  They involve appliques and gilt and heraldic lizards. I am making an elevation dress for 12th night.  I want to make myself a new gown for 12th night.  And then there is the clearing of the stack.

Now that my feet can handle sewing again, it is time to completely clear the stack.  There isn't too much on it at the moment, but I need to get the rest of the cloaks done and out the door. I've been working on designs. And it feels good to get all the ideas out of my head and onto paper. And I've really been enjoying the design phase.

Because the subtlety phase is coming. I have 3-4 in the first 1/2 of the year.  I need to get those designs out of my brain soon.

Because the menu design phase is also coming.

This is an exciting time to be in my brain. Hopefully I can actually build what's in there.

In doing some link surfing for alphafemale1, I stumbled across an early pumpkin pie recipe. I may have to make this. I will be using the butter substitution for panch and udder. Though suet may have potential, if it can be found.

To make a Tart of Pompeons.
Take Pompeons and make them cleane and grate them as you doe Cheese, and boile them a little in broth and milk, then take as much Cheese as aforesaid, adde to it also a little old Cheese, take also a pound of the panch [paunch] of a Hogge, or a Cowes Udder well sodden [boiled] and chopped small, and if you will you may use Butter instead of those two things aforesaid, or Suet, adding to it halfe a pound of Sugar, a little Saffron and Sinamon with a quart of milk, and Egges, as need requireth. And when you thinke the Pompeons are sodden, take them up and straine them, and colour it with Saffron, then make a crust of past under it, put it in a pan, and make a soft fire both under and over it, and being half baked, cover it with Wafers or such like stuffe instead of an upper crust, and being thorow baked, straw it with Sugar and Rosewater.1598 English translation, grandly entitled Epulario, Or, The Italian Banquet; Wherein is shewed the maner how to dresse and prepare all kind of Flesh, Foules, or Fishes. As also how to make Sauces, Tartes, Pies, &c. After the Manner of all Countries. Translated out of the Italian into English..
