Another summer, another wonderful #pvdfestwith @thesteelyard ! Special thanks to @islay_obviously for helping me haul my gear! My little dragons had so much fun meeting all of the lovely folk!

I finished the forging on another asymmetric wrapped axe today! It was so much work, that I really needed a pint at the end. A pint of ice cream, that is! ;P And no, I didn’t finish the whole thing.
