Thought I would post a picture of kit I have made recently and tell you about my latest castle visit!
This is my friend Jamie in the shirt I made him, I have lots of requests for shirts now so will be busy in the off-season and will get lots of practise at making holes!
We did a lovely show this last weekend with some friends, it was a countryside show just outside a town called Bewdley in Worcestershire.
I was dressed as a lady all day (a very rare sight and I didn’t get any pictures!) and Kerry and I did head-dress talks and the boys had a tournament. Luckily the weather was great.
After the show I stayed on for a bit and went castle visiting. This is Stokesay Castle in Shropshire which has been on my wish list to visit for a while.
It is a fortified manor house in most beautiful setting and we had a lovely day.
Most of the rooms were bare apart from this very lovely 17th century panelling in the tower.
There is also an old church next door with beautiful wall paintings – sadly none of my pics came out well as it was dark.
We did find some old graves with lovely textures on the headstones where the lichen had grown over them
And we finished the day having some very nice cider in a pub in the centre of Bewdley, these are the views of the River Severn.
I do not have any shows planned for a few weeks now so will be getting on with rabbit knitting, shirt making and some house fettling, I have some bits of painting to do.Will have a new rabbit to show you at the weekend!
Thank you as always for visiting.
One thought on “More kit and castles!”
Bewdley is a charming place. The last time I visited Stokesay I was about twelve, so I guess another visit is in order…
