Stopping the crowds

Hello everyone. I hope that you are all having a lovely weekend. I am as it is sunny and we have blue skies here and I did my first day of teaching with one of my new groups yesterday. I have changed job roles this year and just moved office so am feeling very much like it is first days back at school! I have been busy making baskets for Sarah as well.

At our recent event in Lincoln during the Steam Punk Festival we once again went out to promote our show and in the evening for a photo shoot at the cathedral so I thought that I would share the pictures with you.Thanks to Kate and Wendy, our fab Swords of Mercia support crew, for these. I think we look brilliant!

We were once again very popular, especially the girls who spent ages being photographed. There are lots of photography groups who come and visit for the weekend and Ellie and Kerry, as well the knights spent ages posing for them and I even got asked as well!

I love these pictures of Ellie inside the cathedral.

There were also some brilliant ones of our knights, especially the ones of them kneeling in parts of the cathedral.

This is a superb shot of Jamie in his newest armour.

We also had some great ones taken back at the Bishop’s Palace, look at this lovely pair of medieval gentlemen.

Luke has new armour, what a surprise,  and here he is with Shane in his latest livery.

Here is Paul with Clive, Shane and Jamie outside the cathedral.

I really do think our group looks splendid, am very proud of everyone for all of the effort that they make with their kit. That was our last show as a group for this year, Ellie, Kerry and I will be at Caldicot Castle in South Wales for our last show of the season this coming weekend and then it is going to be a lovely Autumn of sitting stitching and thinking about Christmas crafting 😉

I hope that you are all having a nice start to Autumn, it is one of my favourite times of the year, am looking forward to some blackberry picking soon and lots of cooking nice stews. Will be back next week with a final round up of baskets that I have made!

Thanks for visiting and take care.

  1. Thank you both, I think we have done really well, some of it has been bought but a lot of it has been made by members of the group even some of the armour and it takes a lot of effort to do that.I am always going to start a new dress but never get around to it. I have the fabric but other things get in the way, maybe next year!
