The sun shines on the righteous

Hello, am just back from mainly sunny Spain where I had a fab time at a couple of fiestas so once I have sorted out the pictures will post them.

Meanwhile my lovely friends from Swords of Mercia were battling the evil dragon at their St George’s Day show at Bolsover Castle so I thought that I would show you some pictures of that including the new surcoat that I made in action.

We always have a couple of dragons, a cute comedy one for the kids and a big scary one as well as the Dragon Knight who captures the Princess, played by Ellie and brave St George comes along and fights them all and rescues her.

First this lovely picture of some of the group in the morning sun, from the left Trevor who plays the cute dragon, Sadie, Ellie, Kerry, (in her gorgeous new dress!) and Jamie who plays the scary dragon.

Here is the cute dragon, the kids love him and think that is an easy one for St George to battle until they see the scary one, look at those wings! And there is the evil Dragon Knight controlling his beast.

St George is very brave though, and he has a beautiful new surcoat 😉 to protect him so he manages to battle the dragon and save the Princess.

These great photos are courtesy of Kate, I love the one of the sun glinting off St George’s armour, brilliant shot!

The evil dragon is slain and St George is victorious!

I am looking forward to seeing everyone at our next show at the end of May at the beautiful Ashby Castle, can’t wait for re-enactment to start again, camping, sitting round the fire, barbecues and brilliant fun with my friends 🙂

Meanwhile there is the joy of crafting, not sure what I will make this afternoon but going to have a little play. Came back from Spain with more lovely ribbons, sadly the vintage fabric stall was not at the market but there may be a few pouches to be made!

Take care and I will be back soon, have a lovely Bank Holiday for those of you in the UK and thanks for visiting.
