We had a wonderful, and busy, Whitsun at the vikingmarket in the Archeon.
Aud/Audrey is doing sprang under supervision of her daughter Skuld/Aurora
Per/Peter is doing leatherwork
My son and husband are doing leatherwork as well.
Me doing some embroidery, instead of nalebinding, for a change.
My son had been asking me, for embroidery on his tunic, for a year. Now I finally got around to it. It is very simple, a herringbone stitch and a chainstitch in wool thread, but I think it looks nice. Myrddin is happy with it, and that is most important.
Friends who came to shop, ended up sitting in our camp, doing crafts....
Cyril is teaching my son Myrddin how to make his own arrows.
Marianne is doing some nalebinding.
Even the public joined in the fun! This lovely young lady, named Iris, wanted to learn how to do nalebinding and asked for a workshop. In return she gave me a refreshment course fingerlooping.
Ofcourse there was also time to play.
Per/Peter did a Robin Hood!
Ofcourse at a market you have to shop!
A lady never ever has enough shoes ;-)
After buying the shoes there was no money left to buy the white, diamond twill, linnen in need for my Princess of Zweeloo costume reconstruction. But I did manage to buy a beaver tooth. So I can wear it on a chain, around my neck, just like her.
Finally we had a chance to try the Anglo-Saxon geteld we bought last year.
Along with some other things Remko made during the winter.
Next weekend we will be doing medieval re-enactment on Sunday. I am lucky if I get all the viking stuff cleaned up and all the medieval thing together in time. So I won't have time to work on my Edwardian costume this week.
