We have had a great day out at Ironfest in Lithgow today. Described as an "arts festival with a metal edge" it covers blacksmithing, jousting, history reenactments, medieval weapons and costumes, and steampunk......just about anything you can think of. This years theme was Time Travel, so of course Dr Who and the Daleks were there.
These two fearsome fellows belong to us.
There are camps set up from Viking and medieval times, and British colonial soldiers.
It's one of the best festivals I've ever been to, a real opportunity for people to express their individuality and passion for anything a bit left of centre.
On a stitching note, the little hexagons from Nundle have found a home.......but this is all I can show for now.
I am really enjoying school holidays at home. I hope you found some time to stitch over the weekend.
