New crafting stuff etc

Last weekend I attended SCA Drachenwald's Crown Tournament. Most of the time I was beating pie-crust ;-) but I did had time to do some crafts too. There were also merchants at the event. Look what I bought!



Loose skeins are from Dracon's Den (?) and smaller ones are from lovely Lady Sahra. Too bad I had so little money left. I'd loved to buy more yarns from Sahra. All those yarns are hand-dyed with plants.
I also bought one book, Celtic Illuminated LEtters. I am so excited to start my new scrolls!

I also started my effort for the Drachenwald's Coat of Arms Wallhanging. To be honest, Iam not satisfied with the embroidery I did :( I tried Laid and couched work 1st time and I did it a biiiit wrong :D Plus I should have used 3 threads, not 2, as it seems it does not cover the area well. Oh well, I'll finish that Nea Nikosia's badge as I started it and try something else on the next ones.

Nice threads :)
Too bad that I couldn't afford the money to travel to the crown tourney too... *sigh*
I hope you enjoyed your SCA event :)

As far as I know the Dragon's Den sells things for the travel fund of our Majesties (because they have to travel a lot) or other similar things - just 'fund raising' ;)

Keep my fingers crossed for your laid and couched work - it's rather important that the used thread is "thick" enough to cover the surface... :) I am sure you'll handle it :)
