Stitchy-related Faire Finds!

Over the weekend DH, Wee One and I ventured to the Sterling Renaissance Festival. It is about 2 hours away, but is the closest faire to where we now live (which makes me just a little sad!).

And they are stitchy-ish things, too!


First, I bought a small tapestry bag from Gypsy Wings. If you look at her gallery of bags, I have the "Rebekah" in the Blue Italian Quilt design. Gorgeous, well-made, and deceptively roomy! I love it.
Then I found Rainbow Weavings, a woman who makes god's-eye style pendants and earrings using silk and metallic threads. So pretty! I purchased a pendant from her sale board (because the metal frame was a different color on the back than the front). Mine is kind of like these:

OK, back to stitching..... :)
