Loads of stalls and demos, caught up with some mates, came away with another Ben Orford spoon knife, GB hand hatchet, some leather and some flint knapping gear and stuff, none of which I intended !!!
Could have been worse though, was very, very tempted with Tim's puukko knives at Greenmanknives.com, fantastic quality and workmanship and you couldn't find a nicer more helpful guy to talk about sharpening, sheath making, knives etc. I managed to resist on this occasion, but once you have seen his work up close and handled them, I think it's just a matter of time before one finds it's way over here
I really should get better organised and stay over next time, looks like a lot of fun is had in the evenings too when the day visitors have gone !
No pics though sadly, I was too busy taking everything in
I went and it was all fine and dandy. A fair bit of decent kit hidden amongst the tat too. Didn't get to see the demonstrations as I was working on the kid's den building but overall I found it to be an enjoyable weekend. Next year I will face the dilemma of doing a full Bushmoot or leaving the moot early to do both events...
Had a great time as ever....I seem to have moved on from spending (though not entirely !) to enjoying catching up with people from here and elsewhere and admiring the crafting skills. Always good to come away with a project list....
Need to start a thread for the 2016 gathering. Going to be a bit of a change for me, this year I won't have the kids..
Will miss having the kids there, but have never drank much of the cider or stayed up for the bands.
