... or Daisy, Daisy and a bicycle made for two!
During lunchtime once I'd tidied up my workshop table, I took some photos of the Robin Hood display. Nicholas James had joined the display during the morning wearing his outfit which my girl had sewn (with a bit of help from me).

|The wonderful outfits on the dolls in the Robin Hood display were all unique and special, I could not imagine how they would choose a winner|
|Three beautiful medieval ladies gathered under the Greenwood tree|
|Some of the face masks which were made during the morning workshops - the black and sequinned mask on the left just below the green mask was made for Kendal by my girl|

|Kendal's only todder, Bea, was naturally the doll welcoming everyone to the display|

After the delicious lunch we all settled down to the fun of the raffle. We all crowded into the room with the raffle table and Robin Hood display.

While the sales tables were being set up those of us not selling anything congregated in the refreshments area for plenty of doll chatting. I didn't take photos of the sales tables however I took the opportunity of taking photos of the dolls on display, spotting those who were proudly holding their new marionettes.
We bought a few things during the sales which I'll feature in a future post. It was a good opportunity for more doll chatting with friends. Once the sales tables were packed away again there was enough time to take our raffle wins and purchases back to our rooms and get ready for dinner.
