Back to school

I had a great summer this year, even if we can't really say there was a real summer in Ireland.
During my trip to Romania I managed to get burnt a bit but otherwise all is OK.

Now preparations for the autumn are in full swing. Here is a few dates for your diary, as mine are already nearly full;
  • First we have the big ''Lace Convention'' at An Grianan with the fashion show and all the fun that comes with it. I can't even imagine the good times ahead of us to be had.
  • On the of 18th September we have the cultural night in Dublin and I will be putting on a demo in The Constant Knitter. This is followed by another workshop which I will hosting the weekend after at the same location.
Bookings well underway for this one.
  • Then the weekend following that on the 3rd of October we are embarking on a new and exciting big adventure.....!!!! We start the first of many workshops in Drogheda.

So fingers cross they all go OK.
  • Then the big date for your diary 12-15th of November at the Knitting and Stitching Show in RDS Dublin.
I did it..... yes, I made the decision... I took a stand and will have an exhibition of my work.
So you are all welcome to check it out and enjoy!
Don't you let me down by not dropping by to say hello....
I will talk more about all this soon.

Happy crafting all,

Summer , holidays and lots of work started but not finished

Long time did not say anything in my blog . Is not like I would not have anything to say just to busy doing everything at once.
Home in holiday after about 3 years was nothing different from before , had the impression I never missed anything and never been missed : ) :) .
Well... the single and most important thing  I missed are the little ones . They grew up to some lovely misses

This children are the brightest moments when I been back to my natal country otherwise all same .
Anyway the breack was very good for my eyes , manage to crochet without glasses at some stage.
Not like I am free of glasses now. I back o my job and in half a week manage to  get back to same blindness like before, I think is more blood pressure related .
I am well into finishing my Xmas lace designs . Yeah .. I know pronounced the word which everyone try to avoid right now but don't worry from September you are going to hear it everywhere in special in the adds for parties .

Hope you got the idea :) :)  ..Yeah ??... White how you think a Xmas can be ? If I give you to much info I spoil the surprise and I have to get them out by September at the Lace Convention :) :)
Hope my Santa will come by Saturday when my over 20 kg of thread will arrive in the pack which I send from holiday.
Then will be my husband's surprise which by magic transform a skein in balls.
Will keep in touch and maybe I will make'it with some pics of my lovely threads, can't wait is actually better than Santa

Happy crafting all
