Trousers – Topshop
We had a great time in Dublin and managed to get lots into a few days. I had a really run time at the Guinness factory and even pulled my own pint that was drinkable!
I loved all the old advertising that was on show and it was interesting to learn about Guinness and what a huge part of Ireland it is.
We also had a taste of Temple Bar which was a fun evening. We tried to stay away from the constant Hen and Stag do’s but we did manage to see some live music. I would recommend going for a drink in the day if you don’t want to be around crowds and loud groups!
A few months ago I finally got the chance to go to Dublin ! It was a great trip and I loved it even though I had a cold.
It was the first time I had used Air Bnb and we had the loveliest little apartment. The hosts were really nice and it was a great choice of location. It meant we could walk everywhere and that’s how i found all these amazing street art. We even caught a guy working on a piece.!
It’s been a busy few months and a lot has changed for me. I have moved out of home to a completely different part of the country and started a new exciting job! So i have been a bit too busy for the blog but now I’m settled and back on it.
I have had the great opportunity to start working for Hobbycraft as ‘Yarn Master’ so you will start to see me a lot over on the Hobbycraft blog bringing you new designs and exciting project and events to get involved in.
Today I went and explored Boscombe for the first time. I found some really nice vintage shops and some really nice beach huts that have added to my love for them. It’s a nice walk by the beach and I can’t wait to go back next week and run by the sea.
I would love to find out more about the area so if you have any suggestions then please comment below. I’m really interested in exploring more.
This time we are looking at cross stitch and have loved the trend of ‘rude embroidery’ so thought we would give it a go. We have got plenty of hoops, aida fabric and endless amounts of thread for a fun filled afternoon.
We love hosting Crafternoon’s and getting people involved in making something unique. It’s a nice way to learn a new skill and meet different people. Once you have a theme it’s easy to organise so get your friends together and host your own.
I might be a bit obsessed with making granny squares at the moment. I am half way through making a skirt that will have 80 squares by the time I am finished. But… these dresses are amazing and have jumped to the top of my project list.
I think they are a great way to update the granny square and in the right colours will look amazing.
Watch these space for my own creation !
