A little trip to Dublin

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!

Dublin Street Art

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.!

I’m back !

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.

Craft Please !

 

This weekend me and my friend Zoe are hosting another Crafternoon !

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 !
