I caught up with Kate yesterday in Athlone for Create with Kates, Christmas in July. We (Tim, myself and some other climbing friends ) were camping in Doolin Co. Clare so it was a bit of a drive ( in theory much closer than driving from Kerry, but it was like a roller coaster most of the way!) but very worth it! Caught up with lots of lovely crafters, ( Karen, Eve, Sandie, Helen, Caroline, Pat to name a few) met some new friends ( Martina!) I picked up everything we need for the Tim Holtz altered clock class…… all I can say is I loved making this!!
This was the journal we made in Ballinameela two weeks ago. I got a hold of some genuine vintage music manuscripts, some of them are dated to 1904 – beautiful papers just asking to be made into something pretty!
The tuesday morning classes are fun, not huge but I love having the ladies over to play! Last week was so hot we couldn’t go into the garden to work, in fact we could hardly do a thing (we are not used to the heat at all!) so we managed to make some altered pegs… believe me, it was an effort to do this much!
Last weekend we went to Caherdaniel, West Kerry. This place is close to heaven! We camped, kayaked, walked a bit of the Kerry Way and felt like we were on holidays an hour from home.
Look at the kayak park! just dump them here, take your paddle and remember which one is yours!
Some Kerry humour……..!
Look at the colour of that water!!! blue, green, clear!
We have been invited to two weddings in two weeks – but they are miles apart so I can wear the same dress! I spent ages looking for one, found this one and then Molly was going to Ladies Day at the races and had nothing to wear (Ha! she has loads of clothes, she meant she had nothing NEW to wear!) so she ended up wearing my dress. She is much taller than me so it isn’t this short, its just above my knee. |It was her19th birthday, isn’t she fab? (I know i’m biased!)
