Quilt update.

Quilt update. Remember that quilt? I’m pretty sure my last blog post said something like,” Tune in next week for an update…” well, here it is almost a month later! I actually did finish it within that first week, of course you’ll just have to take my word for it, but I did. But here […]

Super Easy Quilt Making.

Super Easy Quilt Making. ‘Super easy quilt making’ is probably the wrong title for this post. It should actually read, ‘ Make it up as you go ‘. This morning I was doing my favourite Sunday morning activity. That would be drinking coffee in my p.j’s whilst browsing Pinterest – when I came across this: […]

Tweed Tote Bag.

Tweed Tote Bag. The Knitting and Stitching show was on in Dublin last week. There is no place like it for stocking up on crafting materials, especially the ones you didn’t know you needed! I should take a list, write down all the projects i’d like to do and what I will need to make […]

The Paint Bug.

The Paint Bug. The last few weeks have been a bit crazy. A lot crazy actually. We were away on holiday, then Zac went back to college. Tim had an minor surgery and then we had a family wedding. The holiday and wedding were fantastic and the surgery and college move went smoothly. I’m not […]

Home is the Nicest Word.

Home is the Nicest Word. According to the dictionary it means, ‘House or other dwelling’. To me it means love, family, comfort, safety, coziness. I am a home bird. My favourite place to be is home. Going on holiday is fabulous, but the day we’re returning i’m frantic to get back . It’s where my […]

Knit one, Purl one.

Knit one, Purl one.. Do you knit? Do you like cosy fires and winter days and knitting away the winter? In theory so do I, but for some reason whenever I get bitten by the knitting bug its summer time. You could argue the summer part, officially its Autumn, but the days are still fairly […]

Summer Art Class

Summer Art Class Despite the wind and rain in Kerry (cats and dogs I tell you!) it’s time for summer art class. There was nothing else for it today, it lashed rain all day. Not what you expect for the first of August, but it was a perfect day for staying inside and getting the […]

The Perfect Gift.

The perfect gift.   Last week I went to the Craft Makers gallery to drop off some artwork. I am wrong to call it a gallery, it’s more than that. As their website says, it’s a craft store, gallery, workshop and studio. Their ethos is wonderful, make, learn , buy. “At Craft Makers we follow […]

Upcycled Briefcase.

Upcycled Briefcase. Black briefcase? yes, I’ve got one of those. Uses for a black briefcase? – none. Something to display handmade gifts in for craft shows? See where this is going? Firstly, I painted it all over with gesso. Removed all the pockets from the inside, which left a wooden panel. I was going to […]

Lazy Sunday Afternoons… by Felicia.

Lazy Sunday Afternoons… Its Sunday. Actually it is not completely lazy. I love Sunday mornings, my family are either up and out early for work or they sleep in. The house is quiet, even the dogs sleep in. I get up, stay in my P.J’s (that is most important for maximum enjoyment), make coffee and […]
