Lovely birds

it has been so long since my last entry, apologies for that!
life is very busy these days as i am back in college again. i got lots of pictures i want to share, but never seem to have the time to upload them anymore!
today however, i want to share something lovely that i went to last week... my dear parents were visiting (yay!) so we went to eagles flying here in sligo and got to experience a really amazing bird show! we had eagles, falcons and owls flying right over our heads, i even had a falcon perched on my hand-it really was an absolutely brilliant day out! eagles flying is a centre for owls and birds of prey and the german couple running it are so delightfully lovely. if you are ever in the ballymote area, a visit is well worth a detour!

Wedding pillow

earlier this summer, my superlovely friend T
got married in Kenya
(i know, what a dreamy location..!)
as a wedding present, i made this felt pillow
with maasai men on the front and
the initials of the gorgeous couple on the back

the silhouettes of the maasai men came from a
photograph from the wedding,
so every time they see the pillow
they will remember their wedding day!

a big *mwah!* to T and B
and many congrats again!

Crayfish party

if you're ever in sweden in august time
(and this year i was! )
traditional crayfish party is a must!
make sure you include the following:
slightly scary looking moon lanterns,
shots of 42% snaps, lots of loud singing,
ugly hats, cheese pie and of course crayfish

what better way to celebrate the end of summer?

a big shout out to my fellow people at the table
you know who you are and i love you guys!

Ring pillow

i have been working in felt a lot lately
but as most of it is for bespoke orders,
i won't be able to share for another while.
the ring pillow is for sale however and
will be added to the shop tomorrow!
i just couldn't wait 'til then to show it! :)
i am really happy with how it turned out and
am thinking of making more in slightly
different designs and colours.
if you have any specific colours you
would like to see, please let me know!

Pin cushion

just had to show my new pin cushion!
i rejected it as a ring pillow (aww..) but it
works really well for all my pins!
~colour coordinated too!~
(cue boyfriend rolling his eyes)
yeah, ok, there are better things i
could be doing with my time...
but you have to admit it looks
better in the picture this way!

A lovely long weekend

just back from Düsseldorf where
myself and the bf spent a relaxing long weekend!
the weather was gorgeous with 25-30 degrees
and sunshine so we spent most of the time exploring
the city on foot and taking lots of breaks for ice cream,
lovely food and most importantly - cold beer!
they seem to have breweries in every corner of
the old town and my favourite was
Füchschen Alt,
mainly because of the lovely logo..! i know, i know,
but how could you not fall for that cute little fox?

ah yes, had time for some supply shopping too!

Crochet addiction
and brooches

i have recently started to learn how to crochet
with the help of the wonderful Natasha and i
never expected it to be so addictive!

i have started to bring the crochet hooks everywhere
and was up 'til 4 in the morning finishing
off a scarf the other night- i just could not
put it down 'til it was finished!

the picture above shows some of the things i have
made so far, lets start with the really crookedly looking
flat thing in two different brown tones...
its not finished, its definitely not perfect, but i love it
nonetheless as it was the first thing i made!

and one day im turning it into a cushion!

the grey and yellow flowers are the start of a shawl
i got about 8 flowers made so far...
just another 157 or so to go!

the big flowers (yup, i love flowers!)
are being turned into brooches,
they will be available to buy in the shop soon!

i really enjoy making little brooches and when
emile the cat was sold earlier this week i made a
'mini emile' brooch to come with him to his new home!

-gonna miss you emile-
be nice to your lovely new owner!
