Atlantic

Ah was that little bit of blue our summer?
When the sun does shine (which has not happened much this summer) there is no where nicer than to be beside the sea. Here is the wild Atlantic as you see it driving into Roundstone from Clifden. The beach in the bottom picture is known as "Dogs Bay"

Magnets and Tins

I just got a gift from a friend that despairs that (other than this Blog) I'm not into social media!
I thought it was so cute that I'd share it with you. 
My very own refrigerator communicator and you can find it HERE 
 The little box I made by covering an old tin box with pretty car fabric and then gluing 2 magnets to the back. I hate to part with empty containers if I like their shape or graphics.
 I love to find useful ways to recycle them. 
This is an old peanut tin, first I put masking tape along the top to cover the sharp edge. I then covered it with handmade paper and some buttons and a string bow. 
I finished it with varnish. 
I store erasers in this one

Pathwork

Inspired by the Quilting Exhibition, I tried my hand at a cushion. I found the design in "Some Kind of Wonderful" by Anni Downes.

This is my unfinished pillow
It looks nothing like the picture in the book but that is the beauty of Patchwork, the choice of fabric makes each piece so individual.I have yet to decide on the backing fabric so I'll show it again when I finish it.
