mossley mill exhibition

I took myself off yesterday to the Mossley Mill, Newtownabbey, to see the "Stitching the Legend" Exhibition. It is the work of a small cross border group of textile artists from various parts of Northern Ireland and Ireland. I fell in love with Ester Keily's work. She has wall hangings, panels and notebook covers displayed.....all amazing.
Here are photos of one of her panels - "Salt fell like Snow"

The exhibition is open until the 30th June, so still time to go.
Bye, Ali.

The days seem to be flying in and I don't seem to be achieving much. I had lots of plans and a long to do list for when my class stopped. I am however working on a new pattern. Last year I wrote up a knitted mini doll with fabric clothes which is for sale on my etsy / folksy shop. I'm now working on knitted clothes for this mini knitted doll. It would be a good stocking filler or item for a party bag.
Here's a sneak preview.......

bye for now, Ali.

congratulations ma'am

What better way to celebrate the Jubilee than a nice British cuppa and a Union Jack bickie.

The red, white and blue petunias managed to bloom, just in time even if they were a bit battered by the rain.

Enjoy the Bank holidays, Ali.
