irish colleen

I always loved entering the St Georges Market tea cosy competition, every year, but it seems to have died a death. It was great seeing the other entries, so many creative cosies. So, I've looked further afield and found a similar competion, taking place at Dun Laoghaire. It is part of the Craft Festival taking place this Sunday at the Royal Marine Hotel.
Here's my entry...shes supposed to be an Irish Colleen.....

She was great fun to make and will be sold for charity on Sunday. There are some other great cosies entered for the competition and they can be seen on Facebook, click here. If in the vicinity of Dun Laoghaire on Sunday drop in to the craft fair, admission is free.
Till next time, Ali.

  3. OOh Ali - she's amazing - such incredible details...I love her hair, the colours in her beautifully draped shawl, fab face, pleated skirt and her teenytiny fingers! Hope she raises a good pot of money at the auction. Well done Ali
