tell thy hearts own true wish in flowers.....

not sure where I am going at the moment ...but getting flowers like these and having good friends and family sure is a help (a bit of sun would do the trick)

I have some of the life drawing books too, tommorow I will post up the images.
That IS me in the green hat ! I still make special one-off creations , never forgetting the skills I learnt as a milliner all those years ago!
Thanks to Penny who fell in love with my frida kahlo-ish jacket and skirt which she bought for her birthday on saturday.
I really enjoyed making it.
I hope everyone is getting a little sun . I went completely mad working in my garden yesterday and today feel about 130 years old !

is it that time already ! half of June is GONE FOREVER

I have been away for a week in England as my dad was 75 and had a party.
We had a time away experience , visiting family and pottering around generally .
Even after our exciting day in London , the knitting ladies came out top again ,these wonderful women come to their stall,come wind come rain , ages between 78-85 spending their time very fruitfully making blankets , dolls , knitted clothes and a full range of doll size knitted boots ....they are beyond words (love them all)

I am between worlds at the moment in most aspects of my life ....I quite like it though :)

the market feels my love

I have to say , I really enjoyed my market stall last saturday , its always been there , a loyal friend that has supported me to be an artist, given me countless amazing inspirations and chance meetings and kept me going when all else faded.
It is totally up to me to make exactly what I feel like at the time and at the moment that is nice cardigans and hats and this necklace ...oh and a few chic french 1950's records for balance :)
It is an ongoing love affair of twenty years and I greatly appreciate it .

summer , fresh mint tea, musing in general and being grateful for friends

I went to see my show for the first time since the super busy opening.
It was good to actually see the work and I was accompanied by my best friends forever lovely Pat and my youngest daughter Méabh.
We took lots of photos and I made a bit of a film which I want to edit really nicely and put up on my blog just as soon as I can.
Afterwards we went for the most gorgeous fresh mint tea, hot chocolate and complimentary tasting cakes at the lovely Janice and Dermotts Pantry and Corkscrew who did such a fine job at my opening.
