'Light is Time'


I've mentioned in a previous post about some work in doing in the studio at the moment (read about it here). I've been doodling away, drawing old watch parts over the last few weeks. So, imagine my delight when I came across this installation on the interweb!

 blog awards ireland

I've just found out I've been shortlisted for Blog Awards Ireland! Am delighted to be amongst such esteemed company. This years award is being kindly sponsored by Craftbay, a portal for a lovely range of Irish made goodies. I was lucky enough to be able to go to the Awards ceremony 2 years ago, it was a great night, but sadly, probably wont make it up there this year...

The Gift

I don't often blog about books, which is actually surprising, since I'm a total bookworm, and obsessively collect craft books. I rarely buy new books, I find them far too expensive, and there's almost too much choice! A strange complaint, I know, but I find most bookshops, like yarn shops, overwhelming. (I love finding a good book in a charity/secondhand shop, it makes the find so much more special, when you find it amongst trashy fiction!). So, I though I'd start writing about the books that have influenced me the most, either directly, as in a practical craft books, or indirectly inspiring!
