Due to internet problems and general life-stuff, I have been very quiet of late. I have been making a few things, but I just haven't gotten round to talking about them. I've just been chilling out the past few weeks, catching up on reading and walking. We've had a lovely September, and October so far (touch wood), and it has been lovely to be able to go for little walks every day.
a bit obsessed about crocheting coral for a while in 2008. In fact bored the pants of anyone who would listen to me...but I have just heard some news that will make my family and friends groan.... The Margaret Wertheim, the mathematician who came up with the whole Hyperbolic crocheted thing, is doing a workshop in Dublin, at the Science Gallery, on 24th October, with a view to creating an Irish Coral Reef!!
Can you imagine how excited I was to hear, I immediately booked tickets, though I haven't figured out about babysitters, getting there, etc, I don't care. I am not missing this for the world!! I have to laugh at the fact that in my enthusiasm for coral in 2008 I emailed the Science Gallery about the reef, and suggested maybe we should get one together, but got no reply... Maybe Ireland wasn't ready for such a venture back then, but it is definitely ready for one now!! The proposed Irish Reef will take place alongside the International Coral Reef sometime in Spring 2010.
So anyone that can barely crochet, or crochet well, believe me, it is so much fun, and easy to make, you could come along too. Tickets are free, but places are limited, you just have to go onto the Science Gallery website, and click GET TICKETS. Already a few Ravelry heads, have signed up. www.sciencegallery.com/events
So be prepared to be bored silly for the next 8/9months with obsessive coral making, that I have only just recovered from. would you believe I was just about to throw out my big bag of coral that's been sitting there since last years Electric Picnic! I didn't know what to do with it....but now I do....
