Site visit to the gorgeous botanic gardens

On Saturday I went for a site visit to the National Botanic Gardens in Dublin.  This beautiful space, free for the public to enjoy (safe parking 2 Euro) is going to be the venue for ‘Sculpture in Context’, a site specific exhibition that takes place throughout September and part of October this year.  Proposals need to be in by Friday of this week at the latest and at this stage I am really not sure if I will be finished in time.  I hate being late with anything but with Craft in the Classroom and a few other projects that I have been trying to put to bed I really could do with another week to get things together.  Yesterday I spent the day felting at Carmen’s again and this morning worked on another sample piece which I had wanted to take photos of today.  Just my luck, the wind was SO strong that I couldn’t photograph outside at all and the light inside was NOT what I needed.

Tomorrow morning I am going to have another go at things but if I am not successful then I will have to re-evaluate as the submission really needs to be in the post by the afternoon.  Off now to do a bit of housework (Yeuck) in order to free my time up somewhat tomorrow!

  1. Gorgeous photo of the Bird of Paradise. That’s my husband’s favorite flower. He gave me one way back when we were dating.

    Good luck with the housekeeping. Mine looks as though a tornado went through it (unfortunately the tornado was me!) With all you have going on, I’d just put the housework on hold…The dust will still be waiting in another week. Of course, with that as my philosophy, you can see why my house is in its current state!

    Can’t wait to see photos of all your projects in the works.
