I have just spent a really busy time down in Cillin Hill setting up for my weekend workshops at the Sheep and Wool Festival (E25 for either a morning or an afternoon session incl materials, a bargain!) as well as bringing down three of Horst’s fabulous garments and collating everything for the presentation girl’s display. Alan’s father may not make the night so if that is the case Carmen has very kindly offered to step in for me on Sunday so that I can drive to Sligo to meet with Alan and be there for the funeral. Now I am heading out again to deliver a comissioned scarf (why did I say I would make it for today???) and then drive to my mother’s house to collect the wool and raw materials for the weekend. Stephanie from The Yarn Room has kindly sponsored the fibre and my sister Suzanne is collecting it in Wicklow on her way down from Dublin to visit my mother. My mother will have roast stuffed loin of pork followed by fresh Wexford strawberries and cream waiting for us, I can hardly wait. Thanks Stephanie, Suzanne and mum!!!
Wow, it sounds as if you have hit the ground running! You must be exhausted from all the travel. Thank goodness you are getting some OPC! (Other People’s Cooking, my favorite)
I’m sorry to hear about Alan’s father. Prayers heading your way for the best outcome…xx All things going well, have a ball at the Sheep and Wool Festival!! I’ll be there next year…
Hope the Sheep and Wool Festival is going well and that the scarf delivery was made without a hitch…Whew!!! Have you even recovered from the time change yet? I can’t believe the busy, busy week that you’ve come back to. You are the queen of time management;-) Glad that your mom is looking out for you to make sure that you have a much needed dinner waiting for you at the end of the day.
Keeping Alan, his dad and family in my thoughts and prayers.
Will pray to the woollen gods for Alan’s father and his whole family. Sending good vibes and hugs your way.
Hope the Kilkenny festival goes well for you. I just came back from a small craft fair in Killimor. Lovely day, lots of people but not many sales. oh well… but I got to meet a husband of a local felt maker! Here in Galway, right in front of my nose! Will have to invite her for a coffee sometime.
All the best,
