I’m SO EXCITED that the wonderful Dawn Edwards has actually booked her flights to Ireland this morning, she will be arriving in Dublin early on Tuesday 17th and staying here at Clasheen from then until the end of the month!!! We are going to have such a fantastic time. Chrissie Day, great friend and co-author of ‘From Felt to Friendship’ will be joining us for some of the time and it will be so fantastic that Dawn and Chrissie will actually meet in the flesh rather than ‘seeing each other’ over the internet during our regular chats via Skype!
As soon as I have some provisional dates sorted for our felt hat workshops I will post them to the blog and also set up an event page on Facebook. Please bear with me, realistically this may not be for a couple of weeks due to the frantic run up to Christmas especially since I am working towards 2 more days in Borris Market as well trying to whip my house into some kind of shape yet again! I won’t have to travel up and down from Dublin so much now because Mum came home to Enniscorthy on Friday evening and is in very good form. She is having some more blood tests etc. this week but overall is making an absolutely amazing recovery from her recent serious health scare.
OK, I’m rushing off now because Carmen is on her way over and I need to clear enough space in the kitchen for her to get in the door, it’s lashing outside so I also want to stoke the stove. Winter has finally arrived at Clasheen!
Wow I do love that hat.
Thank you so much Fiona.
Oh. I wish i could come over. I will really try to. I have to meet Dawn.
Oh, Kirsten…So hope that you are able to come…I’d love to finally meet you, too;-)
We would love you to come too Kirsten!!!
How fabulous for you both …..there will be a felting frenzy at Clasheen. Wishing you and yours all the best for the coming year. Many thanks for an always entertaining and inspiring blog.
Thanks Sheila, it will be wonderful to have Dawn here!
would love to come and make it a foursome. Alas
Would love for you to come, too, Pam!!!
Oh Pam, we’d have such good fun, wish you could come too!!! I wouldn’t need to feel a bit guilty cracking open a few bottles of red!
Good morning Nicola and all,
I am so excited to be travelling to Ireland with my brand new passport! Will be a great way to break it in;-) Nicola you forgot to mention that I will be looking a bit worse for the wear as I don’t know that I’ll sleep a wink between now and then. I am over-the-moon happy! Can’t wait!
Oh Dawn and Nicola
I will not sleep either with excitement —we will all just sleep and get no talking in.
Have a wonderful time together! I hope it is better than you even hope!
