It's lovely to be back in blogland once more. Naughty blogger has kept me away far to long.
As some of you may know, I've had months of on/off problems with blogger, hense the reason for my lack of recent blogging, and my lack of comments on your lovely blogs too.
Anyway, it seems this week, we have become friends again, and blogger has decided to be kind, and not only let me post, but comment again too, hurray!!!!
So without further ado, I shall move swiftly on to all things crafty. I wanted to share some lovely pics taken on my recent visit home to Dublin, did I say recent? well actually, it was August, gosh! where did that time go?!
The pics include some lovely views of Dublin taken on a family doggy walk, yes, all four of them!! These pics were taken on Killiney Hill, a beauty hot spot in Dublin, and a big favourite for doggy walkers :)
I've also included some pics of some scrummy owls created by Marcus and Louise (my brother and sister) just love these!!!! And have copied the pattern to make some of my own too! Oh, and must just mention by Mum's lovely granny square throw in the background, she's a utter whizz at these, and they are so lovely and colourful, yep, I suppose when you think about it, we are a bit of a crafty lot, lol!
Finally, I have added some pics of Lou's amazing art work. My sister Louise is amazingly tallented, and not only has a fashion degree, but also ran a popular craft market in Dublin for some time. The detail on some of her artwork is simply amazing!! You might even recogise some kitchen utencils along the way, lol!
Also, look out for the fabric and wool details in her shadow box paintings, all handmade and died by Louise, simply amazing! even if not your to your taste.
Anyway, I'll stop rambling, and let you take a peek.
I hope you enjoy looking through my blog. I love all things crafty, and adore playing with paper. My latest obsession is my sewing machine, I soooo love making bunting, there's just something so happy about it, it makes me smile :) When I'm not crafting, I'm busy looking after my two boys, aged 11 and 8, plus our latest addition to the family, our bouncy dog Barney, which is like having another baby in the house again, he can be such hard work, but ofcourse we do adore him too!:)
Thanks for dropping by, please leave a comment, and ofcourse if you have a blog too, I'd love to hear about it.
Suzie xxxxxxx :)
