I LOVE it! the thing about Morgan and I is that we love Halloween- but not the blood/ horror style, we much prefer a celebration of Autumn instead- cute pumpkins, hay golden leafing etc ... to be honest we are not that thrilled at horror films either - watching someone die a awful and brutal death is not my idea of a good few hours- but thats just me :P so as you can see our pumpkin is done our way and I love the cuteness of it!
Tonight to celebrate my sisters last year of trick or treating the whole family is going out dressed up! My mum will be going as a Witch, Dad as the Grim Reaper, My brother as a Punk Zombie, Morgan as Spiderman! and Me.......well let me show you!
Here I am as Sister Crochet from the Poor Clare Convent
I woke up at 7.30AM this morning and made my outfit on the sewing machine
At least with all the layers I will be nice and warm
Poor Hope did not like all the black!
On Friday the 29th I went up to Dublin with 8 ladies from the stitch'n'bitch group and my sister- to attend the RDS Knitting and Stitching Show- we left Galway at 545AM and traveled by GoBus-
we got into Dublin just before 9AM and Thank goodness for J she knew her way around and took us to a cafe for breakfast
It was a cold and wet morning so a nice cup of hot tea was in order!
what stunning windows!
after breakfast we got the bus to the RDS
E and A
J and K
J, Shauna and Me
Once in I found the stall of Pippa Blue and had to get a shot of the wonderful women running it, Thank you ladies for organizing our tickets xx
Workshops were being run all day
Artists showcased their work on every wall
Taken from second floor, you get a better idea of how big this event was!
How cute is Shauna!!
I found that the yarn was not that cheap so when making my purchases I stuck many to material which was cheaper and prettier then anything I had at home-
we met back up with everyone at 1230 to have lunch, it was here that we finally got to meet up with the other three ladies that came later in the day
K, M and B
we attended the 245 workshop of Ribbon Embroidery
Shauna really did well and kept up, I was so proud as she was the only child there and did better then anyone!
my finished work
Just finished at 5PM
cold and tired we took up a table in the pub across the road
a few hot whiskey's and teas later we were warm and comfy
Me and my sister x
after an hour we made a dash for the bus back to Galway- it was wet and cold and Dublin city was so busy!
Ready to have a sleep home
On Saturday instead of crocheting at the stitch group like usual I decided to work with the ribbons, here is what I made:
I really had such a lovely weekend- and hope all of you did too - whatever your plans have a spooky and safe Halloween xxxx
