A few months ago Leiny graduated with a first class degree in Visual Art Practice.
Duane also graduated on the same day, you can see his work here, a double celebration for two amazing people who are wonderful artists. During the summer they both had an exhibition of their work "Space in Converse" as part of the Eigse Festival in Carlow. You can see the photos and read about it here on a post I put on this blog earlier this year.
Leiny has accepted a place at a University in England to do a Masters in Printmaking starting in two weeks. I could not be more proud of her.
It has been snowing and freezing at Chez Margie and all across Eastern Ireland since last saturday. We never get snow like this here in Ireland, it usually lasts a day or so. I braved it to work the last two days, but today I am happy to be home with Mr. Margie and Leiny.
Leiny took the dogs out for a walk, they look so sleek against the snow. The countryside looks like a picture postcard.
Mr. Margie, made hot lard feed for the chickens and the birds in the garden. We have about 6-8 inches of snow.
Leiny was going to make a snowman but the snow would not make a good firm shape.
We are so lucky to have the Landys. Mr. Margie has been helping the neighbours and is going up to Wolfhill to take my parents to the shops.
Leiny and I are going to spend some time crafting in the studio. Click here to see the crafting. What are you doing today?
I am a community worker I was working full time until my cancer diagnosis in October 2013. I have been interested in crafts all my life. I am always knitting or sewing. I love the different seasonal crafts and spending time with family and friends.
