The living room has had a complete makeover, gallery white on the walls and all the mexican pine furniture painted satinwood white. New crisp white curtains on the door and window. Clean and fresh for the Autumn. Gog and Magog were dusted down and inspired the colour scheme. Leiny's Interim exhibition prints were hung. It was a welcome distraction during the unseasonally cool summer we are experiencing.
Fresh Melon with lemon balm leaves (melissa officinalis) and nasturtium flowers set the tone for a summer supper. Of course every Irish home serves new potatoes and fresh garden peas for main course at this time of year.
Leiny was busy in the afternoon with last of the season fresh strawberries
creating Strawberries and Cream cupcakes from the Primrose bakery recipe book.
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.
