Mr. Margie and I attended Seun and Daniel's wedding yesterday at the Victory centre in Dublin. The sun was shining (a rare occurance this year), the newly wed couple looked absolutely beautiful. I wore my "Coast" dress, with a "Micheal H" fascinator, and a "Primark/Penneys" coat. I was pleased to meet so many of Mr. Margie's work colleagues, all of whom made me feel so welcome.
Earlier this week I met Jonnet Middleton at her "Future menders" exhibit during the Fringe Festival in Dublin. I spent a pleasant half hour darning with her while she was interviewed by International journalists. I also met Sheila from the Crafts Council of Ireland, a felt maker and mender. It was a real pleasure to listen to Jonnet's philosophy, she has not bought anything for the last three years and believes in mending and making do. She is inspired by her 94 year old grandmother. She took 500 knitted pandas to china earlier this year as a guest of the Chinese government and presented them to an orphanage, click here to see a video of her panda project.
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.
