On Finding My Niche – To You, My Readers

On Finding My Niche – To You, My Readers

Late last night I started writing. I didn't have an objective in mind, it's just a story that should be told and read by others when I am ready to share it. I cried as I typed both from joy and grief but I also smiled.  It was difficult but that piece is easily one of...

Tour de Fleece 2017

Tour de Fleece 2017

This morning it's quiet and you can hear the birds singing around the cottage. This is the time of day that I love to plan ahead. If you have been following along with the podcast episodes then you have heard me mention this year's Tour de Fleece or TDF for short. I...

In Stills – The Cottage Garden Tour

In Stills – The Cottage Garden Tour

Today's post is a little bit different. I have been hiding from my garden for a while and instead of writing a lengthy post I took a series of images of anything that caught my eye this week in the garden. I think my favourite is the wild rose and potatoes growing...

Indulgence

Indulgence

I guess with a title like that, this post could take you anywhere, a series of images of hand dyed yarns, a look at my wheels and looms or simply lots of images of chocolate in all its forms; this is not that post.   This post is selfish and all about me. It's...

Blacker Yarns -Samite, Driftwood & Fade and Flip.

Blacker Yarns -Samite, Driftwood & Fade and Flip.

This week I thought I could take a step back to the craft side of things and have a catch up on all things knitting related. Edinburgh Yarn Festival seems like a lifetime ago and the Blacker Pod KAL even further. Why am I mentioning this? Well, I took part in the...

Knit-Working: World Wide Knit In Public Day

Knit-Working: World Wide Knit In Public Day

  Earlier this week I wrote a post on community and the difference that Bloom Fringe made in one weekend. Today I wanted to highlight the craft community; I said in that post, that what you do with your life matters, the choices that you make help to build a...

Reflections of Community

Reflections of Community

This June bank holiday I had the privilege of attending Bloom Fringe in Dublin Castle. I was expecting a fun outdoor experience where people came together and left inspired to try something new in their garden or whatever outdoor space they had. What I left with was...

The Leap into Full Time Blogging

The Leap into Full Time Blogging

  That's a really nice idea, right? Being at home and working full time on content creation. Picture me sitting at an old desk with the sun streaming in from my beautiful manicured garden with tended raised beds that support us in food throughout the year.  At...

Commit to Knit in June

Commit to Knit in June

As the summer rolls in I aways get excited about lazy sunny days and knitting and spinning outdoors. I dream about World Wide Knit in Public Day (WWKIP) which is held on June 10th this year, as I get to sit and chat in person with all the knitters I get to interact...

Finding Your Voice

Finding Your Voice

That title suggests that writing online would be easy but those three words are highly deceptive. You all know that I have been struggling with my inner voice and have been trying to work out what I want to say in a way that is meaningful for myself but also for all...
