The grass really is greener

In Ireland!

I began my tour in Ireland, and so I end at the beginning. Such a beautiful country. I spent alot of my time wishing my family were with me as my boys would have loved the ruins and history this place is steeped in.
I flew into Dublin and was met by my wonderful host Holly I had such fun in Dublin and the workshop participants were such a great group, full of Irish humour.. We were working on wraps and closures and were very busy for the 2 days. I haven't got many photos of the finished items I'm afraid, but some along the way.

I had some time to travel a few days before heading to my next workshop so I went through Kilkenny, Kells, Cashel and Galway. I managed to have a coffee with Nicola Brown in Kilkenny. So much fun to chat and we were together again in Denmark. I have made so many new friends.

I love this last shot. No Parking!!!

From Galway I drove to Dingle. So picturesque. Here we had a 3 day workshop on mosaic wearables hosted by Sharon I have had some wonderful times with all my hosts on this trip and I want to say to all of them a huge thankyou for bringing me into their lives. Below are some shots of the workshop and Dingle.

This was a cheese I bought. Really delicious!!! Really!

This one is still being added to!!

The sleeping giant

This whole trip has been a wild ride for me. Thanks to all who were a part of it and I hope to be able to visit again soon ( the wheels are already in motion there)

Thanks for all those pictures ! I miss Ireland so much ! I love Scotland too, especially the Highlands and Ben Nevis which colours are a great inspiration.
But not as much as your pictures of your felting sessions, the colours are great and they are lessons by themselves, the way the fibers are led is very clear and inspiring.

I really do hope you will come again to Ireland because I missed your workshops! I just moved from Austria to Ireland in June and it was a to busy time to be that creative :)

(Hope I'll have the opportunity to meet you again next time around ;-) !!!)

it's been a while since i was briefly in Ireland [1976!]
but your lovely atmospheric photos are tempting me there...
especially if they have cheeses that look like stones!
