We finally got to spend some time up at the cottage last weekend. The weather was glorious which is unusual so we brought Mam with us to give her a little break away from the city. Here she is relaxing by Garadice lake, it was so peaceful. We will bring our fishing gear next time.
More lake pics
I got a present of some money and spent it all on craft books. I will have to live to be one hundred to make all the lovely things in them. Below is a "Green" one with some great ideas for recycling stuff.
And a long dress for me made from a duvet cover!
close up of the yoyos, I used old buttons and a broken necklace to decorate them
And I made one for a baby too.
and another one
Next one was taken in Carrick-on-Shannon. It shows Angie in front of the smallest church in Ireland. Angie is saying "Do I look big in front of this?"
and here she is attempting a breaking and entering of an old abandoned schoolhouse near Ballinamore
Angie found these fabulous 30's or forties knitting patterns for me in her MIL's house. I love the hairstyles....
Angie and Ed threw a barbie on the deck of the Old Schoolhouse and we ate ourselves silly. Look at all that food!
This is one side of it today mid way through my tidy up. Oh how I love to potter in the garden on a sunny day!
I never tire of looking at and taking pictures of the view from the cottage. It looks so wonderful with the gorse in full bloom.....
