I just received some very exciting news and I was literally bursting like an overripe fruit to tell you all!
A rather innocuous looking white envelope dropped into the post box this morning from the Royal Dublin Society. I opened with shaking hands - I knew what was inside, it was either very very good news or really really bad news...
Luckily, as you can probably already tell, it was really really good news!
I entered my Shetland Sampler Pi shawl into a National Craft Competition in May, in June I brought her all wrapped up delicately to the RDS to be judged (my poor baby) and now I find that she is deemed good enough on a National level to be exhibited at the Dublin Horse Show in August!
Unladylike squeal of unrestrained joy, lalala...
So if you are in Dublin during August and you fancy taking a peek for yourself at the wondrous crafty and artistic talent that this country has to offer, please drop in, I've listed the dates and times below:-
RDS Concert Hall, Merrion Road, Dublin
Friday August 10th from 10am to 5pm (free of charge to the public)
RDS Discover Ireland Dublin Horse Show August 15th to 19th (entry fee applies)
