International Quilt Festival in Ireland

This June 2012 is the first ever (annual) International Quilt Festival in Ireland. Check out their website for information on tickets to the festival, accommodation packages, entry info if you want to enter your quilts (see all the different categories for entries), and classes that you can take. Be sure and read about each quilt entry, whether you want to enter or even go there, because it sounds like a wonderful magical journey into each quilt exhibit that you enter.

If anyone attends this show, I would love to see your photographs. You can email me your online album link (like Webshots, Flickr, Snapfish, etc.) or email me some photos.

Even if you don't attend the show you can enter quilts, or Christmas ornaments, etc. See each catagory for details. Plus there are cash prizes too for the best in each catagory.

Take a Hula Hoop & Some Tee Shirts...

and what do you get? A really cool round rug! Check out this great tutorial on how to make this rug, from the folks at Disney's Family Fun Magazine~
What a great way to use up old tee shirts, or outgrown shirts from your kids or grandkids.

Or how about making a basket using an Embroidery Hoop?
