Hello Beastie friends! I hope you all had a spooktacular Hallowe'en! We've been busily stitching away here in Beastie Towers, so it's lucky for you that Paddy and Plunkett have been in touch... Otherwise you would have been treated to a series of pictures of me at my craft table today. After their recent adventures … Continue reading Paddy and Plunkett – The Hunt for Red October
Hello there Beastie friends! Erk, not such good news from Dublin this week... As of last night, all of Ireland has moved to the highest level of Covid-19 restrictions to try to get our case numbers back under control. But it's not all doom and gloom! Autumn (or Fall) is here in all its glory, … Continue reading Beastie Fall Festivities!
Hey there Beastie friends! It was a bit wild and wintry when I woke up this morning, so I thought that today's post could maybe bring a splash of autumnal colour to a January Tuesday! Continuing on from last week's London-based post, we'll follow Explorer Beastie as he steps off the road less travelled and … Continue reading Autumnal Colours – Explorer Beastie at Kew
Hello Beastie friends! Since the sun was peeking out between the autumn leaves earlier, I thought it might be fun to head out for a seasonal wander... And guess what? A Beastie stowed away in my camera bag! Well, it's an occupational hazard in this line of business. Hi there, Woolly Jumper Beastie! Hey, your … Continue reading Woolly Autumn Wonderland!
Yes, I know I'm jumping the gun a little here! But over the last couple of days, the cooler breezes and suddenly shorter days have been signalling that the season is about to turn. And much as I enjoyed our very un-Irish Irish summer this year, I am SO ready for September! Autumn has long … Continue reading Hello September!
So, the clocks have gone back and the evenings are starting noticeably earlier every day. And, after a slightly rainy start to the autumn here in Ireland, the sun finally showed his face - fortunately at a time when Explorer Beastie and I were away in the countryside for a couple of days! The bright … Continue reading Explorer Beastie’s Wintry Ramble!
Oh, poor Explorer Beastie! We were hoping to get out and about this week, but both the weather and my work schedule were against us... Still, at least we have some great photos from previous years to look back on. I hope you all enjoy this trip down memory lane as much as we did! … Continue reading Autumn Fun With Explorer Beastie!
As you may have noticed, I've been having fun recently putting together a couple of Hallowe'en-themed Beasties. And regular readers will already have met this charming Frankenbeastie on Tuesday... but he wasn't the first seasonal monster I've ever made! Over the last couple of days, I've been chatting to Ivonne at Aurian's Blog about Hallowe'en … Continue reading Flashback Friday – My First Beastie Hallowe’en
A couple of weeks ago, Explorer Beastie and I had a chance to head out West and enjoy a little quiet time. Autumn is far and away my favourite season, and I'd argue that the Irish countryside looks its best at this time of year. We definitely got more than our fair share of "mists … Continue reading Explorer Beastie in Autumn
I thought I'd make a monster to celebrate the arrival of my favourite season. In Ireland, the seasons rarely behave as they're supposed to... mild spring days, balmy summer evenings and winter snows are the exception, rather than the rule. But for some reason, Autumn always delivers. The leaves fall off the trees, the days … Continue reading Autumn Beastie
