Well hello there everybody! I hope you all enjoyed the weekend. For any of you who missed Friday's post, I introduced this brand-new family of Beasties... ... But I did also mentioned that there was something special ahead for this bunch of little monsters and their faithful Beastiedog. Something that meant that they needed to … Continue reading In The Frame – A Learning Experience
I might have mentioned it already (once or twice) but May has been a SUPER-busy month here at Beastie Towers! With multiple commissions on the go, our stint at Woollinn last week, and a bit of extra time spent at our local yarn shop, it's a miracle I've had time for anything else! But May … Continue reading The End of Mad May!
Happy Friday, everyone! And it's been a double fun one for us, because we've just spent the day at Woollinn, Dublin's festival of yarn! I was helping out my buddy Diarmuid of S Twist Wool for the day, so there might be a bit of a bias in the photos... Are you spotting a pattern … Continue reading Our Monster Day at Woollinn!
May started this week... and that also heralds the traditional start of summer in Ireland! Now, the weather never feels truly summery until we hit June, but you can't argue with tradition, can you?

It was so nice to see the faces behind some of my favourite … Continue reading Dublin The Beastie Fun!
Hey everybody! I'm just popping in for a very quick "Hello!" today, because I've done the sums and this is definitely the busiest, Beastie-est week of 2017! Last overseas postage dates are looming, and I've booked places at two of Dublin's most popular Christmas markets, so that's my entertainment taken care of for the next … Continue reading It’s The Most Beastie-ful Time Of The Year…
Oh wow, what a week it's been! Isn't it funny how life can be so quiet for a while, and then a whole bunch of things happen all at once? So, although the original purpose of this post was just to share the results of my Beastie calendar poll, I'll get around to that in … Continue reading Good Things Come in Threes…
Aaaah, cherry blossom! When you see those trees turned out in their delicate pink and white flowers, it's usually safe to say that spring has well and truly sprung... Even in Ireland! In St Stephen's Green, right in the centre of Dublin, there's a short walkway by the bandstand that's lined with cherry trees. It's … Continue reading Cherry Nice!
