Hey there everyone! The sun is shining here in Dublin, and I hope you're all enjoying some fine weather in your part of the world too! It's also nice to see life returning to something like normal in places - here in Ireland certain shops are starting to reopen, and we can now meet in … Continue reading Cookie Beastie Checks In!
Here's wishing all our BeastieBuddies a very happy St Patrick's Day! Hopefully you'll get a chance to raise a glass (or at least a mug of strong tea) sometime today to celebrate all things Irish... Sláinte!
Poor Explorer Beastie hasn't got out and about much recently. In fact, he's been spending an unreasonable amount of time hanging out on my desk, watching me type up the adventures of other Beasties instead! So when I went out last Saturday to somewhere that wasn't Other Work or the supermarket, it only seemed fair … Continue reading Teatime with Explorer Beastie!
It's been a busy couple of days in Beastie Towers... and beyond! On Saturday, we took part in our first market in aaaages, at the Ha'Penny Flea. Because Beasties don't take up much room, we got a really good spot by the front door, so we were able to enjoy a little bit of the … Continue reading Beasties, Beans and Blogging
Aaaah, it's a beautiful day here at Beastie Towers! The sun is shining, the birds really are singing... it couldn't be more perfect for sitting outside with a good book and an ice-cold can of something fizzy. So it's lucky that Coca-Cola Beastie is making his special guest appearance on the BeastieBlog today! The tale … Continue reading Time For A Monster-Sized Snack!

I'll unveil that monster undertaking soon enough, but it seemed a bit much for a Friday... so let's take … Continue reading A Monster Tour of Dublin
In my last post, I introduced Dog Lover Beastie... my biggest, scariest and most challenging Beastie project to date! And although most of my special Beastie requests involve a certain amount of clichéd activities such as thinking outside the box, diversifying my skill set and exploring the potential of my raw materials, sometimes they're as … Continue reading And Now For Something Completely Different…
For some time now, I've been wanting to make a range of Irish Beasties. Of course, my Beasties are already pretty Irish - they are born here, after all. But it always surprises me how little of the yarn we get in this country actually comes from here. And when you have a whole world … Continue reading Oooh! New Beasties!
Well, a little exaggeration never hurt anyone... Many thanks to lovely Roma at Cottage on the Green, who has nominated me for one of these: If you have a minute, check out her blog - it always makes me smile! Anyway, it seems that I have some work to do before I can swan off … Continue reading Liebster Award – it’s like Oscars Night all over again! (Sort of)
