Thursday Tunes

I am lucky, extremely lucky....

I love live music and I happen to be friends with some of the most amazing musicians in Ireland, I'd even go as far as to say the world.  But we all know how hard it is to make it in the recording world so most if not all of these musicians you will never have heard of.

So each week I'm going to post a video from one of my amazingly talented friends and let you decide for yourself.

The first video I'm choosing is a cover.
D-Riculous All Stars are a cover band consisting of David Griffin (Guitar/Vox), Phil Stanton (Drums) and Phil Daily (Bass).  This video was filmed in Sweeney Mongrels bar in the centre of Dublin City, our local, the best pub around for live music and filled with friendly faces.  It is a cover of one of my favourite songs, 'Grace' by Jeff Buckley and it gives me a warm fuzzy feeling inside every time I watch it.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I do....

Mini sword

Currently I am obsessed with 'Game of Thrones' an epic series of books by author George R.R. Martin. Now also a great TV series on HBO.
In honour of this I have made a miniature sword forged from a nail.
I am going to share a little make and do once I have access to the tools required again but here is some pictures till that happens.

Alice in Funderland

So one of my 28 before 29 plans was to go see more plays and that I have been doing.
Last night I went to see Alice in Funderland in Dublin's Abbey Theatre.  A modern take on Lewis Carroll's 'Alice in Wonderland'. Alice a Corkonian in Dublin for her sisters hen night chases Warren down the proverbial rabbit hole.

It was quiet long but that would be the only downside to the whole show.  The performers, set, costumes and songs were all brilliant and thoroughly enchanting.

This review from the Irish Times describes it better then I ever could :)

If anyone in Ireland gets a chance to see this, grab that chance with both hands.

My First Sale!!

So I have been busy crocheting and I made my first sale :)
It felt so good that someone actually wanted to buy something that I made and I was very proud of the finished product.  Here's the picture of the final blanket.

I already have a few more blankets on the production line so expect more pictures, I also need to get my arse into gear and get my Etsy selling shop up and running.
