Both my parents have a day today. Celebrating my dad, who taught me a love of music, how to sew, to measure, saw and mitre to build a decent fence, to play and read music, and to listen. Celebrating my mum, who taught me to cook, to love gardens and nature, how to dress and how to push the envelope, to get things done. .
This is one of my favourite photos of them I have ever taken, on a disposable camera from when I was 13 in Donegal and they came to visit me at Irish college. For anybody who didn't grow up in Ireland, teenagers were sent off to Irish speaking areas known as Gaeltacht to speak Irish exclusively and learn dance and song. Love to them both on this day. Wish I was there to hold nails and tools, or to chop up all the herbs for dinner. 💜
Lots of photos to follow from #aftacon and Minneapolis but I wanted to take a moment to remember. .
This video outlines EXACTLY how I managed what I ate while on holidays. ✅

I feel very lucky that I have the absolute privilege of working and crafting with this wonderful Handwoven Donegal Tweed. Eddie is one of the last of the handweavers in Ireland and has been making beautiful high quality hand woven tweed since the 1960's. Love what you do and you'll never work a day in your life. .
