Today I took it out for a photo shoot - just a little different than I usually do. So let me show you lovely places around Galway. Lets start at the beach...
I went down to Blackrock to the diving platform, one of the most beautiful places in Galway. I love this yellow tower and one day I will do the jump (they say you are not allowed to leave Galway before you did the jump).
I am glad the wind did not blew the quilt into the sea so I would have had to do the jump.
After I had a place in mind but I could not get a parking space any close there. Friday might not be the best day to head to town for a photo shooting but you have to use the sunny slots here. So I went to the other side ...
You still can see the Cathedral just not from the spot I wanted it to be. Down at the Corrib you can find this bridge. I am not sure if it is unfinished or it broke one day.
After a short stop at the coffee shop I head of to the last place in Menlo. Actually there is this little ruin next to the bridge but as it started raining I postpone climbing up there with an other quilt on maybe a sunny day?
I am so happy with my new quilt. The last three days when I was hand stitching the binding I could not stop smiling. It is getting terrible cold these days but it was so cosy sitting under my quilt.
So no picnic today but frozen back home. Anyway it is much to wet outside and heard on the radio - I am listening sometimes - that it is going to be stormy and rainy in the West.
This baby went bigger from day to day and so at the end the backing had to be pieced. The binding was made out of the last leftovers I had in dark grey, light grey and blue hand stitched on the back. I love how neat it looks.
