I have had a very busy – and very satisfying – week of lawn bowling. There were numerous matches throughout the week, culminating in the finals yesterday. If you really want to see the full programme it’s posted on the Irish Lawn Bowls website. Check out the Ladies Singles final. J. McKee lost but she was a “happy loser”. I put up a good fight and was delighted to be awarded the prize for Lady Bowler of the Week. Home in the garden displaying my prizes.
My schedule is still pretty busy though and leaving little time for knitting. We are getting ready for family visitors and I am going to music camp for a week so I have to practice playing my recorders.
That’s about all I have to report on the knitting front.
Last week was the annual Dublin Horse Show. And each year during this week there is an exhibition of outstanding Irish craft work. The Horse Show is over for another year, but the RDS National Crafts Competition Exhibition is still there to be seen at the RDS (Royal Dublin Society). It will eventually go on tour. I went today to view the items – it was marvelous. And it was good to see a number of pieces by friends in the Irish Guild of Weavers Spinners & Dyers.
The Sea Stallion is due in Dublin tomorrow – will try to get some photos.
Finally, current reading – The Monarch of the Glen by Compton MacKenzie. lst published in 1941.
