Making The Best of It

We are moving out this weekand have had plenty of snow to help us on our way (!)

Perhaps someone's trying to tell us something!

The Turnip House is emptying out bit by bit.

On our way to the Recycling centre, Charlie makes the best of it

Last photos from the Turnip House

Despite the overnight snow , we still had visitors on the last day.

Some very kindly agreed to having their photos taken for us to post on the blog!

Charlie was, as ever, keen to share the lemon drizzle cake!

Here's a selection from the comments in the visitor's book:

You've no idea how much we'll miss our walk up to the Turnip House. Please don't be long in opening the Turnip House 2'

'We've enjoyed all our breaks here and we look forward to having soup and cake in your new place'
A lovely end to an era and great sentiments to send us on our way!! Thank you!

21 February 2010 Last Day

Well, we woke up to a magnificent snowfall - about 15cm or so!

The Mountains look Spectacular, but will be hard to get to today!

This is the last day that we will be running the workshop at Turnip House, we move out at the end of next week, and on to pastures new.

Charlie waits for visitors!

Felt Making Workshop

Elaine ran another great day felting on Saturday; some really nice people all the way from Larne.

We will still be doing workshops, held in one of the nearby venues.

Here is a sample of the work created:

Sunday 14th - Turnip House

Valentine's Day; the penultimate Sunday at Trassey.

A good busy day, plenty of craic.

Quote of the day, 'If you offer lemon drizzle cake like that. then they'll all follow you to your new place!' - This from a 'first timer,' but hopefully a new convert

Time to settle down for the night now!

We have exciting plans to develop Turnip House further, based on, and building up from our happy experiences here.

All being well, we will not be too far from the Mournes.

You will still see us at the popular food and craft fairs
