Today at the Turnip House

We're open every Saturday and Sunday these days (and during the week, by appointment). 

St. Patrick's weekend was our busiest so far this year, great craic, lots of chat, and a 'full house' at times. It was brilliant.

The next weekend we were snowed in (or out!) and saw nobody. Easter was better, but the weather was still not great, and many  did not venture up to the wintry hills. Don't blame them.

Today was wonderful! lots of visitors from the off, a 'Happy Birthday' song and cake; old friends calling round to the Gallery, some for the first time;  - and a felt workshop with our great pals Caroline, Paul and Georgie.

Busy all day makes us happy bunnies. 

Going for a lie down now. 

But not until you've seen the amazing work created today!
