Overlapping the photos in the darkroom, my favourite.

Patchwork Complete

I have finished it at last and it is all ready for me to take to university. I have been wishing it was a little cold so I could use it now! I am also happy as it is the beginning of Autumn, I love everything about it, the colours, the scenery, cosy clothes, wolly hats, cups of tea (Well always, but they are even better in Autumn/Winter)..:)
Today-the last of the packing, I have almost finished yet my room is still full, it looks like I haven't packed at all... moving back in over next summer will be fun!

Patchwork in progress

Over summer I decided to make a patchwork quilt to take with me to university, a summer project of sorts, I have loads of material bits and bobs so there are many different colours and patterns included, I am pleased with it so far :)

Other strange news, I now have the three aliens from Toy Story living in my room...

A trip down memory lane

I recently visited Ireland with my brother and Dad to see relatives, we stayed in the house my Dad grew up in in the middle of the countryside surrounded by farms and fields, it was a really nice change of scenery. The area where my Dad grew up is known as Battlehill, there is a four mile walk around the hill, we always walk around and he shows us where he used to play football and cricket as a child, his old schools, places he got into trouble etc. Its always nice to hear the stories his adventures and mischeif.

Last year when just my brother and Dad were visiting Ireland they were walking around one day and exploring when they came across a house my Dad used to go to when he was younger, this house being a little further away from where my Dad's house is. He used to go there with his cousins to play pool with friends that lived there. So when he came across the house he was intrigued to look inside as it had been abandoned, to his complete surprise, they discovered that alot of things had been left behind, including the pool table he used to play on, now a wreck but still there. They discovered old china sets, a television, a coat still hanging up, toys, my Dad was amazed and it made him reminiscent of the happy days he had spent there.

So on our recent visit we went back as I really wanted to see the house for myself, I found it really incredible to look around and a little eerie, hard to imagine someone living in it now.

Old china.

Trees and plants growing into the house.

The roof has caved into the pool table since my brother and Dad discovered it.

It was tricky to navigate around!

The coat on the hanger has been there for over 30 years now.

A newspaper from Friday June 15th 1956, my Dad was only 2 months old then!

A very old television.

Wallpaper still up.

As a celebration for the end of the year and finishing all of our work, two of my friends and me decided to save up and go to Paris! It was very sunny and humid, we packed so much it as we were only there for two nights, we went up the Eiffel Tower, on a boat trip, to the Louvre, theres so much to look at you could spend days there... we met some real characters on the way it was a really fun adventure :)

The final series of 66 Postcards made from all of the collected information in my journals, all about memory and language, why people are the way they are, what triggers memories, sayings, stories, photographs, drawings. I came across alot of handwritten postcards, letters and notes, with messages of celebration and stories. I really like this way of communication and hope it is kept up even with all of this technology! I really enjoyed this project it provided many comical stories and a chance to reminisce, these ideas and project could continue forever :)
