CREATIVITY, CULTURE

No prizes, but a winning night!

Well, The Patchwork Quill didn't pick up any gongs at the Blog Awards Ireland bash on 4 October, but it honestly didn't take the shine off attending a cracking awards night as a finalist. My boyfriend Andy and I travelled down to Kildare for the bash, and stayed at a wonderful B&B called Lotus Lodge.… Continue reading No prizes, but a winning night!

Finally, here it is - the PQ post about Culture Night Lisburn! I'm sorry it's a fortnight after the event, but what with the beautiful madness of the night, excited preparations for the Blog Awards Ireland ceremony and a stress-tastic couple of weeks in my new day job, I am, quite frankly, a husk of a woman.

I spent two glorious Saturdays (last Saturday and Saturday 23 August) learning to knit, courtesy of the wonderful Emma Whiteside of Top Floor Art and now I am well and truly hooked. (If it'd been crochet, that would have been… Continue reading Knit addicted, I could quit any time…

Visiting Hours: Razz My Berries Rockabilly Bash!

Last Friday night saw Lisburn's R-Space Gallery playing host to a low-down, dirty, rock n' roll razzmatazz!
