Some Irish Craftiness

As well as selling some stuff yesterday, I also did a bit of Christmas shopping.  Doing my bit to shop local and support Irish artisans.

First up is a lovely table mat by Louise Hillary of Stone Weavers (no website yet, but you can email stoneweavers@gmail.com for enquires).  They're basically just flat stones on a carpet base but they look so good.  They'd probably be a bit heavy for posting overseas but if you're in Ireland do look her up.
Next up is a little pram toy by Sarah, of Sweensie.  I actually know her from knitting in Celbridge.  She has an Etsy shop with some box bags, snack bags and mug cozies.  Perfect for Christmas pressies!

Last up is a gorgeous little glass ornament by Ruth Galvin (no dedicated website but you can see her profile on the Craft Council of Ireland's website)  Her pieces are beautiful and this little angel will be hanging up all year round, not just for Christmas.
