right as a trivet

I bought my teapot a present from Northern Ireland, so it now has a lovely iron trivet to go with its felted cosy. Not much yarn purchasing happened but lots of other fun stuff did.
Unfortunately I had to miss the trip to the Ulster American Folk Park (had to stay in and finish my homework) but DrM took the camera and somehow thought I might be interested in the string

In between doing homework,visiting family and seeing the sights, I made some progress on my green cardigan and took lots of photos of flowers

and came perilously close to taking up a new hobby. Derry’s Tower Museum had an amazing display of quilts, and there’s a brilliant quilting shop in the Craft Village.

I might have to add quilting to spinning and dressmaking on my list of “crafts I am going to take up if I ever graduate”.
