I wish I was…

I wish I was in Carrickfergus. So goes the song.

Walking in the sunshine and perhaps watching a ferry as it leaves the port of Belfast through the lough on its journey to the open sea and Scotland. Looking across the stretch of water to the south side of the Lough and the landfall of Co Down. Talking to passersby as they exercise their legs or those of their dogs, while these little fellows call their greeting.

Carrickfergus also holds an Aladdins Cave for me in the form of Craftwoman Fabrics. It is a Fabric Warehouse at Kilroot, yet without a Website, where a very friendly staff are helpful and willing to share their knowledge in any area of sewing or needlecraft.

Today I had planned to visit but my plans are twarted once again. Today is not one where I feel like driving so I content myself with staying home and playing with fabric, measuring tape and pins. I am trying to stay away from the computer for a few hours, but normal reading, commenting and general playing should resume in a day or so.
