I want to go to Ireland; Mountmellick, Laois, Ireland, to be exact. I know that seems pretty specific, but I do have a reason and it all ties into that night of no sleep. Mountmellick was the location a white-on-white embroidery style was developed by Johanna Carter. It is beautiful to look at and amazing to work, so I am told.
And so it begins, I am going to go to Mountmellick, Laois, Ireland, to learn an embroidery style. I have no idea where or how to start this journey hence this blog. I am going to document my thoughts, searches, questions, answers and whatever comes along the way. Won’t you join me along the way?
(additional note after this post was posted: Scott and I were discussing the blog and I decided that this should be more than just about my preparations for Ireland. We want this to be a blog about the passion we have for the travel, music and embroidery.)
