Ireland hopping

Hi everyone, I am doing a guest post on Sarah @ Fairyface designs blog today as part of her {Sew} Get Started tutorials. Sarah kindly invited me to do a tutorial to make a mini quilt using half square triangles.
I was just doing a little bit of research on Cork which is where Sarah lives, and found that in the next county to where she lives, there is a place called Lismore. I live in another city named Lismore, in NSW, Australia which was possibly named after the Lismore in Ireland as it has fairly similar scenery. Lismore (Ireland) and Lismore (Australia) are twin cities
I really want to travel to Ireland one day but for now this is as close as I can get to being there. So please pop on over to Sarahs to see the tutorial.

If you have come here from Fairy Face designs to have a look round, thanks for stopping by. 
PS: I have used fabrics from Denyse Schmidts' "Daisy Mae" range.
