Halloween Holidays are here!

Happy Halloween from all at Apple blossom Barn. I have been busy baking treats for all today, as its lovely to sit by the fire with a cup of tea and something yummy.
The kids are off school and so excited, they are going Trick or Treating tomorrow night.

Isabelle with Willow, Pixie & Rosie

Happy little piggies

We have two new friends here at Apple Blossom Barn, they are Willow and Pixie.
We have them now for about 3 weeks they have settled in really well, apart from the first day they escaped their pen and I had a meltdown.

I had to follow through fields neighbouring farms, the woods they are so fast and impossible to catch, who would have thought a city girl trailing after tiny pigs.
My husband had to come home from work and the naughty escapees were caught.

Now they wander in vegetable garden mouching about they run around with the dogs it is hilarious to watch.

Patchwork Heaven

Well I am learning how to make Patch work quilts and love it.
My teacher Mogs McDonnell is fantasic. She teaches her class in her Barn conversion which is just behind her Hansel and Gretel little thatched cottage. She is like a mother hen
guiding us all and she keeps us so well fed, lovely homemade soups and stews, freshly
made cake and bread and with her wood burning stove, it is Patchwork heaven.

Welcome to Apple Blossom Barn

Hello name is Denise and I live here on the west coast of Ireland. I have finally sat down to start my own blog, which I have talked about for such a long time.

I am addicted to other peoples blogs, I am not sure why people do blog but my reasoning for myself is to put some order on my life and keep my head above water when it comes to housework(you can not take photos of a mess).

I love my home and everything in it, my husband, my kids, my animals, my garden.
