A Little Interning

For the past week or so I've been very happily doing work experience with abigail*ryan - a homewares business run by couple Abigail and Ryan (funny enough!), near Carrickfergus. My placement with Belvoir Players finished up just before Christmas, so the timing couldn't have been better when a friend pointed me in the direction of their company blog advertising their internship opportunity. They design their own textile patterns (from Abi's beautiful hand drawings) based mainly on flowers and plants, from which they make ranges of cushions, tea towels, scented sachets...

I've been asked to help with an exciting new project which is all very hush hush at the moment, but pretty damn cool. So for a few days a week I visit their home and cut, stuff and sew linen whilst drinking copious amounts of tea and fending off the advances of their amorous and cute lhasa apso, Angus. I also get a few lovely manicures thrown in - I'm starting to develop a liking for gel nails and glitter!
