I will keep this post really simple after a frustrating weekend of making several attempts at a post that kept disappearing – or most of it. Something definitely wrong with WordPress this weekend.

So after playing a few tunes in a pub session tonight I have resurrected a draft I started some time ago.

It’s about  the inspiration provided to designers by the wonderful shapes and patterns of the ocean. I particularly remember the famous fashion designer Don O’Neill from Ballyheigue, Co. Kerry (now in New York) describing how he was so influenced by his experience of the images of the lovely beach of Ballyheigue on his doorstep.

Can’t you just see the delicate lacy patterns on the waves washing to he shore. Also, with felt and fur edging.

That’s all, I wonder if this one will save and publish OK.

Thanks for looking. Please come back.
