We had a visitor for the weekend as part of Limerick's city of Culture 2014 celebrations. This whole weekend a Giant Granny from France (Street theatre company Royal de Luxe) walked the streets of Limerick crossing the river Shannon a few times, telling stories and smoking a pipe.
The weather was glorious (even got a little sunburnt!) so there was no sewing at all done but lots of fun all the same!
Granny gave us some dry ice and a big party. She was meant to leave via the River but low tide and the barge not being able to get up to Sarsfield Bridge with the team of people it takes to assist a 25ft Giant Grandmother onto a rocky boat meant she had to stay a little longer.
It was great fun and a fantastic spectacle. Normal quilty updates will resume tomorrow!
