Successful Northern Ireland trip!

I had a great time in Northern Ireland. Stunning views of different habitats everywhere, and so many lovely moth-ers and other nature people! Thanks to Northern Ireland Butterfly Conservation for the invitation to their recorders' meeting. 

Before my trip, I had a commission...
Bug o'clock! (with some Northern Ireland Specialities)

It was a lot harder to make, because I don't know much about other insects, and I spent ages doing research. Making their legs etc. was also time consuming, but I'm very happy with the result. 

I also made some dragonfly necklaces, which were sold out at this event. I shall make more! 

New butterfly species...Red Admiral, Purple Emperor, Small Tortoiseshell, and Pearl Bordered Fritillary. 

I'm currently working on a big order for the online shop of Butterfly Conservation! Yes, I'm going NATIONAL!! :-D
