Thanks for the link! Made one of these last night, it was my first attempt at making a bag and came out pretty good considering! Thumbs up =)

3  COOKING / Dessert / Re: Dairy-free/vegan cake recipe? on: November 02, 2008 12:58:40 PM
i made that chocolate cake before, it's surprisingly good! 

if you put some marshmallows on it when it's ready and put it back in the (turned off) oven for a few minutes, let them melt and spread them over it it's really good too. defeats the whole vegan aspect of the cake though.

this is an old old thread but just in case anyone else is thinking of wandering to galway here's my two cents.

i've lived in galway for about 4 years, the night life is good once you know where to go and don't accidentally wander to somewhere like CPs when you're the kind of person who would rather the roisin.

CPs is a nightclub and is often refered to as "sleazy Ps". it's akin to a meat market. most of the guys there wear checked shirts and cheap aftershave. the girls wear very little clothes. everyone gets mad drunk, listens to the godawful chart music that's played there and rubs up against each other.
i'm not a CPs type gal, lets be honest.

the roisin to which i referred is the roisin dubh. if you're into your music, the alternative and indie type scenes then this is one of the places for you. really good music most nights, some great bands have played here and i usually have a good night when i'm there. (www.roisindubh.net)

massimos is a great pub, cosy and good atmosphere and good food during the day.

the blue note is also brilliant, very good music and again a great atmosphere.

DeBurgos is also a good one, starting to do more and more gigs there and best place to be on a saturday night imo.

cuba is a great all rounder, one floor with indie alternative and one with chart stuff. fun times.

i could go on and on about pubs etc in galway and the nightlife scene but i think that gives the general gist.

it's a great city. i love it most in september-november, there's always a great vibe and it's my favourite in terms of the weather. summer is good too, the arts festival is always great craic.

the market every saturday is wonderful, crafts and wholefoods and the like. my favourite is the crepe stand, so yummy...

the shopping there is alright, could be better but hey, it's a small city in the west of ireland so it's grand.

what else. if you're moving here average rent can be between 75 and 100, sometimes less depending on where in the city you go, how far out from the centre...

and yeah, it rains lots. but when it's not raining it's one of the most beautiful cities.

if anyone ever wants to ask me anything feel free to message me.

hi there!
i'm from the west - been living in galway the last four years for college and from mayo originally, galway has some great places to find crafts. the market is always a brilliant place to find stuff.

lola rose use to be in the bridge mills, i think it's moved to middle street now. it's wonderful, has great wool and crochet hooks and knitting needles and all that. has some really cool kitsch things for sale too.

bean si is in the bridge mills, ebbybrett mentioned it, it's a lovely shop and has some great handmade clothes and puppets and stuff.

the bead shop is great. hickeys is a good place for materials and wool and stuff. nowhere else is springing to mind...

i tried to post pics of the bag but it wouldn't work! i'm new with this forum...

well these are j-cloths anyways, it was a green and white one and a black shoelace.


for some reason my computer's being pissy about uploading photos though :/

i was super bored at work one evening and so to keep myself occupied i made a purse from a J-cloth, i stapled it because i had nothing to sew it with, turned it inside out and attached a shoelace that i had braided for the handle, given that it was just made from random things i found at work, and it only took about 5 minutes (including the time it took to find everything), it's pretty cool!

i've also made two purses from records, i love this website! it's given me heaps of ideas for things.
