2nd Prize – People’s Choice

Yesterday was the day that the winners of the National Tea Cosy Competition were declared and I hear there was great excitement at the event. I wasn’t able to be there myself, but my friend Sue was there and gave rave reviews of the entries! The overall winner of the competition was superb and it […]

Another Cuppa Tea

Yesterday saw me high-tailing it into town to make the afternoon post, I had my two tea cosies all wrapped in pink tissue paper and carefully placed in a brown cardboard box. They were duly sent off to Karen who is running the National Tea Cosy Competition here in Ireland this weekend. I look forward […]

Crochet Joy & Miles Of Knitting Too

The workshop today was an action packed affair oozing enthusiasm and ability and some serious creative attitude! A Seriously Creative Bunch at Skive County Library © Irene Lundgaard 2011 The pedestrian area of the town was even festooned with bright pink ribbons to support breast cancer awareness.

A Colourful Week

This week is turning out to be a riot of colour and I thought I would share a bit of the colours that I have been surrounded by. Who knows, this teaser might just entice you to go and have a look at the pretty exhibition of The Irish Reef, which is created by some […]

Hyperboles & A Graffitied Fire Engine

I have finally landed after a hectic week of fun and games in Denmark. It was a family time, but never far away from fibre related matters at any given time. There was Circus by the children, there was an 8th birthday, a christening, walks by the beach and then there was a hyperbolic crochet […]

Another Dive On The Irish Reef

Friday morning we had some spook at The Courthouse Arts Centre as 27 scary pupils from Tinahely National School came for a dive on The Reef. They were so colourful and receptive. And they kindly gave me a beautiful flower and a lovely Halloween card to go with it. I adored the way they were […]

Twisting And Twirling

I have finally managed to load the Twisty Twirly Scarf pattern so that it’s now available on Ravelry. It took a while and a bit of ploughing through the help files… Reading the small print is obviously not my strongest point! The pattern doesn’t have a lot of small print, it’s fairly straight forward and […]

Congregating In Tinahely

Last night was Culture Night and my local village was teeming with activity. First of all, we launched the Tinahely Arts Group with a beautiful group exhibition, then there was crowd theatre, a play by a local playwright at the arts centre and not least an outdoor movie. I entered my Congregation Vessel in the […]
