Art Of The Woods

Last year the Tinahely Arts Group had a great day of making art of our local woods and this year we are repeating the success. Monday March 18th at 11am group members of TAG will gather in the woods with only a penknife as an aid. All art must be made by debris from the […]

Have A Crochet New Year

I have had the most fantastic year in crochet with very exciting happenings, fun workshops and not least many creative crocheters hatched.

Free Form Crochet Fun

One of the great joys of my life is when I get a chance to prepare something new for my crochet classes. Sometimes it’s just a description of a technique that needs to be smartened up a bit or it can just be new inspiration both for my pupils and for myself. At the moment […]

Sheep Unleashed

The last few days were hectic as the deadline for the Tinahely Sheep Flock was looming. I had to complete my contributions and as I was not working in crochet but with paint on metal I found it a bit stressful, to be honest – but mostly a fun challenge… Doily The Sheep and Origin […]

We had a blast of a cultural weekend here in Tinahely. There was much celebration of Culture Night, with all sorts of activities. The Courthouse Arts Centre dished out some good concerts too and the Tinahely Arts Group were delighted to have our Arts & Craft Shop in the barn of The Farm Shop yesterday […]

A Lively Handbag

I have not exactly been going to bed early the last week or so and that is for a very good reason, if I may say so myself. I allowed myself to indulge in a spot of my all time favourite crochet discipline, namely tapestry crochet. I have harboured the idea for a colourful handbag […]

Wild Colours For The Fair

I don’t know what has come over me, but I seem to have gone completely 80’s in my colour choices this spring. My stall at the Arts & Craft Fair in Tinahely this coming Sunday May 1st is going to madly coloured and flowered too, although that could be argued to be more of a […]

Perhaps Ewe’ll See A Lambshade

It’s time for me to get down to the real sheep business. The shapes are cut, the holes are drilled and my plan of action is in place. ‘Tis just the action bit that’s missing somewhat. The first point of call has been collection of the horrid ties from the turf briquette bales; I will […]
