This weekend saw Pia & Thue’s 40th birthday and I celebrated with a spot of crochet – the ultimate from of celebration if you ask me. Pia & Thue are avid bikers, this summer saw them “do Sweden” on their bikes and next year they are planning a very long bike trip in America… What [...]
I’m on a roll with these summer neck pieces. I like the simplicity of the grey linen and silver coloured beads – once we get the sun and a bit of a tan I think it’ll look great on some summer skin!

I don’t know where this romantic streak of mine has come from of late! First there was pink crochet flowers, then crochet with pearl beads and now doilies for the hair! It must be that spring has sprung!
I have had my DMC 40 pure cotton Ecru coloured thread out along with my .6 mm crochet [...]
I love the fashion of statement jewellery, I have seen very many beautiful pieces but I rarely wear any myself as my neck does not like the weight, not even a fine little gold necklace with a small pendant does my neck like. However, I am a great woman for wearing scarves, my neck really [...]
I thought I’d share a little bunch of crochet pink flowers I made for a friend who has been unwell. They are crochet in cottons from my stash. I had many colours of yarn but somehow the pinks spoke to me while diving for yarn. I will allow the pictures to speak for themselves while [...]
While I was in Denmark earlier in the month a message with a fun order ticked into my mail box. I usually say I don’t “do” commissions, but then again, I do “do” commissions, but only when my creative freedom is not constrained. Fortunately, this was the case again this time. This was an order [...]
I am busy teaching crochet these days and was delighted to have a great day in the Deirdre Minogue Shop in Tinahely, Co Wicklow on Saturday where my crochet sold well – I have a shop in Deirdre’s shop and love the concept of cooperation in that way!
My good sales on Saturday means some of [...]
I have arrived in Denmark and I’m busy finalizing the last few items for the workshops on Friday and Saturday. I thought I’d share a quick photo of one of the items that we will be working on on Saturday. It’s an armband in some lovely cotton and when my mother saw the flowers she [...]
Today I brought my very colourful current crochet project to Deirdre Minogue’s Shop in Tinahely. The project is a wrap in pinks and purples and orange and red and it’s quite in your face in the colourful fun sense of in your face! I tried to capture the colours with my camera, but did not [...]
The other day I was diving in my considerable yarn stash and came across a couple of balls of Bouclé Mohair from Cushendale Wollen Mills. The colours were Glacier and Greengage and they just spoke to my inner colour lover there and then. I put everything else to one side and started crocheting immediately. Dana [...]
