The Tinahely Postcard Art Project exhibition is opening this coming Tuesday at Courthouse Arts Centre, Tinahely and I finally managed to get my card sent off for inclusion.
The theme of the exhibition is “International Women’s Day –
100 years of history” so I thought it was appropriate to take my inspiration from the good women who crochet before me. My mother, who is still at it, my grandmother who was at it until the end and my great grandmother who I know was at it as a very young woman and passed her skill on to my granny.
I based the little dancing doily ladies on crochet from the hands of the three women that went before me with the crochet hook and I added a traditional Irish Rose to symbolize ‘The Irish Connections’. As we all know, there always is an Irish connection…
The doilies are worked in DMC Babylo 20 on hook size 0.75 mm
