The Power Of Crochet Flowers

I teach crochet classes in the Market Square building right in the centre of Tinahely, Co Wicklow. At the bottom of the steps the Tinahely ICA erected a granite bench for people to congregate at for at chat. Behind the bench there is a tree – a tree that I appear to have “something” for

Today the crocheters of Tinahely sprinkled crochet flowers onto the branches of the tree while it is still bare, just because we can! Colourful flowers, imaginative flowers, mad flowers, fun flowers, pretty ones, romantic ones – in other words a great concoction of crochet flower biodiversity in one place, flowers to brighten up the last few weeks of winter.

Perhaps the flowers will be stolen, perhaps they will be laughed at, frowned upon, embraced, torn apart, picked and be never seen again and perhaps they will cheer up the people passing and make them smile…

    jeg tror folk vil blive glade,
    når de ser de “udsprungne” blomstrende træer.
    Det varsler forår og sommer.
    Bare ikke bilerne tørner sammen,
    når de kommer rundt der, fra alle sider.
    Jeg glæder mig, til at komme og sidde på bænken i jeres hyggelige lille by.
    Igen at se, op på markerne og bjergene.

    Nic, I hope so and fingers are crossed that that is the case!

    Mama, du kommer bare og hvis du synes du også vil have en blomst på, så sender du lige een, så skal jeg nok på magisk vis få den op på træet!

    I LOVED being involved in this project, Irene is so inspiring, after only 3 crochet classes I’m completely addicted

  5. Irene says:

    Fiona, it’s a joy that you are so “into” it! Very inspiring! As for your flowers, they look smashing on the tree!
    See you on Wednesday! 😉

    What a lovely town square you have, your added touch makes it even prettier. You had to have had a ball doing that! Congrats on the magazine feature, too!

  7. Irene says:

    Welcome to my website and thank you for your comment.
    Yes, the town square is pretty and on an odd slant as it is up a hillside surrounded by mountains.

    The magazine feature is great and thanks for the congratulations on that too!

  8. Who could frown upon flowers in a tree? 🙂

    Tina, to my knowledge, nobody so far! 😉
