Crochet Animation & Music Too

The last week the only thing I have seen of Donal is the back of the screen of his computer as he has been very busy extracting images and composing this little video of my crochet from the last year for me. A video of my crochet inspiration to whet your appetite for a crochet […]

The Rhythm Of Crochet

A while ago, (a year to be exact, I have just been reliably told, cough-cough! How time flies!) I was given a gorgeous and very inspiring gift. I was given a piece of crochet music. Donal wrote a pretty little tune for me all inspired by the rhythm of my crochet hook. Honestly, it doesn’t […]

Good To Go

I’m more or less set for the workshops at the County Library in Skive over the weekend.The course notes are done, the samples are done, the class is full and we’re basically good to go, I just need to go and pick up the yarns tomorrow! Hyperbolic Crochet I at The Beach on Fur Island […]

Apple Blossom In August

I am having great fun with the hook at the moment, as a matter of fact, I’m having too much fun to also have time to write about it even. Some of it I’m not allowed to write about in detail other than to say that it involves film props and a certain French male […]

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 […]

The Week That Was In It

I am having great fun with some hypebolic crochet these days, just simple wearabele items, which I will show off once I find a suitable model. It’s amazing how the Hyperbolic Crochet Coral Reef project has influenced the way I approach crochet, but more about that later. For now, I just thought I would share […]

Hyperbolic Space For Charity

The other day a cheerful mail with a photo attached landed in my in-box. It was from the lovely Reefer, Jenny Byrne. Jenny is one of the rock solid core members of The Reefers group that is promoting and not least loving the Irish Hyperbolic Crochet Coral Reef. It turned out that Jenny had entered […]

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 […]

The Last Waltz

Yesterday we bid the Hyperbolic Crochet Coral Reef farewell as we packed the Irish People’s Reef away in boxes for it to be resurrected around the country, we hope.

Joie De Vivre

Wednesday June 2nd 2010 will be with me for a very long time. I spent time with the most amazing people and I was submerged in art and craft and good energy and knowledge and innovation. Plain and simple, joie de vivre at gourmet level! I went to see the Finals Exhibition at the IADT […]
