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.

My Other Sheep

Yesterday I took the time to get a couple of shots of my other sheep in it’s context in the village of Tinahely here in Co Wicklow. As you can see, the street was empty as everybody dove into the shops to avoid the heavy rain. Yesterday was a partial wet one – April showers […]

Crackpot Sheep Launch

Today was the day when Tinahely Arts Group officially launched the 2012 Tinahely Sheep Flock.

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 […]

Doily The Sheep

Yesterday I had the privilege of seeing some of the new sheep that will be on display in the Tinahely Sheep Flock by Tinahely Arts Group. The creativity is pure magic! Meanwhile, I’m having fun preparing my two sheep for the Tinahely Sheep Flock which go on display next Saturday. I have been contemplating for […]

Sheep Spring Back Into Action

It’s sheep time again. It was only just a year ago that I destroyed my poor hands on peat bricket bailer twine and polythene bags to decorate my sheep “All Fake Fur…” for the Tinahely Sheep Flock by the Tinahely Arts Group – the sheep that was then stolen… Yes, there are very many sad […]

My Sheep Is Missing

I met with one of the very vigilant shepherds of the Tinahely Sheep Flock yesterday morning who told me that my sheep (All Fake Fur) had been stolen from it’s base. It was last seen Wednesday evening. I felt sad and I felt glad that I had the experience of the process of making it, […]

Tinahely Sheep Gone Missing

One of the wee lambs from the Tinahely Sheep Flock has gone missing. Have you seen it about the place? If you have, please let us know. It’s much missed!


I should be ‘sheep’-shape for next Friday, but my hands are in bits at this stage. Weaving the turf briquette ties is no joke. I’m still at it all the same although we are launching the Tinahely Sheep Flock this coming Friday evening at 6.30 on the Market Square in Tinahely and we will be […]

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 […]
