I am very busy with the hook these days… Creative juices are flowing and ides are formulated, tested and tried, deemed worthy of further pursuit or not. I am preparing three different pieces of crochet for exhibitions, one for the Tinahely Agricultural Show Art Exhibition on August 6th and a couple of things for Culture Night, but more about that later.
Not only that, I also have the most wonderful crochet class going every Tuesday morning (10.30-12.30) at the Tinahely Farm Shop, where there are two more weeks left of the current session, do join us! Drop me a mail or give me a ring, if you would like to take part: email@example.com / 085 769 1854. You can learn the very basics of crochet in just two hours! Drop in classes are €15 per class. I also give regular afternoon classes every Thursday afternoon at The Yarn Room – you can book in directly at the shop on: 085 1303762.
A lot of people are on their holidays at the moment, which is lovely – I hear great things about the wonderful Mediterranean water, sun and heat – something we have not been blessed with this summer in Ireland yet, although today there is actually blue skies and shadows on the lawn which is wonderful. I often wonder if I would like to go on a sun holiday and every time I think about it I realize that the one journey I prefer over all journeys is the creative journey. The one where the ideas just flow, where all my being is absorbed by the thing I am constructing in crochet – to me, the best journey of all, and now I will go out into the beautiful sunshine with my hook and let rip.
