XXIV Mostra do Encaixe de Camariñas

Its 5.30am, I should be fast asleep, but instead I'm up doing last minute computer stuff, updating blogs, sending emails, printing info leaflets, boarding passes etc, etc. The next 3 weeks are crazy hectic, and I'll barely get the chance to sit down, let alone blog!

The theme of the parade is Children's Literature, a lovely theme indeed, and golly, wide open to interpretation.

Ar Gor - eggs, geese, women, feet and other stories

Here's a sneaky peek at a piece I'm nearly finished making for an exhibition here in Dingle this April.

From some research into this project, I have been drawn into the murky world of eggs, geese, feet, distaffs and other stories...
