Yarn Bombing - A New Member.


Grey skies are not always a bad thing.

It just means a change in activities.

From lazy sunny beachy days, sand castle-ing, long evening walks, reading books under the shade of a big tree, cooling off in the various shades of shimmering aqua through to deepest of blue waters.

To pulling out the lego, painting, playdoh, reading books flat out on our bellies on beds of cushions and pillows, puzzles and boardgames, and toasted sandwiches.

(Wet days at home are also good for catching up on orders, paperwork, housework, and well yeah, let's just not go there, let's just be happy that certain jobs are done for now.)

Wet days are also good for yarn bombing.  Yup!  Yarn bombing light poles.  I had just finished another customer order and wanting to make something other than my coasties, whipped up this flower with leaves, thinking I would do some sample headband/halo pieces for my next market.  It ended up on a light pole instead!  I like it, I like it alot.  (Headbands and halo pieces still coming.)  I should have been making these and bombing along the way when we did our big trip last April/May.  Oh golly, now THAT would have been fun.  Well there is no time like the present, so the experts tell us!  *giggle*

If you have any information about yarn bombing, or if you are an active 'bomber' in your area, I would LOVE to know.

Thanks so much for stopping by my place today.  
Have a wonderful week at your place.

Today's post has been brought to you by the letter 'Y' - 'Y' is for Yarn.

oh Penelope, please, please, please share your bombing. I would so love to see, but yes, shhhhh, I won't say a word.
Ana, thank you. It's just the beginning. I think the grey rainy skies really make the pinkness and limeness stand out a treat. I hope you are snug and warm at your place.
