I've been a busy, busy, busy little bee this week! So much going on, so much to do, rushing here there and everywhere, working incredibly hard preparing for this weekend's Yarndale event.
Yesterday was yarn bombing day, we worked our way through the park spreading some colourful, happy, woolly goodness. It was hard work, but joyful also.
Our town is looking glorious with the first signs of Autumn tip toeing in, yet it has been warm and dry and pretty perfectly Septemberish.
Of course, I haven't yet finished my creative work for Yarndale, I suspect I will be working on it right up until the doors open on Saturday. I still have some of my precious crochet decorations to install in the park, and there is still much to do at the festival venue.
The bunting.....oh the BUNTING!!!! It has ruled my life these past few months, I have worked for so many hours pulling this ginormous creative project together. But not totally alone as you can see. We've had many hands helping to string the 6,000+ triangles over the past few weeks, and today.......
......today we took on the enormous task of hanging it. It looks INCREDIBLE. Words can't describe how it made me feel to see it come together today. I will be taking oooodles of photos of it all and will share much more of the story with you at a later date.
We still have a great deal to do tomorrow to get everything ready, but we are all excited and can't wait to see our festival unfold in all it's creative glory.
I've been down at my studio tonight, tidying it up and getting it ready to open the doors there too at the weekend. If you are visiting for Yarndale and fancy popping in to the studio to have a peek, you will be very welcome. All the details and opening times can be found on Tracy's sweet blog here.
Right.....I need to get back to my crochet decorations, they won't get finished otherwise. I am very much looking forward to meeting many of you at the weekend, do come and say hello to me in the Knit and Natter Lounge.
Lots of love....see you on the other side!
ps, Yarndale visitors, please could you take a moment to go read about Oxfam? I wrote a blog post about needing a little bit of woolly help. Thank you!xxxx
