Journal and ideas for park yarn bombing....

30th June 2014

Just do not know where June went!!!

I put all my info from Woolfest in my journal/sketchbook today.....
I have stuck in the cards from the stands with info on one side but any cards with info on both has been attached to the spiral using thread....


......all this info has been placed in 2  cello bags on the page. This idea was from the Anne Brooke Course I attended.


Next I made a quick tour of my local charity shops and bought these crocheted mats.....


.....I can  stitch them together to decorate railings or big tree trunks! I think the people who made these would like to think they are being recycled in a fun way!! 

I also made some small bunting pieces from embellished felt....


...will be useful to wrap around or drape....

....knitted and cut out flowers from felt....


...these will be stitched on netting to decorate railings and mesh...


...this is a photo from Yarndale.

This afternoon took photos of areas I want to add colour to and hopefully make both adults and children smile....


....a lot of fencing around the bowling green...


....a memorial bench for one of our committee members.....



...solar lighting post...



...this is so well used by all ages.....


....new swings, can you imagine pompoms or bunting on this?


Junior swings always in use, poles to be wrapped in stripy knitting!


Our new roundabout that we managed to acquire funds for and is so well used....


....netting around the tennis area...


...these trees are at one entrance to the park and would look good 'dressed' in stripes...



...or decorated with bunting!
