Yarn Bombing!!!!

4th January 2015

Greetings from a frosty sunny Blackpool.

We started decorating the park yesterday but had to stop due to heavy rain! This is what we managed yesterday.....


.....this was vandalised during the night, the burger disappeared and the cloth was thrown on the grass and trampled on so we have moved it inside the railings in the bowling area...



....I think this is my favourite even though it took many hours to produce, it is fixed to the bowler's shelter....


.....an online friend from my Be Creative group sent me these lovely chicks.....


.....this bench is a memorial to an original member of the Friends group, he would have loved this!


:::::

Today was frosty and sunny, just perfect for our task....














.....the new display complete with cups and teapot...





....love these made by Karen, just pompoms on garden sticks but so effective in the planter in the bowling area....




....spot the dream catcher....








...pompom bunting.


At 2pm the Graffiti Artists set up....

...they wound black plastic around the tennis court netting...


....and everyone had fun...




....completed, AMAZING!!


This whole project has been amazing, so many people helping, lots of laughs and making  new friends but the greatest part was the smiles it brought to people walking through the area, mission accomplished!!

Another funny highlight for me was when the photographer from the local paper asked me to pose beside the flower hut and lying on a bench, the first time I have been a model, WHAT A HOOT!!!


We ended the day taking Jack for a beach walk....


...am already thinking about next year!!!!
