As a resident of Hay-on-Wye I especially love the open-mindedness and eccentricity that pervades our community.
I will be putting this to the test with small bursts of Yarn 'Graffiti' (each one a Work Of Heart) attached to other-wise dull structures and willing places of interest around town.
The intention is to inspire a Yarn Craft Revival and put a smile on the faces of the Locals, as well as the Visitors to our lovely town.
It is Hay Literary Festival, and I had planned to do a major bombing spree on the town especially for it but my time has been taken up with a Yarn Bomb commission I am doing for one of my gardener husband's clients. They have a dead tree in their garden and a very creative nature and have asked me to decorate the tree in time for a wedding party there in July. I have done the trunk and one of the smaller branches that forks off it but it has taken all the time I needed to make bombs for Hay, but as I am getting paid for it it is a priority!
So, I already had a couple of bits made up and managed to find time to place this one on a tree standing in the grounds of the Castle overlooking the car park / market square.
To follow my habit of bombing in three's I added two more today on the way home from town...
one on Flow again as the flower finally disappeared a week ago
and one on the trellis at the home of some very dear friends who spread love wherever they go : )
