This is the final instalment.
This was another of my favourites, I was so happy that I actually won the bid for it so we can keep it up at the surgery.
The wooden tree was made by a friend using a photo frame as inspiration. It stands 5ft tall made from MDF and stained with wood stain. I am currently making more leaves so it will look fuller, then the plan is to decorate it with snowflakes for Christmas.
Not sure if you can make this out but it is a real nest that we were given, it had been abandoned so no little birdies were dislodged from their home we promise. Debs made a little crochet bird to sit in the nest which was given a new home in our floal garland adorned tree.
These were balls from a childs ball pool that we covered with yarn to hang like colourful woolly fruits.
A pair of gnomes donated by Dean’s Garden Centre were yarn bombed and graced the front garden with their crochet flowers.
Then we had our safari theme, ok I know a koala does not really fit this theme but he is so cute we had to include him.
The colourful purple snake slithering along the branch. A little boy won the bid for him and when he collected his prize we were trying to help him choose a name. We were all suggesting names that would rhyme with snake like Syd, Sammy and Cyril, good names we thought. But no, “Bob” said the little chap, tied Bob around his waist and off he went. One very happy little man and a snake called BOB!
This colourful parrot was a great hit with all our visitors but sadly he was not available for bids, although his maker did offer for eggs to be laid and nurtured for baby parrots.
Cheeky monkey swinging on a crochet vine, his mate was sitting behind the parrot awaiting his turn on the vine swing.
Below all the activity on high there was an animal picnic going on.
Bunting and birds were hung and strung all around the building giving life to all the themes.
I have to finish by saying a final thank you to all of you who helped us achieve a display that in the end was more than we could have hoped. Both the Hospice and the Hospital are extremely grateful for the funds that we have all raised. And the patients too have continued to show their appreciation.
So here ends our Charity Yarn Bombing story………………….until next year!
