Charity Yarn Bombing 2015

It’s coming round again, I can’t believe it is June already. Where does time go?

This years Charity Yarn Bombing at the surgery will be on 29 and 30 August 2015Charity Yarn Bombing Banner

Last year patients, friends and family and crafters from around the globe helped us create a woolly fantasy garden in the grounds of the small GP surgery where I work raising over £1000.00, the proceeds were shared between our local hospice and the hospital.

We have commenced our regular Saturday meetings to plan and share our ideas and creations for this years woolly display. We wanted to challenge ourselves so the themes are different as listed below, although we thought it was appropriate to keep a seaside theme again as we are on the coast.

  • Dinosaur park
  • Teddy Bears Picnic
  • Down on the Farm
  • Jungle Capers
  • Beside the Seaside

Read last years post here and see the three posts showing what was acheived for last years event in Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3

If you would like to join in everyone is welcome, any contributions will be most gratefully received and put to great use. Just leave a comment or drop me an email if you would like any further information. Alternatively please stay in touch and we will share our progress with you in the coming weeks.

You may have already guessed that Stan the Stegosaurus and the crochet cave kids Magnar and Sadiki are for the Dinosaur Park and I look forward to sharing further makes with you all.

 

Love Birds for the Yarn Bombing

How cute are these little love birds? They have been sent to alight on a tree in our charity Fantasy Garden yarn bombing at the surgery from the lovely Twisted Yarn

 

Love BirdsWe had a bit of a moment when we thought they had been lost in the post but thankfully they had just been delayed for some reason.

Blue Love BirdThank you so much for this gorgeous contribution. One of my friends has made a crochet tree and these will look right at home nestling in the branches.

Orange Love BirdThey are such a pretty pair I think they will definitely be staying together.
