Yarnbombing at The Secret Garden is still a work-in-progress.
One thing we have agreed upon is that it is just way too hot to install anything large at this point. So the big tree is on hold until the Fall.
I went last week to measure some of the smaller trees, but forgot to write down the numbers. For some reason, I thought I would retain that information in my head. What was I thinking? Yesterday I went back again but this time I forgot my measuring tape.
So I took my little yarn strip around and was trying to figure out measurements that way. At a nearby picnic table three Indian guys having their lunch were watching me and even offered to get some rope to tie my yarn strips to the tree. They didn't speak English so I showed them my darning needle already threaded with yarn for sewing ends together. Unfortunately, this strip was 3 squares too short. The rough bark held it on nicely for a photo op, but there was so no sewing yesterday.
I did have a pleasant walk around the garden, and even though all the plants have died away, I always find something interesting and colorful.
My idea is to yarnbomb a few small trees and some of the branches just to see how it will hold up.
For my next trip to the garden, I will definitely be armed with everything I need to measure and record so that the actual yarnbombing can commence.
Have a great day!
