A Yarn Storm

All last week there were predictions of thunderstorms and possible flooding for Saturday.  The US Embassy even sent out a weather warning which I found quite unusual as I don't ever recall them doing that before.
We did get a little rain a day or two, mostly drizzle, but nothing near what we had the week before when it flooded.
Our long awaited yarnbomb event at The Secret Garden was planned for Saturday afternoon and I prayed that the weather predictions would be wrong.  While other events around the country were cancelled due to the forecast, we decided to wait and see how the day played out and I'm so glad we did because it was perfect!
It was a wonderful afternoon of yarnbombing, crochet lessons, henna designs, gardening, a book reading, food and drink and friendship.  Everyone who came was so happy and willing to help. 
I for one was glad that the big tasks were over and I no longer had a deadline looming.

And was so very pleased that the weather cooperated.
 
Happy, happy colorful day!

Dearest Tammy,
One at times cannot follow the weather channel predictions, they love to exaggerate I presume.
You radiate joy and happiness in this photo. Love the total look!
Happy plants from their abundance of rain.
We had three days of terrible rain and today the sun came out!
Hugs,
Mariette

I am SO glad the bad weather held off and you were able to go on with this fun and mostly---important event! I know how much it means to you and how involved you are from IG.

You look absolutely beautiful in the photo! :)

We have terrible weather warnings predicted for tomorrow Sometimes they don't pan out like yours did. But better to be forewarned. I'll be at home but my husband and kids, I worry yet can do nothing.

Thanks for a great post---you did a wonderful job!
