Yarn Bombing Fun

 Well today I can finally show you the project that has taken up so much of my summer and has resulted in the severe drought in my blog writing!

A yarn bomb project for our local primary school, St John’s Primary school in Tisbury.  This tree has 100 stars attached, one for each child in the school, and was decorated to celebrate the start of a new school year.

Several of us got involved (you know who you are!) and not only did we decorate this tree, we also decorated other areas of the playground.

The nature garden.

The quiet area with the birds and balloons can only be seen by entering the ivy covered shelter.

The benches

The entrance to reception class (we can’t claim credit for the castle walls, they were there before we started decorating)

And a couple of close-ups of the reception entrance, and finally:

I think the school sign may need a little cleaning after the long summer break!

It was really lovely to see the reactions when everybody arrived at the school this morning, with us mingling among the other parents and denying all knowledge of who’d done it.

So here’s to the Tisbury Knitwits, well done ladies. My only question – what shall we make next?
