Anna ginning her home grown cotton. Her Italian husband was excited when she came home with a pasta maker, thought he was going to be getting home made pasta – wrong!!
Great to see Shirley here for the winter!

On ya bike

Today we had lots of fun yarn bombing a bike. Thanks to all the members who helped out, the bike looks groovy, funky, baby. The bike will be on display at the D’Arcy Doyle Art Awards in the Mudgeeraba  Memorial Hall from June 27. Our group also yarn bombs the trees in the near by Village Green.  Jacquie and Anna have created some colourful crochet bollard toppers. See you among the riot of colour in Mudgeeraba at the end of June.

 

Tree Bombing

We have been knitting and crocheting all year, now all the Mudgeeraba community can enjoy the colourful trees at the Mudgeeraba Village Green

Tree bombed for the D’Arcy Doyle Art Awards, have a look at the great paintings in the hall.

As we were decorating the trees many people stopped and chatted to us and admired our tree bombing, they thought it was a fantastic project. Everyone was smiling and taking photos as they walked thru the park.

Go down there and have a look and visit the D’Arcy Doyle Art Show.

Freeform crochet with Prudence Mapstone

On the weekend our members enjoyed an inspiring workshop with Prudence Mapstone.

Prudence has kindly loaned a collaborated yarn bombing work to our project. Thanks Prudence.

We learned many new stitches, layout design and how to fit and sew scrumbles together. Even though it was hot we kept crocheting and had lots of fun.

The trees in Mudgeeraba are going to look wonderful.
