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.

Mudgeeraba Street Party

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.

Felting fun

Our members had lots of fun felting a group project. Many thanks to Joan, Judith and Karen for dyeing the fibre wonderful colours. Our members joined in to lay out the fibres and embellish the colourful creation, followed by lots of splodging, laughter, pressing and chanting, giggles, rolling and throwing and getting wet.

Of course the felted fabric looks great and will be made into bookmarks next week.

Yarn Bombing Mudgeeraba

Today the Village Green at Mudgeeraba is a brighter and more cheerful park. We Yarn Bombed it. The trees the woodchopper statue, the stage and a few poles in front of the Memorial hall. So come down to Mudgeeraba and have a look. It is all for the d’Arcy Doyle Art Awards in the Mudgeeraba Memorial Hall, open now until the 10 July.

What fun we had, everyone was curious to what was happening and all the passing motorists gave friendly toots.
