Seems like there’s a bit of a “work in progress-Wednesday” thing going on with the crafty blogs, so here’s what I’ve been fitting in every now and then.
You knew I was gonna come up with something like this one of these days, right!? It’s almost finished, and Alex made me drag it outside into the sunshine for a proper pic. Jessie (aka Flotsam) refused to sit on it but that’s because I used the sheep to model the blue hat yesterday, and not her, so she’s sulking.
I picked the stool up at some junk shop or other, with the idea of painting the legs and mosaicing the top. As far as I can remember, anyway. But I’m very pleased with my first yarnbomb effort and I’m starting to look at other things around here that might benefit from similar treatment. The couch? Bedside table? Jessie?
And I haven’t forgotten that midnight tonight is the cut-off time for picking someone’s name for the owl cushion give-away. It’s been such a fun and gratifying thing to do, I wish I could give everyone an owl!
You made two owls! How cute.Two wit – two woo, as one might say!
These owls are like amoeba. (or what’s the thing that reproduces by self-division?) More to come… :-)
WOWWEEEEEE! I love it…you really are a MACHINE!
:-) Thanks, doll.
Jill you are a crochet maven; been laughing ever since the amazing stool appeared before my eyes. Looks like Pippa Longstocking changed into a stool.
Glad to make you laugh, Gail :-) x
I LOVE it! Great job!
Thanks very much :-)
I guess no-one should sit still for too long at your place now, in case they are covered in crochet!
that thought has occurred to me before, and it’s a DAMN GOOD one
That is amazing! I love love love it!!! :)
You beat me to the stool-bombing!! I’ve had one waiting for some yarnlove…now I must get it started :) You are inspiring as always!
Get going then! I bet yours will be stunning-ness stoolified! (Mine was a bit of a hash job, but I guess that’s part of the idea). xxx
The stool looks fab! I showed my son and he said ” cool!”
Really? A boy said “cool”? Awesome!!!
You must know that I just love what you did to your stool. What a perfect thing to yarn bomb. I love everything about it. The End!
This is awesome! I want to yarn bomb a chair just like this!
Well, I’d love to see the pics when you’ve done one :-) There’s loads of stuff on the internet to inspire you, and one of the nice things about ybing is that whatever you do is completely original! (as opposed to following instructions or someone else’s pattern). I have a few crochet flowers lying around and was thinking of sewing some on here and there…:-) You can also use up sample swatches and abandoned squares and half-finished scarves.
Thanks for the tips :) I also prefer to adapt others’ ideas and make something new :)
Yarn bomb everything :-) nice owls Jill
Love the owls but am blown away by the yarn bombed stool. I can see a wee trip to a charity shop for a suitable stool coming up soon!
