Textile Graffiti and Terrified Sandwiches

WIP: I wanted to do something a wee bit different for the textile graffiti and I had visions of integrating knitting, felt, canvas and any other scraps I come across. Even though I don't have a specific pattern I'm trying to use colours that are around the area of the pole on Dayton Street in Yellow Springs. This is wide enough to go around a telephone pole (30inches) and will eventually be about 4 or 5 ft in length.

A British Twist
I really MISS seeing this, and to see THIS done to it, well I LOVE it.
You can always count on Yarnbombing to showcase some of the most interesting knit/textile graffiti and links from around the world.

Frame of Mind
and as an artist I don't have a good one when it comes to framing. It's something I have avoided like the plague (unless I can custom build my own to suit the particular piece). In fact the whole notion of putting my embroidery into any kind of frame is not appealing to me at all.
This is going to be a bit of a challenge next year when I have my exhibit.

The only reason those yarnbombing vandals aren't in jail is the fear of what they would do to the bars...the cots...and heaven forbid...the loo. ;-⎠ I wonder what the embroidery pieces would look like using an embroidery hoop as inspiration for a frame?

LOL Bill! That would be funny.
Hoop does not appeal to me either, arg! I have this vision of the embroidery being incorporated into assemblage but I haven't figured out how.

I'd be terrified too, if I was full of baloney! (vegetarian, you see *wry grin*)
