Yarn Bombing Warning and Video

I couldnt' stop laughing when I saw this cartoon on Virgil Hervey's Yellow Springs Blog. I can now add jafa street hottie to my list of titles :)

Some of the textile totems have changed since the video was made, but it still gives a good sense of Dayton Street in Yellow Springs(except two pics that are from Graffiti Alley in Ann Arbor).

Nancy and I did a 2 min interview, while working on the new peace pole, for abc/22 Dayton News "It's Where You Live" series on Yellow Springs.

jafa Street Hotties could be the source of global warming. Perhaps Dayton Street needs a lightweight seersucker during the summer months.

just wanted to let you know that the yarn bombing is spreading!
we recently had ArtWalk in Milwaukee and there was an element of yarn (and 'bombing') to the Riverwest Artists Association's outdoor Sound Garden.
It featured painted trees, with knitted leaves, and then we made windchimes (out of silverware. so much tinkly fun!)

and then i bombed the heck out of the place with yarn. a very good time was had by all....but i think especially me.

deb, that just pleases me no end, thanks for sharing that. Life is just too short to let the fear of what others think stop us for enjoying things.
