Putting up the Yarn Bomb
Well, after 5 years since the last time the CGOA (that’s the “Crochet Guild of America”) was in NH, they have returned and we were so excited to set up the yarny decorations that would greet everyone as they arrived at the hotel for the upcoming Chain Link conference.
Many Hands Make Light Work
I had a great crew of helpers to install all the pieces – we put some around trees, benches, flower pots and flag poles outside. One even made it on to a garbage can.
More Yarn Bombing Indoors
The hotel has been newly renovated providing many perfect spots for crocheted projects so we added squares to the chairs in the cafe/restaurant. **A special thank you to Carol M. and Kim R. on the hotel staff who approved our project and supported our efforts!**
Then we headed upstairs and added some crochet finesse to the stair railings, couches and bathrooms . . .
Mandalas All Around
If you have visited this blog before, you know that I love to crochet mandalas. Well, I had a great time creating all of the mandalas we incorporated into the Yarn Bomb decorations. I think there were about 20 in all -here are some of my favorites:
A big thank you goes out to all of my helpers – those who helped carry, hang and crochet pieces – it was a terrific team effort and everyone LOVED the decorations – yay!
