This weeks blog post is a follow up on a community yarn bombing project that I have been following on Bruny Island Tasmania. These colourful knitted and crocheted, yarn bombs where produced by a group of highly talented crafters, who are part of an elderly citizens respite group called BIRCH. This talented group have been yarn bombing the Jane Finn community room at the Alonnah Health Centre on Bruny Island, an Island in the Southern Ocean, off the coast of Southern Tasmania in Australia.bruny island health centre yarn bombing

The ladies from Bruny Island Respite House BIRCH have been doing some great yarn bombing in the Jane Finn room at the Bruny Island Health Centre in Alonnah on Bruny Island, Tasmania. I slipped in on my day off and snapped some photographs. The ladies at the reception where very accommodating when I asked to take a peek.

What a great community project done by some great elderly citizens. What wonderful projects people can undertake when they get together over a cup of tea and a biscuit.

I started knitting on the plane on the way to Tasmania and kept on knitting during my holiday, as I find knitting and craft activities very relaxing.yarn bombing tasmania 1This yarn bomb was done on private property with permission. One of the great things about these trees is that they can be seen from the road, so anybody driving down this dirt track can enjoy this semi bush yarn bombing.yarn bombing bruny island 3This yarn bombing is street art on a country road. Not a lot of dirt tracks have this kind of colourful yarn bomb tree street art.
