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.

The ladies have been knitting and crocheting up a storm & I will be keeping track of their efforts so watch this space for more photographs soon.


People from all walks of life are coming together in a bid to yarn bomb Port Adelaide. Local businesses are getting involved and local government is showing support for the growing trend.Some of the yarn bombers are keeping their identities close to their chests while others are tagging their work.

The yarn bombing began at the start of winter and is an ongoing project. People from all areas of the community are getting involved and enthusiasm is still running strong.Those who don’t know how to knit or crochet are getting involved by stitching old jumpers scarves and hand made pompoms to buildings, poles and lamp posts.Yarn bombing is a friendly form of street art that has proved popular within the local community and with tourists who love to photograph the work.


After the mega yarn bombing of Port Adelaide on friday night, I returned to the scene of the crime in the light of day to indulge in some photography.

This great street scene is craft gone mad in the local community.

As the Australian winter is coming on a group of kindly community members have been knitting and performing feats of crochet to warm Port Adelaide.

Shopping with a yarn bombed shopping trolley is the only way to shop. I’d like to take this trolley with me to my local spotlight or craft store.

The statue did it !!!!

The most comfortable bench in Adelaide.

The best looking pole in Australia.

Stay tuned for more yarn bombing, craft, art and photography.
