MORE COLOURFUL COMMUNITY YARN BOMB PHOTOGRAPHY

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

YARN BOMBING AT THE BRUNY ISLAND HEALTH CENTRE

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.

JUNK, YARN, CROCHET, CRAFT, KNITTING & PHOTOGRAPHY

yarn bomb scooterI got a bit crazy with the knitting needles & the junk pile & the front door, last year. Not only did I yarn bomb everything in sight but I also made a kind of garland out of old novelty spoons, seen tied to the yarn bombed posts. I love junk, yarn, crochet, craft & knitting.

EMBROIDERY ON MY PHOTOGRAPHY

I was attempting to print some old photographs and they just kept turning out wrong, the ink was uneven and there were lines through the photographs. Eventually I gave up on my printer, but I was’t ready the throw out my prints so I decided I should embroider the paper over the photos. The pictures in this post are the result of my experimentation with sewing on paper photographs. These photos originally hail from the 1940s, 1930’s and 1920’s.embroidery photos001 embroidery photos002 embroidery photos003 embroidery photos004
