Dropping the Yarn Bomb!

Its not all about glass in my little crafty world, I also love to attend Make Do and Mend with my other crafty friends. Make Do and Mend is a lovely group of talented crafty women in Exeter who meet twice a month to make things, learn new things and laugh, there is lots of laughing!

Joe set the group up 2 years ago and as a second birthday celebration we thought we would yarn bomb Exeter High Street and some prominent sculptural landmarks in the city! Much furious scarf knitting ensued and the result was a scarf on every tree from Boots to Urban Outfitters, a saddle for the Pheonix Art Centre’s unicorn sculpture and some scarfs for various other sculptures around and about! What fun we had, it felt a bit naughty and deliciously good fun.

Luckily there were a lot of half naked students dressed in capes and pants and little else which distracted from our activities marvellously! HAPPY 2ND BIRTHDAY MAKE DO AND MEND, lets hope we brought a smile to the high street shoppers!

    oh well done! I hoped I might recognise somewhere, but then realised I haven’t been to Exeter since the 70s 😉
