Saturday Statuary - Fruit of the Loom

When the freezing rain and howling northerly gale get together and try to tear your face off, who you gonna call?
The Yarnbombers! Yay!
A hearty thank you to Norwich's doughty yarn bombers for bringing a touch of colour to a drab weekend and cheering my life up just when I need it.

Yarnberries! I love the little red fruit on the trees. They're guaranteed to cheer up that gray corner ... and a curmudgeon's heart. Hope you and yours are OK.

Alifan said...

Oh they are lovely.

Moist and cold, thank you, Speedway, but grateful to the yarn-bombers.

Better than Christmas baubles, mum.

Speedway said...

All you can think about is dusting - and however much I enjoy these yarn baubles, all I can think of is how tatty, sodden and dreary they are going to look not long from their installation.

Ah, but when they unravel they can be re-knitted or recycled. Being fruit, when they rot they create something new.

I am charmed.

dive said...

They are kinda cute, are they not?

Love these! Perfect for a nasty winter day.

They look better than they taste, Ms.M.

I wouldn't hang my pompoms out in that sort of weather!!!

dive said...

They're still there this morning, Jules, looking as fresh and perky as ever, even though it's a blizzard out there.

Julie Mclean said...

Yes I always find my bits are "perky" in the cold....or maybe just frozen solid!!

Hee hee hee!
