Yarn-bombing a little love around London.

I went to London for a long weekend and took some crocheted love-bombs with me....

The first is on the Statue of 'The Conversion of St Paul' in Soho Square
TAG #63

The second is on the back of a display in one of my favourite London yarn shops -
 for the pleasure of the staff in All The Fun Of The Fair
TAG #64

The third is on a shop display at Sohigh Soho - one of my favourite places I used to work at in my youth
TAG #65

The fourth love-bomb was at Occupy London at St Paul's Cathedral in support of the great work being done by the cold, uncomfortable, dedicated people creating awareness of the corruption of the present financial system, and to facilitate discussions that are empowering everyday people to stand up and be heard.

... and even yarn-bombed Bansky's piece ;-)

And lastly I have finally exhibited at The National Gallery : )

This first picture is my love-bomb's-eye view of Nelson's Column, Trafalgar Square,

Happy International Yarn Bombing Day Hay-on-Wye.

Despite my painful fibromyalgia-ridden legs, I had to celebrate International Yarn Bombing day, so I dragged myself around Hay to spread a little Yarn Love. I had two fellow Stitchers with me but they had forgotten what day it was (as I nearly did) and had no tags themselves, but came round with me for a while to add to the excitement : )

On my way round I saw Jenny Valentine who owns Hay Deli (as well as writing books) and she told me that the string of flowers on the shop door had been stolen during Hay Literary Festival and she needed a replacement, luckily I had a perfect piece for the job...
