IF WISHES WERE ...., Well then I'd have finished my posts on the Wishing Tree - but for now that will have to wait for another day because......
FROM THREAD TO THRIVE.
A REALLY, REALLY EXCITING NEW PROJECT
Yup, I've wanted to yarnbomb, kniffiti in a public space and I (well actually you as well because you will be part of it) am about to. I've always preached about getting permission (OH&S issues) Well now its better than PERMISSION, its a COMMISSION. And, everyone can be part of it - knitters. crocheters and stitchers, and helper/installers.
The designs are done, this is Thrive Community Garden. Its in a beautiful position, right next to parkland running long the Diamond Creek.
and this is the barbecue pavilion in Rotary Park in Diamond Road. Its right next to the netball courts and a lovely new playground.
and these are designs
And, in between there's a bike path so..........I wonder
how many ...........
DIAMOND CREEK (such a lovely name) - together YOU and I are going to make this parkland a diamond in the crown of kniffiti (yarnbombing).

DEADLINE - we install in the first week of December! So, one and all please, please, please get ready to start knitting and crocheting and then we can start stitching
You dont have to wait for our yarn or live in Diamond Creek to be part of this - instructions will start being posted on line tomorrow , so find your hooks and needles, some 100% acrylic 8ply yarn and be ready! Check this space email us for a delivery point or postal address.
