Yarn bombing Fun!

I've spent the morning with Maxine, co-owner of Marmalade Yarns, prettifying the shop front in readiness for Frome Festival which starts this weekend. I never thought I'd find myself sewing knitted snails onto drainpipes or teetering on a ladder hanging up strings of pompoms but we had a good laugh and lots of positive feedback from passers by!

Catriona, the other co-owner of the shop, is responsible for the gorgeous bike (although Maxine and I couldn't resist adding a snail or two!).
One generous passerby has promised us £100 for the yarnbombed bin. This money will be donated to

I now need to finish preparations for Open Studios which also start tomorrow - it's all happening in Frome!
