yarn bomb excitement!

I'm thrilled to announce that I was able to take part in my first "real", in-person yarn bomb! I've done smaller yarn bombs by myself and also participated in various yarn bombs by mailing my crocheted pieces to other artists. However, this was my first time doing an in-person yarn bomb that involved wrapping my work around a tree. 

This yarn bomb was held on February 3, 2019 and was hosted by the Montclair Art Museum in Montclair, New Jersey (USA). I decided to go with a winter theme, so I crocheted an aqua background and some white snowflakes, which I sewed onto the background. 

On the day of the yarn bomb, I partnered with two other artists, Brooke and Carole, to cover a tree. We were lucky because we were given permission to cover the tree that's right in front of the museum entrance. What an honor! 

It was interesting because even though Brooke, Carole and I had never met before, we worked together well and our tree came out looking fabulous.  I had a lot of fun! I was also interviewed on video camera. The idea of being on video made me nervous at first, but now I'm so glad I did it. Thank you to Gabrielle Frasco of the Montclair Art Museum for hosting the yarn bomb. 


PS- If you'd like to support me and my work, please consider buying something from my Etsy shop, Green Owl Crochet. I also accept commissions. Thank you!
