Yarn, Yorkshire and All Manner of Wonderful Things!

Yarnbomb delivery!

Yesterday I set off with my little box of wooly goodness to deliver it to  The Grange Range.

In case you have missed the posts about this yarn bombing it is to take place in a couple of weeks time at a Doctors surgery in Scarborough. All donated items are to be auctioned off at the end of the weekend and given to two good causes , both of which are very dear to my heart, being the hospital and hospice where my Dad was this year.

I knew I was at the right place when I drove past this tree.

already yarn bombed for the big weekend.

I couldn’t have been made more welcome. Nor so delighted to see just a fraction of the items that have been sent in from all round the world from fellow bloggers, so many that the Grange Range sends her apologies for not yet being able to thank people on her blog, so I said I would send an interim thank you, till she has some blogging time.

I saw a Snail of happiness from here and so many Bower Birds like these from Love Lucie, pattern by Attic 24.

Have a little look at what I saw

Ducks, owls and a frog. Did you ever see such adorable baby owls in a nest with their Mama Owl behind.

How about these

We had time for lunch in a nearby tea room , smoked salmon, scrambled eggs on a buttered muffin with Earl Grey tea and cake to follow. That carrot cake was Dee Licious. A lovely lovely lunch with a lovely lovely lady. The first time I met a fellow blogger and it couldn’t have been any nicer.

Best of luck to the Grange Range Yarn Bombing weekend.

  1. Lovely things and I am so glad you both had a good afternoon (and it was a lovely day)x

  2. It sounds as though it will be a fabulous sight.

  3. Isn’t it wonderful to meet a fellow blogger and find out they are just as nice in real life! Unfortunately my birds are making their way by post but I do hope to get up there to see it finished.

  4. What a lot of lovely things!

  5. I could not agree more with Cathy’s comments it was such a pleasure to meet a fellow blogger and lunch was lovely at Mad Hatties Tea room just around the corner, my cake was coffee and walnut and just as delicious. I think we really indulged ourselves considering that lunch usually consists of something on the run. Thank you Cathy for the lovely contributions to our yarn bombing project and for conveying my thanks and apologies to all the fabulous folk that I have yet to thank. Hopefully we can do it again sometime.
