Yarnbombing at the Springfield Museum of Art

Jafagirls Nancy Mellon and Corrine Bayraktaroglu have a love of supporting the local arts/artists and getting up to artistic mischief.
We hope you enjoy visiting our blog.
Nancy and I were just delighted when we were invited to yarnbomb the beautiful tree outside the Museum.  We didn't have much time, but thanks to a donation of knitted pieces ♥ and ooddles of felt pieces in the studio and our imagination we got this done in a week. 
The tree is 12ft around, and the largest we have ever done, but it was FUN.
Weather was gorgeous.
It is part of the Museums celebration of Fiber Arts now on exhibit in "Gathering by Sue Cavanaugh" and "Ohio Designer Craftmen: Best of 2013."  And I want to give a shout out to another Yellow Springs artist, Pam Geisel, whose beautiful quilted piece, "Cosmic Connectivity" was juried into the ODC exhibit.

If you have never been to the museum, check it out,the grounds are gorgeous, the permanent collection fabulous, and their current exhibits' stunning.
