A day out and about.....

A friend and I went off down the road to Warwick for the Jumpers and Jazz festival... it's becoming an annual event to visit...

Firstly sustenance so we could handle the day....


it seemed everything that was static was yarn bombed... I loved this fence...


.. the entrance to a fantastic beanie event (no pictures allowed but they were just so clever) but they were from this amazing exhibition Colours of the Country  and you can see some pictures of the exhibits on their web page...


this tree had its woolies on for the fresh weather....


a curtain made from bottle tops and cable ties... too clever and what a lot of work...



This was another fabulous piece made from pieces from all over the world.... celebrating 50 years of flower power.....  it has it's own special blog HERE


.. there was a special table for us visitors to make something ourselves.... as you know it's very hard to resist something crafty so we decorated our own trees....


... now for some of the trees that were decorated....


... I'm sure you can't imagine why I wanted a close look at this trees jacket....


.. for you hexagon crazies ....


There was a Bohemian theme for the trees on the street....



.. something for the camping crazies....


.. the detail on these little pieces (the dolls were hand sized) was amazing...



... of course it was all rather exhausting and coffee was required before the journey home....


What a fun day... righto, gotto go.....  yay, a weekend coming up... enjoy ...xx

Wow! What a spectacle. I think we saw the flower panel at Canberra last year. There really are some clever and creative people out there. I think you deserved your coffee and cake after an event like that.

I can see why you needed some nourishment before spending time looking at all the creative Exibitions .....just fabulous....

One of these days I will get there! Mr Google tells me it is nearly five hours from here (and we would need sustenance stops too, so it would take longer) so that would mean a couple of nights away. I think I could handle that, it would be worth it.

I had heard of yarn bombing trees but didn't get it and although these are pretty I still don't understand why they want to put covers on trees....

Oh wow! What a feast for the eyes Fiona... & every piece so much work & detail!
Gotta love the yarn-bombed trees - we have one around the corner from us, the lady just keeps adding to it & removing what's faded & falling apart, it's so funny.
Great to see you had a wonderful day out! xx
