Fiber artist Melissa Maddonni Haims leaned precariously over the railing of the widow’s walk atop historic Mount Pleasant mansion. She was checking her work, a yarn-bombing job commissioned by Philadelphia Parks and Recreation.
“You know, usually this takes place in the middle of the night,” Haims quipped, as she returned to safer ground.
A fiber artist since 2006, Haims once saw yarn bombing as a way to keep busy between projects. She didn’t even bother to take pictures of her work, never thinking she would one day have the opportunity to bomb a historic house.
Yay, finally! It’s still unblocked and I plan on adding tassels with the last red chunk of the skein. I’ll have to make another post when I finally get around to that. Maybe you’ll get to see me wear it. ;D
That’s a queen sized bed it’s draped across, by the way. I’m hoping it’ll be even longer once I block it.
