Someone found this park bench a bit hard to sit on and decided to take matters into their own hands!
Straight Out Of the Camera Sunday
Good grief!!! Knitting and crochet is turning up in so many public places lately! Are you sure this isn't another one of your works of art? What a cool find!!!
this is just toooo funny. made me laugh when it opened. i can't even imagine someone doing all that work on a park bench. did you sit on it to see if it made it softer? have that picture in my HEAD... LOL.
Hysterical. I agree with Ginny, random piece of public art?
A work of art it may be, but not an "official" one. I first saw a picture of it in the newspaper. They interviewed the town's head gardener about it (the bench is in the town park) but he seemed mostly amused. I think it was a few days or a week later that I passed the bench myself and the "decoration" was still there, but partly beginning to fall off. I straightened it out a bit before I took the photo ;) That was four days ago; not sure if it's still there.
Very cool idea. Some park benches are hard. I think it is fun.
HA! You find some of the greatest things. Never have I seen one of these :)
That is so funny! I love it.Teresa
Too funny! I wonder why someone put it there?" - somehow I don't think it would have been because the bench was hard. Whatever the reason, I bet lots of people appreciated it.
I've read about it this kind of thing but not seen it before. As Ginny says, I think it has become sort of trendy, a kind of textile graffiti. Our town is a textile centre and has a textile college. I guess (but have no proof!) that it might have been an end-of-term student prank.
I love this trend for apparently spontaneous public art and, indeed, for the amount of public outdoor art that there now is.
That made me laugh! But...after a while she has to start mending:)
Communication is what makes blogging fun :)
