Had such a great day yesterday at In:Site, I decided to crochet bomb a park bench, covering it in my hand crocheted flowers. I had a lot of people stopping and talking to me about what I was doing and best of all could see a lot of people walking past and smiling at it. The whole day was none stop crocheting and sewing to the bench but was well worth it as I was so pleased with the results. In:Site is going on all week with three designers putting together a piece of their work each day so if you're in the Birmingham area I'd recommend you pop down to Cathedral Square (Pigeon Park) and have a look as the place was looking fab on just the second day, I can't wait to see the results on Friday. I'm sad to say I won't be able to make it down in person because I live so far away but I can't wait to see the pictures. Craftspace is the organisation which has put the whole event together so I'm sure many pictures and videos of each day will follow on their Facebook page; http://www.facebook.com/SamanthaClaireTextiles#!/craftspace their twitter; https://twitter.com/tweetcraftspace and https://twitter.com/WeLoveCraft as well as their website; http://www.craftspace.co.uk/page.asp
I met so many lovely people and had such a great day and it's really made me consider taking part in events like this in the future as part of my career, I better get researching... watch this space!
The finished piece from far away, I love the brightness of it and this is the main element passers by would comment on.
The gazebo where we sheltered from the - very few thankfully - showers of rain.
The final piece close up! I'm very happy with the results.
