Wrapped Up: Yarnbombing at Morris Arboretum











We took a trip over to Morris Arboretum this weekend and were delighted to see the latest installation by fiber artist Melissa Maddonni Haims of Philadelphia. These are a couple of pics of my favorites. Do go and see them in person if you can. I really liked how the pieces were placed throughout the arboretum. It was like getting a surprise every time you turned on the path. You can read more about Melissa and how the installation came to be here. I hope you will visit Morris Arboretum soon if you are in the Philadelphia area. It's such a lovely place and it was exciting to see this type of fiber art outdoors.


Remember, you can always choose to knit or crochet your worries away. 

Stress less,

Margaret
