Yarnbombing And Heart Felts – Part 2

14 Feb

We got in the car and drove to our first secret yarnbombing location . Still raining.

‘Do I have to get out of the car and stand over you with an umbrella ? ”  my sweetheart said resignedly .

‘Oh no ”  I said ‘”Just wait  , it’s very quick to wire a felt heart to a fence ”

I got out and squished along the fence looking for the perfect spot  . Everything has a perfect place , vases of flowers , tables in resturants , a spot of red in a painting , a heart on a fence . You can fell it in your body when something balances.

I found the perfect spot on the fence and started wiring . I got the heart barely sewn on when a huge truck pulled right up to the gate and a man got out and glared at me  . I walked briskly over to our car and got in.

‘Can you drive away  now please? ” I whispered to my sweetie .

” No , he’s blocked our car ” he said

We all sat and looked at each other and then he opened the fence , drove through it  and let out his 2 big dogs .

‘Let’s go now and come back later ‘ I said and we quickly drove off.

We drove to our second fence and I got out and stood at the fence . A security guard came and stood at the other side of the fence. I felt like such a vandal ! I went across the street and found a different fence and put up this felt heart. My sweetie and I both agreed that the red heart was a little lost against the red fence but I think the artists in the building will like having  the art

So off we went to fence 3. I picked this fence because a dear friend works at this secret place and I hope he notices .

By now the sun had come out . I was starting to lose my grip . I can never tell if people are going to come and yell at me or think this is the best thing ever. I sewed up my heart. A bunch of kids wandered by. Oh no ! Kids always notice what I’m doing unlike the adults in cars and on phones.

” Person ! Person ! What are you doing ?

I needed a little rest. And lunch . Can’t people tell if I’m a boy or a girl ?  We went home . I needed to ready myself for Heart Fence Supreme…..here I am again here

    I love your hearts! Why do people have to be so miserable though – do they really have such sad lives that they fail to see the beauty in a piece of art? I hope that you keep on doing what you do – it’s wonderful and makes the planet a much better place :))
