Preparing for Spring... with Yarn Bombing

There is a wonderful sculpture on the Wellington Waterfront, Solace in the Wind, by English artist Max Patte. We have been known to have the odd breeze around here, from time to time, and this sculpture leans into it, right at the water's edge just near Te Papa.

Someone has clearly taken pity on him and got him fully kitted out in anticipation of spring, which is after all just around the corner. Just brilliant!I hope he's left in his garments for some time...

Hi there, I just saw your post on The Dreamstress' blog. I was there too. Nice to meet another local quilter who likes historical thigns. Did you come to Coast to Coast last year and see Leimomi's talk?
I like your blog and would love to add it to my blogger dashboard but you don't have a Follow button. So I'll pop you in my fvoruites instead :) Ciao!
