Introducing yarn bombing to my mother-in-law during the Wisconsin portion of our Tour de Heartland road trip was a blast. At first she didn’t’ quite get the concept but it really wasn’t long before the Octogenarian caught on.
My goal was to select a place she could see easily from her car window somewhere on her daily route in her neighborhood and sized to be seen with little effort. So the colorful and textured band now adorns a baseball backstop in Lake Edge Park on Dempsey Road. The heart on it can be a little reminder of our visit and her observation of its installation.
She immediately called her best friend to share the yarn graffiti idea and has taken ownership of it’s place in the park.
Ta-da. Dempsey Doodle-Do – keep on giving mom a smile.
