Yarn Bombing

Growing up in the Midwest, in a Catholic community, May was ‘Mary’s Month.’ Here in Bled, Slovenia, there is a 600-year-old church on an island in Lake Bled. The only access is by rowing a wooden boat across the water, docking near a small stacked-stone, hand-made grotto that houses a statue of the Blessed Virgin Mary. It is bedecked with ivy and adorned with wildflowers. It seemed only fitting to place this garland inspired by the oceans of wildflowers alongside the roads around Bled.

Yarndoodler caught in the act.
