Christmas market :D

IMAG0753

 

 

Last week we went to the annual Christmas Market at the Distillery District :D It was such a festive place, with carolers singing and lights everywhere and a magnificent Christmas tree.

What really made my day though was this extraordinary installation in the building where all the artist studios are.

It’s built upon what I believe to be a conveyor mechanism (for sending down bottles and boxes when the building functioned as a distillery, perhaps). There were spools of thread in the middle, connected to felt nests with crochet-covered rocks inside!

 They were just precious.

And cheerful buntings made of different kinds of fabric too!

I think I will attempt the crochet-covered rocks in the new year (here’s a free pattern from the Purl Bee if you’d like to give it a try too!).

Wishing you a lovely Sunday :D
