Yarn bomb :iconkidgolem:KidGolem 6 3 First Tag - Yarn Bomb - Starling :iconvesperwinchester:VesperWinchester 2 1






I thought I would be excited - and I was.  I thought I might be giddy-happy, or feel like a hooking badass - not so much.  It was a new experience to yarn bomb; to leave one of my darlings in a semi-public place to a fate entirely unknown.  To look at someone else's yarn bomb, I think, "Yeah!  Totally! I SO get it!" but to leave my own, I am confronted with the depths of my brain asking, "Are you sure?  Are you sure you're sure?  Why exactly are you doing this again?"  It's future is a mystery.  Will anyone like it?  Will anyone even see it?  It's not in a prominently visible spot because I didn't know how long it would take to stitch it in place.  (Note to self: next time thread the needle BEFORE going onsite!)

It was lovely in place.  I appreciate the colors in their environment.  I could sense the respect with which it was placed (of course I could, dummy) and I could have stared at it for quite a while, but I knew I had to leave it.  My hands have done their work.  My brain, my heart and my soul must catch up.  I can still feel deep gears and wheels turning inside me, processing what I have done.  I have no answers, but a knowledge that I must do it again.  The invisible work that is begun in the depths convinces me of that.
