This weekend I was able to spend a big chunk of time with my friends Susan & Sarah. Susan, from Bridgeport, drove 2 1/2 hours to pick me up in North Platte, & then we drove a little over an hour to see our friend Sarah who lives right outside of Kearney, in Odessa, NE.
And one of the things we did on our super fun girlfriend hanging out time was: yarn bombing. Susan brought along a long scarf-like piece she had stitched up, while I brought two leaves I knitted.
We found our target: a STOP sign near a railroad track, along some country road. It might seem like a bit ridiculous to yarn bomb in the middle of nowhere. But we figured the country-folk need to smile too. And besides, it was in a very convenient location where our sweet friend Sarah would be able to see it everyday. And smile.
Under the veil of darkness, illuminated by the car headlights, we quickly stitched the stem & leaves onto our "flower". (A train even rumbled by during our secret knitting episode.)
If randomly making people smile is not an act of kindness, then I don't know what is.
