Updated: Oct 14, 2021

June 2021 - Yumi Mashiki says she wants to get involved in making for the CAOS Yarn Bomb project that I'm running...

She says she has basic crochet skills, suggests she could crochet some letters and asks if there's anything, in particular, I would want on display - #LoveLifeLifeLovesYou in crochet is born and 'railed' in July! I particularly love that Yumi let me know how amazing she felt while focusing on the letter creation, the motto giving her good vibes with every stitch. Ahh, love, love, love! Yumi is a composer, she's pretty kick-ass, she composed music for the Olympics 2021. And she crocheted my motto in the same year. I say that's pretty cool beans and I loved meeting her for the first time when she came to the Ponds to drop the bag of goodies off, stayed for a catch-up, a natter, and helped add them to the railings. It was our mutual artist friend, Neal Vaughan, who connected us.
