On Sunday late afternoon I was sitting on the couch and all of the blue I decided I wanted to yarn bomb my mailbox. Yes, just like that the idea popped in my head, I don't even know why. The first thing I did was ask my husband if the mailbox was considered our property, not public property and he said yes, it's ours and he also said he didn't mind if I yarn bombed it.
So I grabbed a piece of paper, pen and tape measure and went outside to measure the mailbox.
After putting the kids to bed I grabbed my box of scraps and started making granny squares, then my husband also went to bed and I stayed up still making granny squares. By the time I went to bed I have the 36 squares I needed for the post done.
Monday was a hectic day with jogging in the morning, hospital visit, first day of swimming lessons for this season, little princess had a doctor check up and both kids got flu shots, grocery shopping and in between the regular stuff like house chores, cooking, bathing kids, etc... BUT after everyone went to bed, I stayed up again and made the squares for the mailbox. I was so tired that I made a few mistakes, had to unravel and re-do, but I had a goal, I had to finish it.
At 7 o'clock this morning, I went outside and installed the yarn bomb before my husband left for work. I am really pleased with the way it looks, it makes me smile and that's pretty much I all needed.
