A busy couple of days.

Things have been pretty busy here Chez Agenda for the last couple days. Yesterday was Hubby's birthday, so I spent a good amount of time making him the birthday cake he gets every year and the dinner he requested.

Then last night he got a call from a high school friend who was in town just for today.  Long story short, we met her and her partner for lunch today, and I ended up spending the rest of the afternoon with them.  We walked around Michigan Avenue, then took the Water Taxi to Willis Tower and spent some time up there looking out at the city.

As we were walking from the water taxi stop to the tower, we came across something I wanted to share with you all:


This installation was right around the corner from Willis Tower, but I wasn't really paying attention to what street we were on.

Some of the balls you could tell were just wrapped in sweaters, like this one:


But others looked hand crocheted:


And then there was this one lone yarn-bombed tree:


I have to admit I'm not a big fan of yarn-bombing, but it did pull me up short to see these in the middle of the city.

And here's just one of the views from up top:


It was a gorgeous, warm, sunny day - the first we've had in a while, so it was very nice to be up there looking down at the city.

  2. How lucky that your friends got a bright sunny day to enjoy the city. I just love it when I stumble upon public art like those that you saw - it's always so inspiring!

  3. I've never seen yarn bombing "in person", just in pictures. How fun to happen upon it!
