World Maker Faire 2010, Flushing Meadows Corona Park, Sunday.
It seemed slightly unbelievable that we were going back for another day, but we did. This time I had company.
If anything, Sunday was even busier. The weather was cooler and people were more willing to linger. Here are more messages to the universe that caught my eye:
This one was by a little girl whose mother asked her what her message would be - love, friendship, peace. The girl just shook her head and got to work drawing. Her message to universe? Potatoes.
And so can you.
By afternoon, people were willing to sit down and knit or crochet. Several new squares were created in the last couple of hours.
This lovely woman was a very speedy knitter and figured out how to attach her message very cleverly. And I especially loved her because a very rambunctious little girl asked me to teach her to knit at about 5 p.m. on Sunday. It was about at that time that I began to ever so slightly check out - I felt I had used up just about every last reserve of outward energy. I looked at that cute little girl and tried to meet her but it just wasn't happening. I knew she really didn't have the patience to learn to knit just then and I didn't have the patience to pretend to show her. This woman stepped in and volunteered to show her. I was so grateful!
Now the piece and extra squares are all back with Lion Brand Yarns to be made into blankets for Warm Up America. The messages? I saved them and plan to put them together into book. I think I have more than 400 in total, and each one tells a story.
