Wednesday/ a house wrapped up in cloth

This is an old house close to 15th Avenue and Republican Street that is now all covered up in embroidered and knitted cloth.  It used to be a second-hand and antiquarian book store.  If the house is meant as a public work of art, no mention of it is made on the fencing around the house.   And it’s about to start raining every day here in Seattle – better take the cloth down before it becomes bedraggled with rain water, no?

The front of the house, steps and porch and all covered in embroidered (or knitted) cloth.
Here’s a Google Streetview shot. It’s the house behind the white picket fence,  right next to the Coastal Kitchen restaurant on 15th Ave.
