True Blue



This weekend I have been rushing to finish a project that is going to be displayed in Canada!  


Does that mean that I now have International Urban Guerrilla Status???


I saw that Magda Sayeg from Knitta Please was asking for contributions from around the world for an upcoming event and as the cyclone was almost upon us and I needed some major  distraction, I thought I would give it a go. Calgary needed caps for some of their traffic bollards, a sort of concrete cylinder, how hard could that be?? See here the Original post 


My brain went into overdrive at what I could create but when it came down to the wire it just had to be something typically Australian didn't it!  


So here they are....




The life saver has a surprise at the back....




I had a huge amount of fun creating these caps.  It is so good when something that is in your head turns out just how you imagined isn't it!


I think they will be easily recognisable as Australian don't you and hopefully give a kick to any homesick Aussies over in Calgary   :-)


Off into the post tomorrow.  I will get a little certificate showing that I participated and hopefully I will see them in a photo on the posts,


Aussie, Aussie, Aussie......Oi, Oi, Oi !

  2. They are amazing. I love the Aussie one and the lifesaver one is so fun I can hardly stand it!

    I love that feeling when something is finished of "That's exactly how I imagined it " . It's one of the best feelings ever.

    Congrats on being internationally famous in advance.

  7. You clever aussie chick! The tail at the back was worth the price of admission. You shame me, though - I haven't got a gorilla bone in my body. Brilliant!
