am i, like, a REAL artist now?!?!

Since my ANZAC day tag made it into the West, I have been approached by the City of Perth to contribute a piece to the Art in Bloom in the City event in September. Crazy exciting!! I am collaborating with a lovely friend, and crafter/crocheter extraordinaire. You can find her here. The spot where we will be installing our crochet creation in the Greenwall in the Northbridge Piazza. It is a huge, and I mean MASSIVE wall - about 8m x8m we estimate.

So, now is the hard bit - coming up with a concept and design!! Apart from having a floral theme, we have free reign. So many ideas!

I have also been trying something new (well, new to me, having been inspired by many other's creations) - the crochet covered stone. Not really happy with this one, but hey, it's only the first try!

The gumnut hat was a bit of a winner, and I now have a small family of them! It think some Wild Tea Cosies are next!


  1. Wow, that is very exciting for you......
    That looks like an awesome space, structure to work with.......

  2. thanks! a great space and definitely the structure is perfect to install onto - it is just HUGE!!!! :)

  3. oh my your going to try to cover that whole thing.

    maybe you can put little cats and dogs in some of the boxes. make some in to tvs. have some gogo dancers up there

  4. haha! great suggestions - we have to have a floral theme, so we are thinking really huge flowers placed all over, but still a huge job!! :)

  5. Congratulations and all the best wishes with your latest huge project. I look forward to visiting it.
    and I like the stone... it's very cute.
