Bourke Street Melbourne ~ spring flowers for a lovely Spring Day

Today was the perfect Melbourne Spring day ~ warm sunshine and loads of people out and about in the city. My facebook friends from over at The Yarn Corner  had organized to Yarn Bomb a squiggly piece of metal in the Bourke Street Mall just outside the  G.P.O.Building.  I am not sure what the metal piece really represents in the way of street art, but after we all added our crafty bits to it, it looked spectacular.  My very small contribution was just 4 hand knitted flowers, not much compared to some, Kylie even managed to spell out BOURKE STREET in Knitting !
We all wanted to go and have coffee after we finished, but people kept coming up, taking photos, asking us about it, so we dawdled for quite some time, chatting to all these interested locals and tourists.

I'm sure some of the girls got to go for coffee afterwards, but I headed back home. I just love the different bits each one did, all joined up as one.  I can't wait for our next project, maybe a tree somewhere that needs a pretty coat?
