Australian ANZAC Slouch Hat Brooch.

Yes it's clay! This wonderful little hat is made by Amanda Hunt for the PCAGOE May challenge - historical. Amanda, who resides in Perth, Australia, writes, "Seeing as the theme this month was historical events, this seemed the most appropriate for Australians. This month we remember our fallen soldiers on ANZAC Day (April 25). We remember fallen Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) who fought at Gallipoli in Turkey during World War Il. They shall not grow old, as we who are left grow old. Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning, we will remember them. Lest we forget." Amanda's shop is filled with a wide variety of polymer creations, including some wonderful retro cane items - old dial phones, TV, and rollerskates just to name a few. Find out more about Amanda from her blog at

There are two days left in the PCAGOE challenge. There are lots of great prizes to be won by 5 lucky voters, so if you haven't voted, VOTE HERE!

Another fun new cane! In this one I used some old tiny heart canes from a class ages back, some flower canes from a more recent class, a left over skinner jelly roll from my other kaleidoscope cane and some left over background cane from my Kachina canes - then added a bit of checkerboard, a skinner blend heart, and some blue stripes. Tomorrow is PCAGOE's Clay & Play Thursday and I should have a few lovely creations from these fun new canes to show! It's been a wonderful adventure for me making kaleidoscope canes and they turned out much more beautiful than the pencil sketches I timidly made to lay them out. I have a ton more old canes in need of recycling, so the adventure continues!

It's over-the-hump day which means half way until Friday! YEAH!
