here he is (although a bit blurry):




I was visiting an urban exhibition (urbis) with my sister before she went to New Zealand for 3 months.... One of the best bits was the graffiti installation:


www.thelondonpolice .com are responsible for that...


My sis and I loved it so much that I was insired to make her an amigurumi version for her birthday, made stripey as she is mad into stripes and it suited him!

So Urbis was made, parcelled up to her boyfriend's to take out to New Zealand where he spent the next month bobbing around in the cab of their campervan, seeing penguins, snow snow and more snow!

(I am hoping that 2 rounds of BLO stitches don't discount this guy as an amigurumi!)

I took a photograph of you in the herbaceous border,

It broke the heart of men and flowers and girls and trees.
