It looks wonderful. I love that you did it in the Aboriginal flag design, aside from the meaning it makes it visually striking. Hooray for a crafty way to celebrate the govt finally apologising.

It really looks fantastic. I've been following this reconciliation because a couple of my favorite bands have been involved with promoting it (like Silverchair and the John Butler Trio). I think it's wonderful that the government can admit its wrongs and apologize for them. (I sincerely wish the US government could do the same thing sometimes!  Wink) Great job!

It's on a fence that's part of a bar and they asked me to do it so it probably won't be harmed during their opening hours.  But it is an alleyway in the city so I don't expect it to last forever.  It will probably outlast some of the nearby graffiti though!

That's so great!

I'm really happy to see this project.  Just wanted to say that again! Smiley

Good on you! I noticed the news story (in Canada this was compared to our government's policy of sending our native people to Church-run residential schools where their languages were suppressed and they were often abused- but Canada did apologize years ago and has been working on compensation... so I thought it was about time that Australia apologized!). I love the idea of "radical" cross-stitch, and the graffiti-like nature of this piece. It looks like lots of work. You should be proud.

If I had a hammer, I'd cover it with glitter.

Yeah, 1st lane on the left heading into chinatown from Swanston St.  The Bar is the Section 8 Container Bar.  It's also where we have our Craft Cartel market (1st and 3rd Mon of every month, 5pm, plug, plug!)

Thanks for the feedback everyone.  I went back today and had a look at it during the day and I'm so stoked with how it looks.  The wool is really bright and you can see it from the end of the alleyway, but you can't read what it says until you get close.  It kind of draws people in which is brilliant.  I had a chat to the bouncer of the bar and he said heaps of people have been stopping and looking at it. Yay!
