Curlypops' Hottie Challenge - Los 33

For me, the Chilean Mine Rescue began and ended with notes: a tiny crumpled piece of paper that emerged from deep beneath the ground, telling us that the 33 miners were alive and in the shelter...


...and an unfurled sheet for the underground camera held up by the 6 rescuers who’d gone down to help the miners back to the surface: Mision Cumplida Chile.


And in between was the rescue shuttle, painted in the Chilean colours, bringing the men up to safety, one by one.


Crafty blogger extraordinaire Camille (aka Curlypops) recently organised the Hottie Challenge, a group entry by bloggers to an Open Drawer fundraiser for the Margaret Pratt Foundation, which funds research on Heart & Lung Transplants. This is my hot water bottle cover for the Challenge The entries will all be displayed in Opendrawer's Gallery (1158 Toorak Road, Camberwell) from Friday July 1 to Sunday July 24
