Petunia





 I thought I'd share this finished at last girl with you this week,
 as I'm having to have a break and take it easy (after a couple of minor 
operations/stitches in my face and arm ... I'm not used to this sort of stitching aargh!)


The original idea for this girl, came from a costume I wore in a school play many years ago. 
A group of  us who were flowers, wore huge petals around our heads
 and performed a dance. But the thing  I remember most, is that just before 
we went on stage - my fingers were slammed in the hinge of a door! Good timing that.



Anyway, Miss Petunia doesn't have any fingers to worry about that happening! 
She'll be at the Reverse Garbage exhibition
'Salvage Garden' in Brisbane opening May 12th.x
