Don't know why exactly, but I got the urge to make a small army of gardenias.
I have a vague impressionistic vision of a floating gardenia head piece - don't have a clear idea of how to pull it off. I suspect the finished product will morph into something quite different from my initial idea.
I had a great time making these little guys. I have a high tolerance for mindless-repetitive-assembly-line type work. There is something very satisfying about plugging into music or an audio book and just cranking out multiples of whatever it is that needs to be made... Plus, I enjoy the visual impact of a whole group of same-ness.
