A blog recording the making of 100 flowers over 100 days for the 100 Day Project. The flowers will be sewn onto a cape. Because I can. That's all.

Day 20: a fifth of the way there
Today's effort is another play with black and white. The flower has been superimposed on a bruised and bleeding Palestinian flag (shamelessly stolen from Neetflux)in memory of the Palestinian children massacred by the Israeli assault on Gaza. Yes, I too was brought up believing in the right of Israel to defend itself - Exodus and all that - but changed my mind when the Israelis bombed Gaza zoo. The peacocks might have been firing rockets at Jerusalem but it seems improbable. As I write this, news of another school in Gaza bombed. In packed Gaza there is nowhere to run.
