Far from finished, but you can see where I'm going with it.

The plan is that by mid summer, the face will be distinct enough to make the children laugh, when they come round that side of the garden.

I never did give her a name... but in case you want to know how she has developed, I have just published an update to this article, so scoot over there, and check it out!
