This one is my very favourite ribbon flower so far. It’s a peony which is definitely my very favourite flower, and a variety of peony that’s new to me – a sorbet peony. It’s pink, which is, of course, my very favourite colour. And it was made with nothing but loads and loads of curved piecing, my very favourite thing.
The back of the sorbet peony. I didn’t realize until I took the photograph that I had forgotten to grade the seams. It will only take a few minutes to do.
The next flower that will be blooming will be the shaggy orange coneflower. After that will be the petunia. Then it will be time to choose some more flowers to add to my garden and get the shapes printed for those flowers. Most, if not all, of the remaining flowers need to be shades of pink as I’ve got a fair number of purple and orange flowers but nowhere near as many pink/deep pink/red flowers as I would have thought would be growing in my garden!
I know this photo isn’t as sharp as it could be, but I couldn’t resist posting it. I love it when cats have the tip of their tongue sticking out just a tiny bit, as Jake does here.
