It’s time for this month’s merry-go-round post, where eleven women write about one topic.

This month, we’re taking inspiration from last month’s photos. I was inspired by Kim’s photo of the aquilegia flowerin her garden.

Some pink silk, upholstery fabric for the leaves, and wire stems. I looked at some illustrations of the flower to see how the leaves are shaped, and made a prototype from linen. And I came up with two silk flowers.

I even kept the pattern, so I can make more! Just in case you didn’t click on Kim’s photo above, here it is:

A fear of messing up and wasting the viewers’ time came back each week, until I noticed that it felt fun to get on camera.
