I like peonies! I have a peony bush in my back yard but the flowers lasted for about a week. And then Donna came up with her peony pattern...and now I have visions of a peony and bells of Ireland arrangement in my living room. That will be coming in a few months :-)
But for now... Peony pattern by Donna DeAngelis Dickt. It even has a cute little bud. The pattern calls for 8 hanks of petal color beads.
