What are you most proud of? I think the peonies look pretty good for a first try.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Hang in there! It takes a bit of time to make a peony, so just block off a few hours and go for it. It's relatively easy to make, if you follow Nicholas Lodge's steps, you can't mess it up.
