My first dark centered flower. I can see more blooming in the future. I would like to use brown but my stash does not contain any suitable ones, so I guess that means a trip to the fabric store.

More inspiration

Don't worry, that is a stuffed monkey Mac is carrying in the background. Unfortunately he loves to pull the stuffing out of his stuffed toys, so there is a mess to clean up, but he has so much fun doing it.

I've cleaned up the garden since this picture, but I left the sunflowers for the birds and the poppies because they are still so pretty.

Both are pretty flowers, the fabric version and nature's version. I like your reasoning for heading to the fabric store. Sounds logical to me :)
