Retro Flowers Status Update

Tonight I started to pin my petals together for the Retro Flowers quilt.  I used 200 pins and I only got through the red.  This is going to take awhile. 
Since I'm only using 12 fabrics, I am repeating the first row for the fourth.  So, I have double the amount of red, pink, orange and yellow petals.  That's a lot of pins.  I may have to do this in batches.  Not going to lie, I'm a little nervous about sewing these curves.
On a completely different note - my parents just got back from visiting friends in Florida and they brought back the best present ever.
 I have wanted a set of pink plastic flamingos for a very long time.  There is just something about them that I love!  I just need to think up an awesome way to display them.  Still undecided about leaving them outside.  I would hate to ruin them.  Now all I need are some lawn gnomes and my collection of tacky lawn ornaments will be complete.  Awesome!!  Flamingos make everyone smile!
In closing, here is my pretty Buddha girl posing for the camera and Sushi sunning himself.
