April BJP

Hi everyone, I have chosen the State flower of Canberra, the Royal Bluebell Wahlenbergia aloriosa as my April BJP. It flowers from October to March with flowers up to 2-3cm on long slender stems. It measures approx 6 x 9 cm (2 1/2" x 3 1/2").

Thought you might be interested in looking at this beadwork by Margaret Lee She specialises in Japanese bead embroidery and uses size 15 and 12 beads. It looks like she uses delicas as well but it's hard to tell from photos.
