Morning Glory

This photo was taken last September in the
neighborhood.

Morning Glory are my favorite flowers and this is
my September page. I found a small branch from
my front yard. The fabric was green and I painted
it brown with fabric paint. I embroidered gray yarn
on the edges. I used lucite purple/pink flowers and
large leaves.
I started my own collection of flower pins.

Here is my flower pin that I wore.

That pin is lovely, Jean. Your backround material give the whole thing such a nice texture.

I just scrolled back through all your posts to see your other beaded flowers.... They are ALL sooooooooo lovely! I love the background stitching on your morning glory. It looks stunning as a pin. Do you have 8 finished? If so, I hope you'll follow the BJP website guidelines to set up a member page. They would look wonderful all together. Bravo!!!

I love your flowers and making a pin that can be removed from the background and worn is a great idea!

I'm planning to sign up for next year's bead journal project.
