November 2008 Bead Journal Project

I finished my November BJP flower pin before
New Year's day. It is a Lotus. The pin size is
3 1/2 " wide by 3 " height.

Six days after New Year my November page was


lotus : a fruit held in Greek legend to a cause
dreamy content and forgetfulness
: a water lily used in ancient Egyptian and
Hindu art and religious symbolism.

I took pictures of Lotus at Stricker Pond last
August. I had to wade in to the water to take
close-up pictures.
I bought a new 60mm f/2.8 Macro lens last

Black-Eyed Susan

Thanks so much for helping me with the
identification of the flower for my October
Bead Journal Project piece. It is a Black-
Eyed Susan. I took pictures at the Rotary
Garden in Janesville last July and thank
you for the nice comments about my Oct.
flower page.
