April bjp pin

My April bjp pin was inspired by a photo of a spring flower on my friend Dee's sister's blog. I don't know the name of the flower. I loved the wonderful combination of colors. This is my first time doing the herringbone stitch. I found the directions for the fuchsia part of the flower in the April 2009 Bead & Button magazine. The center is a peyote stitch circle of beads.

I love it. This brings me such good memories. It reminds me of the large flower pins women wore in the late 1960's. I bought a couple for my mom to brighten her dresses she had to wear at work.

You did a really nice job with the colors too. It's gorgeous.
