I  love the calming colour of bluebells. I struggle a little with their heavily sweet perfume and almost always end up with hay fever but they are beautiful.

I have started a series of bluebell inspired items. I am greatly enjoying creating the textured layers of the woodlands. The embroidered bluebells are added last.


  1. Gorgeous work, Sue - I visited my favourite local bluebell woods today, but they are not quite at their best...a couple more days and the buds will be fully open to create that lovely haze of blue xx

  2. Fabulous work, Sue, and (English) bluebells are my favourite flowers. We have some in the woodlandy patch at the bottom of the garden, flowering for the first time this year (a grand total of three spikes!). Hopefully there'll be a few more next year!
