One last image from the Japanese Festival:
Anna's hummingbird, appeared in the welcome center and promptly started snacking on a flower arrangement. The staff set up a little feeder (should the flowers run dry of nectar), and the bird happily hovered over the crowd all afternoon.
蜂鳥: hachidori (hah-chee-doh-ree)
Hummingbird; literal translation is "bee bird."
And now, back to the show.
I have some beads here, and some thread. Beadweaving ensues. :D
While you can find all manner of beadwork tutorials on the internet, I haven't yet come across one for conjoined daisy stitch. Ergo, I'mma make one meself.
The two are only slightly different:
CDS is stronger and more compact than regular daisy stitch because each flower shares its east and west petals with the one next to it.
This allows flowers to overlap:
In any case, here's how to do it:
All you need are some beads, some string of a gauge small enough to go through those beads, and a thin needle to help you get said string through aforementioned beads. ビーズ、糸、と針しかいらない。簡単でしょう？ ^-^
