A trio of bees

Continuing with my fascination for Bees, the bumblebee and honey bee are both drawn free hand and created using Arteza brush pens and Windsor Newton black ink and the embroidered bumblebee is sewn using a single strand of coloured floss at a time onto a natural (and excitingly eco friendly, recycled calico!)

It’s been so lovely to study the photos of bees from the garden.

We may be on course to run out of food and/or petrol but at least we can have #FlowersOnFriday p.s – if you read this and you’re not in the the UK don’t panic!

Embroidered bumblebee

So I’ve had a bit of a crappy week, and to relax, get my brain into the right space and bee a little bit more zen I’ve sat quietly and embroidered myself a little bumble bee. Its all sewn free hand using a single strand of coloured floss at a time onto a natural (and excitingly eco friendly, recycled calico!) It’s been so lovely to study the photos of bees from the garden…as we have at least five types of bee I might sew one for each.
