Bees and Bee Hive

I finished this picture today, my main inspiration was after tatting the 🐝 beehive in Pam Palmer’s book Tatting Treats, just felt I needed to do something with this latest creation. Well actually I doubled the stitching on the original pattern so that it would be more of a feature.  I then went over to my New Critters on the Block book by Martha Ess and made lots of Itty-Bitty Bumble Bees 🐝. The flower at the right is supposed to represent lavender but can actually be any flower, it’s just that bees 🐝 like lavender.

It was a bit of a challenge trying to get it in the right position in the frame, all the tatting is sewn on to a piece of material. Quite pleased with the result.

More Lavender Wands

I started making these Lavender Wands in August and after a few weeks abandoned the project leaving the usual mess behind! Today I finished sewing on the tatted trims and they are now hanging in my wardrobe with a lovely smell of Summer coming from the clothes that are in there. 

I am now sorting and tidying all the other accessories that are connected with tatting,  which have sadly got into a mess, this does not include thread. Really enjoying the challenge as well as down sizing. After which hopefully I will be a little more tidier!
