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.
Yes, it’s lovely.ReplyDelete
Looks great. I like the mottled fabric too which looks more like sky.ReplyDelete
