The Fellowship of the Ring {An Art project}

Hello friends, today is the 10th of December and twenty years ago Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring premiered in London, so I decided to join my love of Tolkien with my love for embroidery and recreate the map of Middle Earth. (I’m too scared to iron it incase I burn it!)

A trio of bees {Art}

Continuing with my fascination for Bees and other insects (but mainly bees), I thought I do a post of the current bee art that I’ve recently finished.

The bumble bee 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!)

Embroidered bumblebee {Art}

Hello friends, I hope the week treated you well!

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.

The hoop its in is six inches across and sewn in tiny stitches, I love the fact that the wings look realistic by sewing the threads in different directions.

I absolutely love embroidery, its so soothing and you really feel that you’ve achieved something when a project is finally finished.

Thank you for visiting have a great week.
