Another Batch of Bumbles and Butterflies.

Last week it was all about bees and butterflies again as I concentrated on finishing some more brooches and lavender hearts. I also had a commission for some bee sketches from a nice lady via my Etsy shop.

The drawings gave me a chance to look closely at bumble bees again and inspired a few more brooches.

Two new bumble bee lavender hearts. I chose pale vintage linen so that the bees really stood out.

I love the colours in this butterfly, my favourite brooch from the latest batch!

  1. I adore and admire embroidery and especially your butterflies and the new moths. My Premo blog is all about bees, honey and floral tea and couldn’t resist giving you a mention in article “Bees in the artist eye”. Hope you don’t mind but such lovely work. Judi
