Back to Bumbles.

I`ve been concentrating on making bumble bees this week ,  a few brooches and embroidery hoops to top up my Etsy shop and to send down to Made in Britain in Bristol. I really enjoyed it as I hadn`t made them for a while and it was nice to make something that reminded me of Summer on such dark, gloomy Autumnal days.bees and ladybirds for etsy 070Three brooches for my Etsy shop.

4 inch bee hoop 015This little piece, printed with Livingstone daisies, came from the same curtain. Just perfect for adding a little bee and setting in a cute 4″ hoop.
