This is a gift I’m making for my mom. She’s really into bees but I guess you could see that for yourself.
It’s in the early planning stages, obviously. There are many, many, many mistakes. I wasn’t pleased with the beehive on a branch band until the very bottom. And some of the bees are very weird.
But I couldn’t tell how my charted designs would look until I stitched them up so this is a learning process.
It’ll eventually take the form of a sampler, with bands of repeating motifs. I’m also going to be using bands of flowers from blackwork books.
(I can’t edit the pictures of my charted designs so when I can figure that out I’ll update this post.)
