soon to bee in the shop...
After a weekend of intermittent internet service (grrr), and a morning on the phone with the DSL folks (grrrr), plus a camera card reader that just wouldn't read the card (grrrrr), I finally got this picture of my Beaming Bee embroidery uploaded.
Typically, I don't do fill stitches, but I thought I might try it out for this little guy. I sort of have mixed feelings. The textures that it gives are nice, but it makes this area of the stitching very stiff. Plus the fabric I've been using stretches a bit, so there's some pucker around the edge of the bee. So, I don't know. What do you think?
Regardless of how this version of the bee came out, patterns for this, as well as the coordinating hive, honey jar and smoker and a few extras, will be added to the shop by tomorrow.
And...a huge thank you to Tiffany for nominating me for the Pimpstich blogroll! (Thanks to the talented ladies at Pimpstitch too!)
