Finally working on my Solstice Dream project again.
I'm up to the bees on the last block needed to complete the centre panels. I have to admit I have been a bit hesitant about making these bees. The stitch used is called Turkey work, or Turkey knots and is actually what is used to make Turkish rugs. After watching a couple of you tube tutorials, I had a couple of practice attempts and then on to the real things. Gosh they use up a lot of thread, and make a bit of a mess when it's time to trim them. The result is a very tactile if somewhat unusual coloured bee. Only two to go, though I think my hair cutting skills need a little work before I'm totally pleased with them.
