Busy as a bee........

A little while back I posted a mystery item, part of a holiday project I was working was a pile of bee wings........and here's that project - my inkling for 2013 'Bee Happy Honey'. It's a hive of little bees that have found themselves in new homes this holiday season. The bodies are inkle woven, the wings drawn, scanned, printed on vellum and then laminated, faces handstitched and bodies embellished with some fun finds from the scrapbook section of the craft store. Hmm.......have to start brainstorming for next year's inklings....have many ideas in the back of my mind but will have to see which one strikes me later in the new year. The little bees are #22 in the series I started many years ago that I've gifted to some family & much as I'd love to give away more inklings each year they are limited edition ornaments.


  1. Those are so cute! What a wonderful tradition.

  2. OMG, those are adorable. You come up with SUCH creative ideas Cindie. I'm all a buzzzzzzzzz!

  3. My new inkling is indeed happy to BE with her friends in her new home. Thank you!!!


I love your comments - thank you!
