This is a bee brooch that I made last year using linen as the base fabric. For the wings I used some vintage trim that was just perfect for this project.The piece is now in my personal collection.
The other day I met a stubborn bee while I was washing the dishes. She was convinced that if she pushed hard enough she could get through the glass of my kitchen window. The window was open but this little bee kept trying to find the best place to get through the glass. I ended up giving her a hand so she could go back to work. She said something like: Bzzzz. I think that that means "thanks a lot" in bee language :)
