"The Bees....The Beeeeeeeees......." *
Today I'm playing along again with Kirsty, I have not had a chance to do this in a while, but it is not because I've not been creative- it is because, quite frankly, I am a very lazy photographer. There, I said it.
I am totally confounded as to why I find it so utterly difficult to pull out a Digital camera, set it to Auto,then point and shoot! Especially after spending long years in the dark room doing all of this myself- developing, pushing, cross processing, enlarging, burning, dodging.... now I do it by plugging the camera in and clicking on one or two buttons with Canon Software.... oh goodness lazy old me!
Today's Creative Space takes place on my couch.
I am making more of the Bee Boy Rattles in the beautiful Kokka fabric from Kelani.
I bought this linen Bee print fabric so long ago and have been waiting to find matching corderoy. Where do people buy good quality corderoy I wonder? Usually I just stumble upon it by accident in my frequent thrift shop pilgrimages. This corderoy is Colonel Mustard yellow and black.
Bee boy is getting new wings sketched today as his sample wings were too big and made turning out difficult.
See how beautiful the print is.
Bees drinking tea is really too cute.
I drew his face on as a way of reducing time, it takes about 13 seconds to draw as opposed to 10 minutes to embroider. But I do love embroidered faces so. Perhaps I will do some of each.
My kitchen has a creative space of its own at the moment as I have started making my Christmas cards for my lovely brothers and sisters. And I cannot tell you what is materialising in my sewing space as it is a project for next week, however I promise to be more adept at photographing my little creative ventures from this moment forth.
