I am just about to embark on the final touches of large honeysuckle - just as well, I need it for a class in three week.
It is coming along nicely - I am so, so happy with the way the unopened flowers turned out. The padding is fat and round and you just have to stroke them. Not sure, but I might even like them better than the open ones.
Every single time I do one of these little bees it surprises me how this...
... after a more than a bit of trimming, and combing, and fluffing up, and more trimming, and more combing, and more fluffing up, and more trimming, and a bit more combing, fluffing and trimming - can possibly end up looking like this....
But it does. Now all she needs is a couple of eyes to find her way, some wings to take her there and some legs to stand on once she gets there.
