These are inspired by a dish that i got while living in seattle. its covered in bees in colors that are mute and natural. these are the beginings of these longies. the bee isn't done yet and i'm not sure i'm keeping the head part that color. i was just experimenting with color to help it pop more. i still need to color in the second set of wings and the embroidery that will go around the legs. the bee was harder then i expected. this was my third try at getting something that didn't look silly. i didn't want to do straight duplicate stitch so this is a mix media, if you will, version utilizing straight stitch and chain stitching.
