Patterns: The Bee

Queen Bee

What Delilah Did has recently opened her own pattern shop and I love her bee design. This looks quite complex but I can imagine the feeling of satisfaction once this is stitched up. It looks amazing in gold and as lovely as this photo is, I bet it doesn't do the gold thread justice.

For further insect love check out this vintage pattern in Flickr's Hoop Love Vintage Transfer pool.

  6. She's awesome and has mastered the metallic thread. I bow to anyone that can do that.
