Bumblebees and flowers, framed quilling

Bumblebees and flowers, detail

This is my new quilling. As always, it's made using hand-cut strips. For bumblebees' wings I used tracing-paper. The finished work is framed in a hand-made and hand-colored paper frame. Size: 10x18 cm (4x7 inch) without frame. Here are some more pictures:

Bumblebees and flowers, pattern

The pattern is taken from Helen M Stevens Embroiderer's Countryside, which is a very beautiful book on embroidery.

Inna another perfect piece of art! Love the bees and their delicate wings! You Should really write a book with all your patterns, it would sell!!!!

Thank you Jeanne and Sonya!
Sonya, I even don't know where to start. Besides this, I'm almost sure that here in Israel nobody will need such a book :(

One more amazing piece of art!

Inna, I so need to see the pattern or get some ideas to make the bumblebee. I have a lady turning 90 and my mom who is 91 wants me to create a bumblebee birthday card. Can you help me please? It would mean the world. Also did Martha say there was a video that you had for tips? Thank you again.

Mary, I don't have a pattern for the bumblebee. I just made this sketch and then "played it by ear". You may click one of the images to enlarge it and make something similar. You can also try another, a simpler one, like here or here. I indeed made a video with a cute bumblebee from pompoms (here), but not sure if it can be used for a card, unless you use really small pompoms, and without the toothpick.
Let me know if you can't manage it.

Inna, honestly you should write a book with your creations and detailed descriptions and pictures on how to create some of your out of this world creations. It may not sell in Israel, but I am sure it will be a hit in UK and USA.
