A sweet little mixed media Sewing Bee created from a small vintage wooden cotton reel, handmade honeycomb, needle and felt bee.
I made this piece from a vintage Sylko wooden cotton reel, the original label is visible on the top. The thread is a warm light brown colour described on the label as 'Nutmeg'. The bobbin is smaller than the ones I usually use, I've shown this in one of the photos.
The little bee, I hand stitched with thread, felt and wire. The honeycomb is made from painted and varnished paper and filled with honey coloured resin. The piece is completed with a threaded sewing needle.
The piece measures 4cm high by 3cm wide.
