Pattern of the Month - January 1999
Bumblebee (2 shuttles)
I know, I know...Winter has just begun - at least for those of us in or near a snow belt - and I'm already dreaming of warmer weather with the following bumblebee piece.
The head and wing sets are rings, the body is a series of chains and the bottom of the bee, to help define the lower body into more of a "point" is a Josephine Knot. Make one central picot on the head and cut at the end to make the antennae.
