This is going to work. I kept looking at my rough drawings and horrors, the spine looked too short. Thought maybe i'd have to lengthen it somehow to support the other element, but nope, thank goodness: look at the actual work, arlee! (My sketches are really rough! :) ) It may be a made up body and bumblesbees aerodynamically wrong too in their structure, but it still has to make some sense in proportion to all its parts. I do have *some* rules :) (And no, this is not a bumblebee, i'm just talking about nature and design.)
I was proudly considering this done, when i remembered i wanted some hip bones in there as well right where those eucalyptus leaves show as coral--more stitching tonight!
And the pinions are beautiful. I have one small section left to do and then they can be assembled.
I'll be taking this as my handwork/quiet time work during the Bowen ecoprint workshop. Only 8 sleeps now until i go!
