I have been very lucky recently, going to a lampshade making course and then meeting Heather Everitt at an embroidery class yesterday. The lampshade is now in use in my bedroom. I really enjoyed making it and can’t capture how lovely it looks.
I really want to make a Marna Lunt inspired one but that can wait until I have some time at Christmas. I want t be able to spend time on that project and leave it out to finish over a few days.

All of us had a pattern to follow and off we went. Three hours later and my bee looked like this :
