Bending the Rules Thread Painting

Little honey bee- I like this a lot. Also his big sunflower friend.

Sunflower, photographed in the blog classic "throw it on the cleanest spot in your house" method. I did this project from Amy Karol's new book Bend the Rules With Fabric. I like this book as much as the first book. Also check out her online tutorials on no swearing, no pinning bias binding and fold over elastic. Her aesthetic is a little more spare than mine. ( of course, my approach to color is similar to an explosion in a crayon factory.) Her directions, encouragement, and wide open attitude is the best ever, though.

As for me, I have rescued the shirt with the weird grease spot. ( Yes, Mr Wolly, I am very sensitive about grease spots on clothes. It's bad enough that I am a fat chick, but a fat chick with a weird grease spot on her shirt? ewww.)

Who notices the grease spots when you're so good looking?

Mr. Woolly (who's that Wolly guy?)

I imagine the little boys with the beehives at the other end of town would love that honeybee. And the sunflower! My finches out there would love it!
