Wings

Yes, two threads of metallic thread work well for the wings of Martha Ess's bee. The one on the far left uses three threads, the others two. I have a swarm!

  3. I love your bees haven't tatted one for ages, it is a lovely pattern and a great idea using metallic thread. I can almost hear them buzzing away!

  7. Great looking bees. I'll tell you a secret. When I first made up the pattern, all my bees were made of 2 strands of embroidery floss. I didn't have a large stash of thread back then, and the local stores didn't have a lot of colored thread, but I had a lot of embroidery floss.

  11. I am glad you showed the thread you used because I really struggle with metallic threads they don't slide well for me.
