Inspiration; the pollinators






~The practice and importance of pollination fascinates me and feels me with awe. It was just a coincidence really that I have made so many humming birds( my sis loves them ...so I made some).
What I really want is to get into the nitty gritty pollinators( the humming birds are the Marilyn of the pollinators);a whole series celebrating all the not so glamorous pollinators. Did you know mosquitoes pollinate? So these are some inspirations I have been pouring over. I am especially intrigued with the flies as pollinators. Yesterday I took burger to his favorite local museum ; The Texas Memorial Museum and we were both very into the "Hawaiian Flies: Song and Dance Success" exhibit; I found myself particularly taken with their intsy wings. I am going to go sew now and see what happens.....


P.S. belle and burger will be at the Farmers Market this Saturday May 21 unless it is a total washout(not likely)

P.S.S. Young Blood Gallery and Boutique in Atlanta will be carrying belle and burger soon( probably by June!!!)

Hi there! I've been searching for some inspiration and found your lovely blog! Hope you don't mind, but I've been having a wanton rummage through your posts! I think your handmade dresses are gorgeous and I love the hummingbirds.
I've just recently started writing a blog and have ben learning to crochet. Sewing is next on my list after digging out my nan's old sewing machine! If you have time, I'd love for you to take a quick peek at my blog and tell me what you think! Xx
