William Morris insect



Yesterday i finished making an insect in a William Morris print........
I think I like him,he does look slightly odd next to the other ones that I have made ,less threatening I guess.
Today i'm working on some scarab/dungbeetle shaped ones pictures will follow soon.




There are so many insects out there and so many different ones to make,have a look at some of these images by insect photographer Igor Iwanowicz hes amazing.
Google his work it's out of this world.







I don't think Vivienne is too impressed with the state of my workroom!




Oh dear!

  3. I guess Vivienne is the cat?......well knowing cats so well, I reckon thats a very laid back puss who would take 'whatever-workroom' in her stride lol
    Great idea to use WM fabrics that way. Seems very fitting to use it celebrationally, for something so natural and so much a part of the Arts and Crafts ideology.
    WoW what bizarre but magnificent insects too !
