Earlier this year Julia Herdman and her daughter Kelly came to a bumble bee workshop at GJ Beads in Cornwall. Their bees were destined for a very special occasion, a wedding! They had great plans to make several bees so I was enchanted to receive these lovely pictures (taken by the groom)
Julia told me, ‘ We made nine bees, one in the bride’s bouquet and the rest placed in table decorations and given as gifts to seome of the special guests. The bride was delighted with her bee and a lasting reminder of a truly wonderful day”.
I am so touched! what a lovely destination for my humble bumbles, and I just adore the soft vintage colours of the beautiful bouquet. Bumble bee continues to be a popular workshop, and I’ll be posting next years teaching schedule at the end of October.
