I recently purchased a little Tansy beetle kit from Mother Eagle Arts who can be found here – https://linktr.ee/mother_eagle_arts The Tansy beetle was once widespread in the UK, but is now very threatened due to a reduction of suitable wetland habitat and food plants, including tansy tanacetum. A small population can be found along the river Ouse in York.
The kit is super easy to follow. Lots of padding work to start with, just like most goldwork projects, and then you can have a bit of fun adding colour and sparkle.
In the first picture you can also see one of the gorgeous sewing organisers I was sent on my birthday! I can really recommend this kit to anyone wanting to dabble in metal work – it was so quick and easy to do.
Thank you for popping in. Happy stitching!
Wow! Your work is so intricate and beautiful.
Very kind of you to say so.

That is really beautiful!
Thank you Kathy
