After much contemplation, I decided flowers and bees as two objects which are dependant on yet opposite of each other.  The flower is shown in growing stages from a sprout to a full flower.  The final flower is incomplete, however, because it depends on a bee to pollenate it.  The bee, likewise, is incomplete without a flower so it can make honey.

This is both pillows together on my bed.




A close up of the flower detail.

Before I started stitching I sketched everything in my notebook.  I looked up pictures of bees and tulips online for reference.  Also, because I'm kind of, well, crazy, I made my own pillowcases.  I found premade ones for $13 and I found a twin sheet for $5.  Easy choice, and I made sham type pillowcases.


As usual, entering right before deadline...

Thanks for all the nice comments!  I normally embroider abstract images rather than representational ones, so that was another part of the challenge for me.  I really enjoyed branching out for this.

I also like the idea of leaving it unfinished. By the way, VERY nice computer! I love Macs!
