assiduous Apis mellifera

making a mess...
trim ... trim ... trim
because this...
 looks like i finished the cross-stitching in 1998 ... and then it was lost in the Great Pile of Stuff for eighteen years
was finally made into a pillow...
and the pillow sorta kinda goes with these... 
too bad there are no cookies in that cookie jar
how 'bout a closer look at that little picture...
Sweet Melissa

the red table complained a lot ow!!! you're scratching me!!! when i placed the cup on it, so those pinwheels and a bunch more and that bee and a bunch more are gonna grow up to be a table runner someday...

Honey is sweet, but the bee has a sting.

  1. You've been a buzy bee! Love the sweet grouping. My BIL and SIL are giving bee keeping a try this summer. I'm wishing them success (with hopes of OH honey at Christmas... does this sound greedy?).

  2. All together my little baby bumble bee (buzz around, buzz around, keep a'buzzin' round......)

  3. Well, my first winner has not contacted me, so I drew another name and it was yours! Congratulations, you have won July's Give-Away Apron on my blog. Please email me your address and I will send it to you ASAP.

  4. I couldn't decide whether I should say "SAH-WEET!!!" Or "BEES!!!" , so you get both. Love me some BEES!!!


  5. How'd I miss this? That's gonna bee a nice table runner. Love the pillow. Remember Jonathon Livingston Seagull....Erica Wilson? Not sure if it was her design but I started an embroidered pillow top with a JLS theme way back, early seventies, when I was a child bride. Most of it is done but the procrastination gene is strong in me and I never finished it. Soon, I tell myself. The sands are running faster and faster through the timer.....

  6. Love the pillow! Can't wait to see your runner!!
