Bee Kind......(157)

So, I got a little "bee in my bonnet" yesterday and totally stitched and finished a small piece. Now before you get too impressed, it was a tuck-a-way finish and pretty easy stitch. You all know I love bees and I had seen that a member of the Delaware Valley Historical Sampler Guild was asking for stitched bee related donations for a beekeepers conference. Someone had given me a Pine Mountain kit called Bee Humble and I thought it would be nice to "pay it forward" to a good cause. Here is the finished piece--please note the bees--they are made from black snaps with a yellow straight clever!!!

Now, for the Stroll Stitch of the day...a couple  more "vintage?" pieces I did for my Mom back in the early 80's. She always had a fondness for the Madonna and Child and here are two I stitched for her. The smaller ornament was a Leisure Arts design and the Hummel was a Gloria and Pat Design.

Thanks for stopping by and your "twisted threads" of friendship!



  1. Bee Humble is the perfect stitched bee related donation. And yes! The snap bees are clever! :D
    I really like the Gloria and Pat stitch Stasi.

  2. Bee Humble turned out super, Stasi. I like the bees; what a neat idea. Lovely duo from your stitching past!

  3. What a beautiful stitch to pay forward with Stasi. I love how this stitch turned out. And your
    Madonna and child stitches are lovely. I'm sure your Mom loved them. RJ

  4. The stitch is adorable and what a clever idea to make bees from the little snaps! Your Modonna stitches are beautiful, I enjoy seeing all your past stitching. Mary
