Bees Galore......(176)

Yesterday's Honey Bee Festival was a lot of fun! I wasn't sure what to expect but we were very pleasantly surprised. They had a number of working hives, info on pollinating plants, a honey extraction demo and lots of cute bee crafts! Our grand kiddies made pipe cleaner bees (I am the proud recipient of one), could have their face painted and earned a free honey straw for getting a checklist stamped. I even got to chew some fresh honeycomb and "pet" a drone bee (drones don't have stingers) !!!

Everyone was getting into "bees"

 On to my Stroll piece. This is a piece called The Sampling, by Bent Creek stitched, in 1999. It was originally a LE kit that came in a hand painted papier mache "house".... I know I have the box somewhere but can't put my fingers on it. I love small pieces in wide frames--- do you?

 I stitched week 10 of the Blue Band SAL last evening and am up to date.

Hoping for a relaxing Sunday for us and for you. Thanks for stopping by and your "twisted threads" of friendship!
