A Bee-cushion......(217)

The grandkids spent the day with us yesterday so pizza, movies chocolate chip pancakes and a sleepover were involved stitching. I always miss it when I don't get to put needle to fabric and make a few x's!!! Tomorrow we're going to get my parents from Baltimore and bring them back for a 5 day visit, so needling will definitely be on the back burner. But other exciting things will beckon I'm sure!!!

My Stroll piece today is not my proudest achievement but a learning experience! It was my first drum and to this day I'm not sure what I did to have it come out so short and squat and ill fitting. The top and bottom are obviously too small for the band but I used the template provided.....oh well....sometimes you just have to "let it go" and move on. It is Pin Skep  by Kathy Schmitz, stitched in 2013.

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



  1. Oh the side motifs are especially cute on this!

  2. I like your bee drum, Stasi! It is a sweet piece. It sounded like you had a good time with the grandkids. Yum, chocolate chip pancakes!

  3. Your braver than me, I would never attempt a drum keep! It came out pretty darn good for a first attempt, have you tried to make others?

    Enjoy the visit with your parents!!
