Bees and Blossom

Pinterest has some beautiful embroidery inspirations.  I've pinned so many ideas, I'm sure if I sat and embroidered forever, I still wouldn't be able to work my way through all the lovely designs.

There were two though that I saw recently that particularly caught my eye.

This one from flossbox

...and this one from emblibrary.com.

I already have an embroidered bee and flowers picture that I made way back in 1998...

...but I felt that the time was ripe for another one to be made.

So, based on the lovely inspiration from Pinterest, I drew out a design, selected the colours and off I went...

And here's the finished article.

There's something about bees and flowers that lifts the spirits, don't you think?


  1. I have a bit of a thing about bees too. I just think they look so cute on a design. Your embroidery is lovely. I like the photo with all your threads and sketches too.

  2. Love it. Your talent spans so many different crafts ... knitting, crochet, embroidery just to name a few. Thanks for sharing.

  3. It's beautiful!! You picked a great color for the bee hive!!

  4. Wow, it's just beautiful, Janet! I love the blue flowers especially. Well done.
