Thank you so much for all of the lovely comments on my Biscornu! I had so many more commenters than usual! Thank you, thank you!

I started and finished this little cutie this week. It’s by Sam Sarah and it’s called B is for Bee. It’s pretty untypical of my taste, but I just fell in love with the little bees! I stitched it using the recommended fabric and Weeks fibers, however I did switch the white wings to “Whitewash” because it’s what I had on hand. I don’t think that I’m going to add the letter B button in the middle as the chart calls for, but I haven’t yet decided on if I’ll add the rose buttons… If anyone out there is interested in the chart, I have placed it up on my Sale/Trade blog.
Next up is my new start…(edited to add the name of this chart!!! It’s Sea to Shining Sea by LHN) I started this today while watching Persuasion with two girlfriends. Our husbands and kids were outside playing basketball and we were inside having much needed girl time! I am stitching this over 1 on 32 ct. Vintage Sea Storm linen.
The scissors that you see in this picture are 4 inch Ginghers…so you get an idea for how tee-nincey this thing is (the gap in the brown stitches is the 1/2 way point)! I got the idea for the blue linen from Nicole and I got the over 1 idea from the Shepherd’s Bush blog…so I guess it’s an unoriginal collaboration of ideas for me!!! Either way, it’s just too cute in person (click on pic to see it a bit larger).

That’s about it for me. It’s been a week in between posts, which I don’t like, but that’s life these days! I can’t complain, though. My boys have both been well for a week straight now (fingers crossed!).

Have a great week, and Happy Stitching!
