She said it will be done within a week! While I was stitching, my brain kept telling me a bee needed to be on the lower left flower, so I cooperated. The bee didn’t want to be there. I was surprised, since nectar is found in flowers, but who am I to argue with a bee? Into the fluffy leaves she went. I’m quite pleased to have her make her home in my Strawberry Garden.
Close-up of the bee. The picture quality is poor; I snapped them at night. It’s been cloudy here for many days.
Strawberry Garden by Blackbird Designs, Loose Feathers #18
Stitched on 32-ct. Magnolia linen by Lakeside Linens using recommended fibers, except for letters “T” and “M.” I used GAST Grecian Gold instead of Crescent Colors Fool’s Gold. The chart has two “I’s.” I stitched the second as an “L” to make a complete alphabet. I changed the bottom border to make it symmetrical. I also added a bee charm. Specialty stitches used: eyelet, smyrna cross, buttonhole, lazy daisy.
