Bee Charmer

I didn’t realize it had been so long since I’d posted.  I was busy in a happy stitching spot, which is the best place to be. 🙂

I’ve been busy on a BAP.  I expect to post a WIP picture in a couple of days.  Meanwhile, I also stitched Bee Charmer, a biscornu kit by Indigo Rose.

The instructions say to make tassels out of all the colors of leftover floss. I didn’t want to do that. I didn’t care for it in the model picture. And besides, I had a HUGE frogging event, which left me without enough floss in the corner color (Caron Waterlilies Steel). So I used it to stitch a corner motif on the bottom. In the original kit, the bottom is an unstitched piece of linen.  *horrors!*

I originally planned to make tassels out of one of the other colors, but I would have had to go to the LNS.  I always love an excuse to go to the LNS.  I got impatient, it was Sunday, and it just so happened I had some Mill Hill beads that matched the glass beads that were supposed to be part of the tassel.  I’m really happy with it.
