Buzz, Buzz

Do you ever feel like the weekends go by so quickly that you never have enough time to get everything you want done? This is how I'm feeling after the end of another weekend is nearing. If only they made them three days instead of two. One can dream I guess....

So Friday rolled around and I had planned to stitch some more on Queen Bee. I didn't even lift up my needle. After getting home from work and having some tea (dinner), I sat down to watch a bit of TV and started to close my eyes a little. Then a little became a lot, and I ended up nodding off for about an hour! Upon waking up, there was a movie starting called Sleepless In Seattle which I love, so I ended up watching that. So there was not a stitch to be seen on Friday night.

Saturday rolls around and I get some housework done. Meanwhile the weather just starts to get worse and worse, with rain setting in for most of the day. Yippee! Stitching time!! So down I sit and get out that little bee project and away I go. I managed to get the bee done and made a start on the top of the design by completing one of the flowers.

Queen Bee - 29 August 2009

I wonder what all those beads are doing there?


Maybe this is a hint of what's to come...


I'm having so much fun with this design. Please look out for finished photos tomorrow.

I love this project and yours is so beautiful! I keep watching for it at my LNS but she has never reordered it, so I guess I will order it for me. I love yours!!

The same thing happened to me last night - scroll rod on my lap contemplating taking up needle and thread - then I closed my eyes. That was it! Love your progress on Queen Bee.

I know, sometimes your body just need the rest! Ms Bee is looking lovely thought she thinks "quit goofing around with my beads! ;-) Very funny.

Wish I could say I went to sleep with my stitching, but it didn't even get picked up yesterday or last night! But I had a good visit with a very old friend, and that is important too!

Love your QB progress!!

This Queen Bee is looking lovely!
As usual, your stitching looks perfect. I can relate to the wish for longer weekends!
