A Quick Finish ~ Buzz Buzz Bee

Instant satisfaction with this one! Only a day's stitching involved and already a finish is created. I stitched this small kit on Saturday and here's the end result.


For me to stitch this in a day, it has to be small. The design size measures 1" x 3 1/2" approx. which makes it very tiny. Done in silk threads with a gorgeous bee charm to add.


As mentioned in my last post, this little kit is a Shepherd's Bush exclusive and can be purchased via them direct only. The kit comes with the surrounding mat and all that it needs is the frame.

DESIGNER ~ Shepherd's Bush
PATTERN ~ Buzz Buzz Bee (shop exclusive kit)
FABRIC ~ Shepherd's Tan 32ct hand-dyed linen
THREADS ~ Au Ver A Soie & Silk Moire (1 over 2)
EMBELLISHMENT ~ Bee charm
STARTED/FINISHED ~ 22 May 2010

I knew I wasn't going to get through a bigger design very quickly and I wanted something that would be quick to do, so I knew I could count on a SB piece to suit. Unlike me, I haven't done any of their designs this year so I needed to rectify that. Now I'm happy, and I have another finish under my belt (albeit a small one) and I can do a little happy dance!


So small was this one that I could even use my mini hoop to stitch it up. So cute!


I hope you've had fun drooling over my pictures, and as always, thanks so much for dropping by. Until my next little adventure... happy stitching!

So cute Jane! What a great little finish. I have not seen this kit at SB. I'll have to keep my eyes open. I think it would be fun to have a wall with bee hive stitching on it.
Thanks for the sweet comments about market. I owe you an e-mail and will try and catch up this weekend. My last week of school, and a funeral on Friday are going to keep me busy this week.
Until then, hope all is well! Many hugs dear friend.
