Hello! I made this during the Pushing Daisies swap for my awesome partner, Quinndustrious P. I used a dark gray & mustard color  because I thought it looked classy  Wink.  I used a pattern for the bee but free-handed the honeycombs. It was hard to let this go, might have to make a twin! (There's a bit of a reflection on the glass, it's not dirty aida, I promise!)



Happy stitching!

It's beautiful!
You did well with the colour choices too (a change from the usual yellow and black). I think it looks classy too.

It's adorable.  I love how the honeycombs sort of frame the bee.  Good job!

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

Not only is the bee itself awesome, but I totally love the little honeycomb to either side!  Really neat piece, I agree with everyone else, you have a super lucky swap partner.  Smiley

Looking to de-stash cross stitch magazines, particularly Cross Stitch Gold or New Stitches?  Please drop me a line!  I'd love to swap or buy some missing from my library!

I love this too. Bees are awesome, and this stitch has a very antique feel to it. (In a good way!)  Smiley
