i just had the pleasure of swapping with the fabulous LimeRiot in the second round of the cushion cover swap.  i was so excited when i read in her questionnaire that she liked chevron patterns and bright colors, as i had this crazy fabric remnant in my stash from ages ago!



the bee and honeycomb were hand embroidered.  had a bit of a failed attempt at applique which allowed me to play with the decorative stitches on my newly acquired sewing machine to stitch the piece on.

close up of the bee, as i was very happy with how it came out!



c/c welcome and thanks for looking!  Smiley

Personally have a soft spot for Bees (it's called my butt) so this is very appealing to me. Lime is a lucky lady!

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