I stitched this up for SonjaBoo in the Sunshine Swap.
I think we all need a cheerful summer bee just about now with this horrid winter!



I had to do it a bit off center as the fabric was a bit small to do anything else with.
The fabric also had a honeycomb vibe for me, so I felt I couldn't *not* use it.  Wink
I used the waste canvas for the words.



Thanks for checking out my little bee.
Here's to a quick arriving spring!

Too cute! What a great interpretation of everything in this. The background is not quite hexxies but totally screams honeycomb nonetheless. Woah! *head asplode because of awesomeness*Too much awesome for one hoop almost.

It is a lovely and very spring-like hoopla! The background does say honeycomb! Great found.

Your stitching is so neat. It makes an awesome hoop, blair! Great work!! (as always!!)

Great combination of cross stitch and embroidery.  Love your little hoop!

I hope spring comes this year.  I'm starting to doubt it. Smiley  This has renewed my faith a bit.
