Hi all!
Here is one part of a box of yellow goodies I sent to my lovely partner craftADDchick in the Box of Sunshine Swap. She had some sunflowers and bees in her pinterest, and I had some pom-pom trim that I really wanted to use...





This is a 6" hoop. I used fusible interfacing to initially hold the flower petals and center onto the blue fabric. The petals were sewn down with a stem stitch, the center with a ring of french knots, and the bee was done with a combination of back-stitch, satin stitch and something that I don't know the name of, but looks a lot like fur when you trim the loops.

Thanks for looking! I hope it brightened your day!

To all past swap partners....If something I made you fell apart in some way, it would be helpful to me if you PMed me and told me about it.  Sometimes, I try new things, and if they fail, it helps me to know
