How's the Bee Man?

Hello Friends! I fell off the face of the earth again ;) It's that time of year....
Last time I blogged, I said I hoped to have "numb butt syndrome" last weekend, by working on the Bee Man. Well I didn't work on the Bee Man at all in fact, I didn't stitch a lick all weekend, I did get to go on my date with my hubby though and that was very nice. I sort of just goofed off all weekend, one of those weekends where I really can't tell you what I did...but I did it and then it was Monday.

So....this is where I left Bee Man the last time I stitched on it:

And.....here it is today after stitching on it:

Design: In The Bee Man's Garden by The Goode Huswife

I'm stitching....... this one on 40 ct. purely primitive by Silkweavers and the color is much more true to life in picture #2. It's a nice fabric that I bought on a whim and sure am glad I did. I think that I will stitch all of the Colonial Garden Series on 40 ct. purely primitive.

So....that does it for me for today. Maybe I'll get in another post before the weekend, who knows?! So until next time.....love and best wishes, as you count your blessings and your stitches, from our house to yours! XXxxxx

I have learned that to have a good friend is the purest of all God's gifts, for it is a love that has no exchange of payment.

  3. Even though you didn't get any stitching done on the weekend, I think you've still made some great progress on Bee Man.

    You're making short work of Bee Man.. I love the pattern and would love to stitch it but I don't own the pattern.

  9. Bee Man is gorgeous, I have a love of bee designs. (Don't know why, because I am scared of bees.) I once stitched on some Silkweaver fabric and I found it so beautiful to work on.

  10. Great progress ... I love the color of the fabric ... so glad that the second picture shows it much truer to live. Isn't amazing what having the right lighting can do to the look of the fabric when you take a picture of it?

  16. The Bee Man is looking fabulous! I wasn't aware of that design (and I have a LARGE collection of beehive/bee patterns) so thank you for enabling - I've added it to my wishlist :o)

  18. Hi Vonna, Bee Man is looking lovely and the fabric is just right although the thought of 40ct scares me silly, I've just started on 32ct! I too have had many a weekend where you do 'stuff' but have nothing to show. Glad you got to go on your date. Have a great week x

  20. As I just said out loud when I saw the latest Bee Man WIP pic, "Oooh, fabulouso!". It's beautiful! YGG. I ordered some Purely Primitive to get going on mine & just got a notice that it shipped. I asked for splotchiness so it'll be interesting to see what it looks like when it arrives. I had a great piece for Sarah Tobias that I used, loved it so much & ordered more, and the second piece didn't have any mottling.

    Glad to hear that you had a good weekend. As much as I love having a numb backside, it's also nice to look out past my linen and notice that the world is going by and jump in the game & go with the flow. It makes the times when you do get to stitch that much more pleasurable!

  28. Unfortunately, I have entire weeks like your weekend. Can't tell you what I did, can't show you either, but I must have done something cause I wasn't resting and I wasn't stitching!
    Good progress on Bee Man.
    Happy Stitching!

  31. Here's wishing you another weekend where Monday you wonder what you did :) Seems like those are pretty nice weekends.

  32. I haven't gotten much done this weekend either. I feel like I've been so busy, but I don't really know what I've gotten done. hahaha!
    The bee man looks great! I wouldn't have know you didn't work on it this weekend if you didn't post!
    The bee man reminds me of when my house was infested by bees about a year ago. There were so many of them, they are all gone now.
