Things Are Buzzing

Firstly to in answer to Lisa's question, if you email me on stitchingranny@hotmail.com I will try and explaine to you how I work my rota.
Barnabee is growing and he even has a hive to go to now. I am really pleased with how this has progressed so far. I decided I would add the beads as I went as I have a frame big enough to take the whole piece without me having to move it and trap the beads as I work. As those of you who follow my blog will know I like to personalise my work in some way but I couldn't work out how I was going to do this with Barnabee as I didnt want to alter colours or change the design in any way, I think however I now have the answer. In a couple of places there are tiny butterflies and I have some lovely little swarvoski butterfly beads so when I get to the bit where I should stitch one I am going to try putting one of the beads there. I dont know if this will work or not but I like the idea so will certainly give it a try.

Unfortunately tomorrow is UFO day and Wednesday is Serendipity so I won't be able to do anymore on this for a couple of days but its certainly not going away yet. Ideally I would like to complete part one before I move on but will just have to wait and see how things pan out. This chart was gifted to Julie from Sally and Julie then gifted it on to me. When it is complete it will be on the move again as I will be gifting it to Jane. I hope when Jane has stitched it she will keep it moving too and gift it on to someone else as I know both Sally and Julie loved stitching it and up to now I can see why.

You´ve made a great start on Barnabee Helen. This is certainly a pattern that I´d like to stitch one day. I love it - I followed Julie when she stitched her and loved seeing it come to life and I will most certainly follow you while you stitch yours. I´m curious about your roation so I am wondering if I can send you an e-mail about it.

All the best,
Edda
