A BIT MORE BARNABEE

Here is part two of Barnabee's Quest by Just Nan. Not much in the way of alterations this time. I moved the bee next to the top writing to the opposite side because I wanted the butterfly on the right this time. I did the bunny's tail in Wisper thread - after all bunnies should have fluffly tails and finally i moved the bees about a little bit on the honeycomb. There are three honeycomb bars in this project and they are all identical. Me being me thought the bees would not stay in the same place so i moved them about a bit and will move them again next time when I do the final bar. These charts are just so interesting to stitch as there is just so much detail and yet nothing takes very long to do.

I have also done some more of Le Temps and will post an update picture on that soon. The next thing in my rota is Taj and I am getting really excited about stitching this one - however - doesnt there always have to be an however lol. I have a round robin piece to stitch and I have my UFO to stitch and I have not yet done part two of the Athena Sal and with part 3 due tomorrow I think I have some things that just have to be tackled before I get to Taj. Hopefully the incentive of getting through them and being able to start Taj will keep me going as none of these projects grab me. The RR I hate before I start - its a picture of lemon slices!!! Athena I am really only doing to keep my daughter company as it is her first ever hardanger piece and well the UFO has been a ufo for a long time because I didnt fancy doing it and I feel no more enthusiasm now than I did then. Oh well guess we all have to do the weeding if we want to admire the garden.

THANKS to all you wonderful people who visit my blog and read my ramblings and also to those who are kind enough to leave comments they mean such a lot and it has been your encouragement that has given me the courage to tackle pinkeeps and such that I would never have dared try before.

Can't wait for you to start Taj, I want to get and start Egypt Garden, but think it will be a long time before I do.
