In my blog I plan to chat about nature, crafts, baking, gardening, beekeeping, family, and whatever else seems appropriate at the time. Sit back, relax, and enjoy!

A post of it's own...almost!

 Remember when I said what was in that other bag deserves a post of it's own.  LOOK at this wall hanging that a friend made for me!
 The details....little embroidered paths that the bees took.
 All of the little bits of material are bees, flowers, honey comb....
 All of the bee buttons are different!  She had to collect everywhere she went.
 Little tiny squares sewn together.
 A cute pink bee.
 The bees coming out of the hive...look at the buttons.
 I think this is the most stunning wall hanging ever.  She made it for ME!  She put it in our local fair and got a Reserve Grand Champion (I think that's what they call it).  She also got a Grand Champion on another quilt.  I was meeting her at the yarn store and she was showing us her fair entries and in a very nonchalant way I said, "Oh I need that wall hanging!"  and she said to the other girls,  "I made it for Cindy."  I was speechless.  I don't think they've ever seen me speechless before!  Bee-You-Tea-Full is what I say!  And THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!
 

Gotta get busy...I'm painting these this morning, and extracting honey this afternoon.
These 'things' are caps and bases for our columns.  $47.00 bills a pair!  I had the big one!
And this is the picture that was supposed to go through on my Ipad on that last post.  I did go back to sleep, btw!
