Summer

I heard from Becky last week that she had received the gift I stitched for her as a thank you for the wonderful trimmings she sent me earlier this year.

Knowing how much Becky likes bees as soon as I saw this design
by Gazette 94 I knew I had to stitch it for her.

I adapted it slightly and turned it into a pin cushion and used
some of the details from the pattern for the edges of it.





Even though Becky isn't blogging right now she was kind enough to email me to say she had received it and loved it. As with many of the people I 'know' through blogging I often think about her and hope she is OK, so it was really nice to hear from her.
