Bee Material

Detail of the fabric - two sided use.

A couple of people have commented on the bee material that was used in the corner of the November lady. It was a sample piece from the furniture factory in San Francisco a number of years ago. It has been used in a couple of items but this is one of the major pieces that I made using the material.
This bug bag that I made with the bee material several years ago, is called Bert and is the third of the bags that I made using this pattern. The first was called “Matilda” – she is yellow and green, while the second was Esmerelda – all green in colour.

BJP stitching is continuing with December piece started and also the February piece semi beaded. Today was going to be a day with more stitching but unfortunately my mum phoned at 9.30 am to say that we were going to preserve peaches at my sisters. It was a fun time with the three of us working together – an annual event and a reminder of when we were young and my mother preserved lots of fruit for the year ahead. Her 16 year old son kept coming and sampling the wares and saying that bottle is enough for breakfast. We ended up with about 30 jars of peach slices all different sizes so that is great.
