Smalls for June

This year I’ve been trying to have a seasonal display of cross-stitch smalls on display, so on the 1st of the month we have a change-over.

I was thinking of a flowery theme this month, but when I pulled out the Snowflower Diary small for June it had a bear and a hive of honey, so I changed my mind and went for bees instead!

A few years ago (2015) I stitched a beautiful bee pincushion by Natalie from Le Jardin Privee, I still love it, the bees are just gorgeous!


A new bee small is the one I finished just a week or so back of a lavender pot and some bees buzzing round it. This was a free design by Lesley Teare.

Lavender & Bees

The little box on the back hasn’t got any bees on it but it is a summer themed box, it’s a design by Nutmeg Designs, they do a lot of 3D cross-stitch.

Right at the front is a lavender bag I made for my mum last year as a birthday present, it went on a padded coat hanger. It hasn’t got any bees on it but it does have a pretty butterfly! This one is a Faby Reilly design, I stitched the card to go with it too and a little scissor fob.

I’m hoping to add another bee small to the display soon as I’ve almost finished another bumble bee cross-stitch, I loved the one I made for my mum this year so much I’m making my self one!

About craftycreeky

I live in a busy market town in Yorkshire with my husband, kids, dogs and chickens. I love trying new crafts, rediscovering old ones, gardening, walking...anything creative really I started this blog after my New Year resolution worked so well. My resolution (the first one I've ever kept!) was to post a photograph of my garden on Facebook every day. My hope was that I would then see what was good in the garden and not just weeds and work, which was my tendency. The unexpected side-effect was that I have enjoyed many more hours in the garden. I am hoping that 'The Crafty Creek' will have the same effect. Happy creating!
