June Smalls are Buzzing!

Where has this month gone, we’re a third of the way through already! So, here’s my cross-stitch smalls for the month…

The Joyful World SAL one for June has a very cute bear with a bee hive. That gave me a bit of a theme, so anything with bees came out, then butterflies to bunce it up a bit.

I’ve stitched the bumble bee one a couple of times now, I made the first one for my mum as she used to keep bees, I liked it so much I stitched myself one as well…

The square bee pincushion is from Le Jardin Prive, I stitched it back in 2015!

The lavender pot with bees buzzing round is by Lesley Tear, she kindly has it as a freebie on her website.

The two butterflies with lavender are both Faby Reilly designs, Again I made them for my mum for Mothers Day one year, I think the fob went round a padded coat-hanger.

The forget-me-nots are just about still in flower, so I included a little cross-stitch I stitched years ago, like when I was in my 20’s, together with a tiny box which is a Nutmeg Designs kit, I think it’s officially periwinkle, but it’ll pretend to be forget-me-nots!

The final one popped in of a bee is again one I made years ago for my mum, it was actually some voile I saw in a shop up I think in Pickering(we’re talking probably 20 years ago!!) I fussy-cut them and made a cushion, but I also made this little hanging one to go on a coathanger.

So I’ve ended up with quite a collection of bees! In case you’re wondering, our bumble bee nest under the eaves appears to be quieting off a bit, so hopefully my belief that the nest will be gone before the workmen arrive will come to fruition!

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!

    Hello Margaret, your June smalls are gorgeous. I wish I had kept some of mine. I stitched so many about 20 years ago but gave them all away to family and friends. Now I’m stitching for myself at last. Regards Mandy xx
