It's been a while.....

June was a strange month..a broken computer,an uncooperative camera and finally a lovely family wedding (my sister's) So hopefully that list explains my blog absence and lack of visits to my favourite virtual haunts. My sister's wedding was joyful and beautiful, I have a new laptop but the camera is still a bit temperamental (though she was in a good mood this morning so I took some snaps of the bees in my lavender)

I've always found bees fascinating.They really are very special creatures...having a starring role in pollination,making honey(which I'm very partial to in my morning porridge),making beeswax.I've never been stung so have no real fear of them and love the tales of Victorian households informing the bees when there was a death in the family.I could go on...

And I've noticed this admiration for our buzzy friends creeping into my work more and more.Like the bee embroidery I used on this vintage linen napkin which I have no use for but it looks nice so that's reason enough I guess.

The theme continues with these two latest 'Dainty Sketch' brooches now in my Folksy shop.Actually I might and try and post a 'Foraging for Treasures' post with a bee theme to get me back into the blogging swing!So I'll try find some covetable lovelies for any fellow bee lovers out there.

So I'll BEE back very soon(forgive me..I couldn't resist)

Take Care

Your sketch brooches are so very lovely, I love the print borders. A bee post sounds interesting I shall keep a lookout for it.
