Bees and a Honey Pot .....

Well .....  a birthday for my Sweet B, really is no birthday at all
without at least one handmade gift
stitched with love 
and made especially


I bought her a gorgeous sewing box from Liberty of London
this print was perfect for her
she dreams about meadows full of wild flowers
(she REALLY does ..... for her bees!)
Luckily they had matching Tana lawn
so I bought some of that too
well ..... that pretty sewing box was crying out for accessories, no?

Firstly I made a honey pot for my honey

You may remember when I made this cute jam jar pinchion
from Amy's beautiful new book Sweetly Stitched Handmades
I couldn't get the idea of honey pot out of my head
it would be just perfect
..... and then I found the cutest bumble pins on Esty!
so then there was no going back.
Ooooh love love love them.

that little Bumble Bee is too cute for words

obviously she would need a needle case too

Those little teeny tiny bees were tricky
but I learnt a new stitch
Bullion stitch
I definitely need more practice

Thanks for popping by and for your wonderfully kind comments

Wishing you all a sunny and happy weekend

BIG love

  1. Just one word.....gorgeous ! 🐝

  2. Oh wow. Just too gorgeous for words. What a beautiful and talented mum Sweet B has, that's all I can say! Xxxxxxx

  3. Oh Jooles you have nearly outdone yourself! What a perfectly beautiful gift for Sweet B! Everything is so lovely - and the bullion bees are *wonderful*, clever you! See you soon! Cxxx

  4. This is the sweetest gift. I love that you give your daughter handmade gifts, mine has always done that for me. I try to do the same for my four but it doesn´t always pan out like I would like. All of these items are so well made and just gorgeous. I like how B is into bees. My oldest girl is 11 yrs old and she has such a fear of them. We are working on trying to fix that problem.

    Truly beautiful work. Great job and congrats on your daughters Birthday!
