12 Bees

I didn't have much time to stitch on Sunday what with one thing or the other.
I did manage to kit up Cottage Garden Sampling's "June's Honeysuckle".

And hey, I stitched twelve bees too!

May in November

Sunday was such a pretty day - more like a day in May than November.
So perhaps it's fitting then that I worked on "May's Lily".  I have two more leaves to stitch and the twelve blossoms, and I'll be done.  I think that I'll probably get this finished sometime this week, and save my next "Sunday Series Stitch" to kit up and begin "June's Honeysuckle".

May's Lily - Stitching Has Begun!

A gray and showery weekend was made for cross stitching.

I made good progress on Cottage Garden Samplings, "May's Lily".
First off I completed all the GAST "Chive" elements of the border.

I then had enough time to stitch all the border motifs.
Now on to the sentiment and the lilies of the valley.
