Summer Bees (Summertime Series)

These cheery, humming bees buzz around a delightful summer garden, full of blooms and bugs.

The design incorporates traditional embroidered flower designs from our mothers and grandmothers fancy work, and can easily be added to with other favoured flowers.
I have worked this embroidery four times to date, with varying hues. One is very bright and fluorescent, one pastel and the others in rich, soft tones. I can’t decide which is best, but have given colours for the piece photographed, which matches the other embroideries in the summertime series.

Pattern available at Etsy as a PDF file.
