I do so enjoy a good bee motif and I'm sure there are a lot of good puns to go along with it, but I fear that I have no time for such frivolities right now. I finished up this pincushion for my grandma's birthday (she's 77 years old!) and must hastily post about it before heading off to jury duty. Blech! I tried to be as inconspicuous as possible during the selection process, but to no avail. Ah, well. Civic duty, I guess.
I stumbled across the book "Pretty Little Pincushions" at the library quite awhile ago and have been waiting for an excuse to try my hand at one of the many, many cute ideas in there. I considered letting Susannah choose which pincushion to create (the book is full of pictures and simple instructions) but I really wanted to do the bee hive. Like I said earlier, I have a thing for bees. My first tattoo was a bumble bee.
We found the perfect little bee buttons at the craft store and used a bit of glue to turn them into pins for the bee hive. They're my favorite part! I think that's all the time I have today, folks. If you don't hear from me for awhile it's because the trial is taking forever and I'm tucked away in some claustrophobic jury room or a windowless court room with 11 of my peers.
