To Bee or Not to Bee Framed Art

I have had this pattern in my stash FOREVER and finally stitched it up this week. Besides the fact that I absolutely hate bees, the pattern itself is really cute, and it stitched up quite nicely.

I made a few adjustments -- mostly color -- and then framed it in a 7x7 inch black, weathered frame I found along my travels.

The stitching was done on 28 count lambswool linen and DMC fibers were used with just a few color adjustments for my own personal preference.

The back of the frame has brown backing paper and a sawtooth hanger.

Thanks for stopping by!

This is so sweet!!! I love the scene and your beautiful frame too! I am not fond of bees either, but without them, our flowers would not get pollinated...... : )
