Honeybee Sampling

Hello Friends!

I have two new FFOs for the week! The first is this Honeybee Sampling from Little House Needleworks that I finished into a flatfold. I used some black and tan homespun -- which, again, isn't always the best fabric to work with if you're OCD like me -- but I do like the colors and the primitive feel it gives. 

This was a great stitch, although I did notice I had to take a few breaks from it just because it's a lot of block-work in the middle with the gold and brown. And when I finished it, I decided to add some cute ribbon flowers to the corners to pull out some of that pinky red found in the pattern.


Pattern: Honeybee Sampling
Designer: Little House Needleworks

Colors Used: 
DMC: 420, 469, 729, 3021, 3721 and White

My other FFO was the May Flip-It from Lizzie Kate. As I've been working on stitching up the Cottages of the Month, I've also been stitching these monthly patterns as well.

Just like the Cottages of the Month, I've been keeping these finishes basic and uniform. I want all of them to look the same so I can just change them out each month when I display them in my tiered tray. I've been using the same dimensions for the stitched piece, the backing fabric, and I'm including matching cover-buttons on top just for a little extra pop of color. The frame is a small frame I got at a local thrifty shop and chalk-painted white.

Finished another pink-on-pink version of this pattern. Still trying to figure out how I'm going to FFO it so it'll just sit on the desk for a little bit.
