Su's Busy Bee Sewing Case

Susan M (Su) from the Cumbria region of Great Britain sent me these photos of her Busy Bee Sewing Case.

Su wrote, I stitched this some time ago now and I'm afraid as I always do I change colours etc, I used Kaallund Silk thread to stitch it all.

I'm quite excited as I have plans to stitch ''Maidens of the Sea' later this spring to put into the exhibition at Fobbles in July as they are having a sea theme going on this year for one of the displays.

Isn't this sweet with all of Su's wonderful "bee things"? I'm hoping to meet her in person (and also see her lovely work in person) when I teach next May for Beverly at Fobbles.

Below is a photo of the outside of Fobbles. Isn't it charming? Thanks, Beverly, for letting me post the photo here.

Su´s Busy Bee sewing case is beautiful.
I hope you are going to teach at Fobbles at the end of May, if so, I may be able to come too. I visited the shop last year and it is FABULOUS!!!

The Fobbles event is a definite for May 2011. Won't that be a lovely time of year to be in the Lake District, but then I love the UK anytime of the year.

You can contact Beverly for details as they become available.
