Okay I promise I’m not going to show you every single motif of this little stitch as I finish it. I posted the bee earlier today (and I think I might need a pillow just full of those little bees flying every which way) but the colors I had picked for this next motif played together so nicely. Until I started writing this post I hadn’t looked at the name colors – I just picked colors similar yet a bit more vibrant than those called for in the chart and and stuck them on a ring. I just realized that part of the reason I love these colors together is I picked most of my favorite Weeks colors and the one Gental Art color I picked, the green, is one of my favorite greens. The blue is Teal Frost which you know I have used in a lot of designs if you’ve been reading my blog for a while, the lighter/darker pink family colors are Sanguine and Red Pear, the yellow is Curry, the brownish black is Onyx and the green is Chives.
Isn’t this little motif pretty? I may need to order me some more floss tags using this photo.

I started this on October 18, 2021; finished April 2, 2022. The floss is Victorian Motto in Red Riding Hood and the fabric is Fiber on a Whim 20 ct in Oatmeal. This is my 11th finish for 2022.
So about 2 AM when I was totally wide awake, decided to start on something else. There was a little project that had been calling to me to start it but I had wanted to get a few WIPS done before starting anything new. Since I recently finished off three – Winter Rose Manor, Strawberry Hill and Quaker Crow – I decided to pull out the chart for Busy Bee Sampler.
There’s only five colors in it and I decided to pull my own colors rather than using the called for. I stayed with the same general color family but darkened the colors a bit. The fabric I’m using is 20 ct. Biscotti by Colour & Cotton. (of course now that typed the word Biscotti, I’m very hungry for some. I’ve made homemade Biscotti and it was quite good; I may need to make sure to put the ingredients on my next grocery list.)
Here’s my start on it last night. I started near the middle with the bee – he’s so cute.
On 20 count, I think this may fit in a standard 5×7″ frame.
