SAMPLER OR BOX TOP

Elegance! In this design, a lifelike Bumblebee buzzes around a delicate spray of wild roses and forget-me-not blossoms on an elegant whitework square. I’m sure you’ll soon see how easy it is to learn how to make! She is very fuzzy just like a real bumblebee, and turkey stitched with black and gold wool, with wings so real that she looks as if she will fly away! This busy little creature flies near a spray of soft pink silk ribbon roses and is shown to best advantage on a framework of pulled white on white stitching. The design includes some Hardanger Blanket Stitched Flowers, highlighted with shimmering gold beads… and of course some drawn thread and other pulled thread stitches. This gorgeous sampler really takes your breath away! It is most suitable for stitchers who are familiar with charts and diagrams of counted thread work on fine linen, but if you don't know all you think you might need, just register online for our Bumblebee Lace Cyberclass! You will learn to build the Turkey Knot Bumblebee step by step and you can see for yourself how easy it is to make and attach thethree dimensional wings.  You can learn how to do the difficult stitches easily and have fun doing it! When you’re finished, just frame it with soft green matting to hang on your wall or tuck it into a 5” white box top to really see the three dimensional stitching. Enjoy stitching this design! Feel free to sign up for the Cyberclasses if you’d like extra help, and come and join us to learn to make this elegant and timeless keepsake for yourself! Enjoy stitching this gorgeous whitework sampler with it’s summery Bumblebee guest for yourself or as a gift and have fun! - Thea
