Embroider as follows…

For the Bee…

In black, back stitch the outline of the bee’s body, and then satin stitch the nose, middle stripe and tail of the bee.

In yellow, satin stitch the 2 remaining stripes on the body.

Couch the Bee wings, Straight stitch the antennae.

The flight line of the bee is a simple running stitch.

Once your bee is buzzing you can start with the ferns – the repetative nature of these is really relaxing to stitch.

I used 3 different shades of green and varied them around the design. Each line of fern was stitched from the top to the bottom in continuous fly stitch. I secured off the thread each time to avoid seeing thread lines from the back. (but that’s just me!)

The template gives you the straight lines so you can just makes the fly stitches in a more organic way which gives the pattern a much nicer feel.

Once you have finished you can keep it in the hoop you stitched it in or find a fancy one to jazz it up a bit.

Another idea is to mount it in a card for someone on Valentines Day! That would be very special indeed. Do you know someone who deserves something that special!

If you stitch this buzzing bee, snap a photo as I’d love to see your creations! You can send me photos at nicola@stitchdoodles.com and I will include them here with your permission. I lovelovelove to see your photos!
