This is a Glory Bee pattern designed by Nancy Boyarsky featured in the Just Cross Stitch 2008 Christmas Ornaments Magazine on page 54. I decided to add beads to give it a little sparkle, I used the colours given in the pattern using DMC threads 816, 890 and 725 and I stitched it on 32 count Belfast Linen in Light Mocha.
I liked the design so much I made two – oops no I made three – no in fact I made four!!!! There was no way that I could part with this ornament unless I had a second one nearly finished all for myself!
The others are quite different, I shall post pictures when they are all ready.
I loved the fact that it was really easy to stitch.
