Bee happy .... remember this?

Do you remember when I put my CK wallpaper scraps from the kitchen into frames in the living room?


Well, yesterday I changed it around.

I finally painted the large frame and tried to paint the small ones but the glass had been glued in which made it difficult.  So instead these went into storage in the garage for now and I moved some other frames around to make this display.


I did some free hand embroidery on the sewing machine yesterday to make the flower and bee picture for the large frame.


Then for these frames which were empty and did more free hand embroidery with sayings.



I used a couple of my Tilda embroidery flowers but only sellotaped them down so I can used them again.



These two butterfly pictures came from a shop in Woolacombe, North Devon last year, they were much cheaper than the Laura Ashley ones :)

Bee happy x
Have a delicious day!

  12. hello there,
    I just wanted to say a big thankyou for following my blog. I came over to "see who you are" and have loved reading thru the past posts.

    I'm sorry you're visited so regularly with pain and illness which is certainly no fun at all, and glad that you can do the best thing possible in trying to look for the good things however hard they sometimes try to conceal their liitle selves!

    As someone said to me the other day (but I don't feel QUITE like I know you well enough to say it to you) "keep your chins up"!
