5. Raised Chain 2 -rust coloured perle 8
6. Raised Chain 1 –

7.Twisted Chain for grass with dyed crochet thread.
8. Chain stitch Pink flowers ..I liked the way the chain edges improve the look of the flower.  Whipped Chain and Detached Chain for the stems and leaves.
9. Fly stitch stem,  2 strands of Cottage Garden Thread for the Shell stitch flowers with Pistil stitches.
10. Cactus?? maybe if wider…..  Chain stitch and Detached Wheat Ear stitch .  Perle and a fine crochet thread used here.   The Wheatear stitch looked neat in an alternating horizontal placement too.  I didn’t take a photo of that..
11. Beehive. I couched a piece of fabric with Heavy Chain using perle 8 thread.
12. Bees.  I was shown how to do these years ago and forgot them.

Here’s how.
Body= black DMC  One Detached Chain stitch = 2 strands .. follow on with a French Knot for the head.
1 Straight stitch =2 strands….make 2 stripes in Yellow DMC
Wings- Detached Chains.  2 =I used a single strand of gold metallic thread but cotton would do.

  1. That’s a lovely little scene in the corner with the beehive in the grass and overhanging flowers, plus bees. Thanks for the directions for the bees. I will have to try some with my flying things on the CQ pieces.

    • Thank you Susan. You are welcome to the directions and I hope you do use them- they are quick and fun.

  2. More nice experiments – again I love the wheel in the middle the best. It’s done in colours I like too, so an additional bonus!

    • I like those colours too, MA. They just ‘sort of’ fell into my hands.
