Let's Bee Friends

Well, I've finally finished "Let's Bee Friends".  I stitched him for the March SAL on the Yahoo Margaret Sherry Cross Stitch Group (MSCSG).  I first started him in June 2010 as he was a free cover kit in Cross Stitcher Magazine 226.  I had a few problems with the kit as I like to do everything in 2 threads and not 1.  So I had quite a bit of unpicking until I got it right.  The flowers are in 2 threads and done in Anchor thread.  The cover kits threads were not Anchor, so I used what I had in my own stash.  Thanks to the group SAL, he is now finished and not a UFO anymore.

Some time ago I stitched an Archie Bear card for my friends Birthday.  I've just realised that I have not shared it with you, so here he is now.

Happy Stitching Everyone
