Sunflowers and Bees

The boys are home educated and a many projects we have done have had very simple beginnings.

When the boys were quite small, we had a set of cards that had activities, games and information designed for pre-school children. One of those cards was about bees which started us on an exciting journey.

As they loved bees, we contacted a local bee keeper who allowed us to go and visit his honey bees. They were dressed in the full protective suits and were able to see into the hives. It was a fantastic day and something the boys have never forgotten.

My niece designed and stitched her own cross stitch bee and when I saw this cross stitch design by Jane Greenoff,I decided to stitch it, adding some bee charms.

All from a simple card!
