It's Been Bugging Me!

It's kind of been bugging me that since getting my license I haven't added any Sublime Stitching stuff to my etsy.  So I took a break from some of my bigger projects and swap pieces, which can get a bit overwhelming, to make some things for the shop. 

Like this little guy!

This comes from the "Garden Variety" pattern.  I stitched it with DMC Cotton, Metallic, and Rayon floss.  The piece is mounted in a 3in x 4in oval hoop and is ready to hang.  Even the back looks cute, with a coordinating felt covering the stitches.  It'll be in my shop later today!  

My guy said I should have arranged it vertically in the hoop.  What do you think, would it have looked better?  Maybe I'll try another one that way.

I'm also working on some bees for the shop, from the same pattern.  I'm just loving how they're turning out, can't wait to show you.  Be back soon, guys.  Have a craftastic day!

I like it framed this way. It looks like it's going to crawl right out of the frame!

Thanks, Bex! That's exactly what I was going for :). I have lots of florals so I'm going to give this one a second chance.

This is awesome! I agree that it looks like it is trying to make an escape :-)

Thanks, Sam! That pain in the butt Rayon floss really makes it shine :) Can you tell I'm stuck on beading, too?!
