Sarah, at Homemade Gorgeous! Congratulations Sarah and if you'd like to email me your address I'll send you the lucky dip crafty bag asap.
Thank you so much to everyone who entered the giveaway - it was fun to meet so many crafty bloggers, and I'll do another giveaway soon.
Since I became involved in the blogging community a year ago I realised something was missing from my crafty life..I had knitting, sewing, quilting, patchwork, cross stitch, embroidery, drawing, painting, scrapbooking, papercrafts and cardmaking ....but no crochet!! and seeing the pleasure and enjoyment so many people derive from crochet I just had to have a try. So I ordered the Happy Hooker to read and inform me...and I asked a friend who I knew could crochet to help me start off....

Today's post is a small celebration of beehive images....I just love them...they make me think of old kitchen gardens, of cottage gardens filled with flowers and fruit...I think both the wooden hives and the wicker bee skeps are beautiful images to include in embroidery....like my little beehive here which was a cross stitch design I produced years ago and found in a box recently...I thought I'd turn it into a cushion surrounded by a flower garden patchwork....
silverpebble a little while ago and loved it so much I commissioned one as an early birthday present... Many of you will already know Emma and her lovely work - she is a jeweller and a participating member of the Cambridge Open Studios...her website is here and her etsy shop is here....do go and have a look at Emma's beautiful designs.
