The Bee's Knees

Happy Monday friends! I am back today with a quick post...playing catch-up. I just had to share some fun, creative, and inspiring holiday gifts that I received from my dear friend Terri. Terri always does the best themed holiday packages...this year she focused on my love for bees (with a couple other special items I have to share too!) PERFECT package included JABCO bee pins and a bee needle threader (and we all know I am obsessed with Just Another Button Company items)...a Teresa Layman "Beehive Pincushion Kit" (including everything needed to make an adorable beehive - even the silk ribbon flowers) - I *need* to get this put together soon...and a Lang "The Bee's Knees Classic Mug" in a wonderful decorative box!

She also included an adorable wooden redbird ornament - and the insert on the wing is cross stitching on perforated paper! So very cute...

And finally (and this is so very cool!) a Warwick Model Thimble in the shape of a teapot - I have never seen anything like this before...the top of the teapot even opens up to reveal a rounded thimble underneath. I had fun taking a close-up of this unique piece so you could see the detail...

 So there you have it - a few photos (mostly relating to needlework) to inspire you! I'll be back in the next day or two with an update on the Mystery Sampler Club (Blue Jeans and Daisies Part One) and photos of the workshop project for Elegant Stitch (Bluebird Sewing Box)....I have lots of goodies to share this week!


  1. What lovely bee items to receive! Your cardinal is a cutie! What a unique thimble!


  2. Very nice, fun and unique gifts. I love the cardinal. Have a great day and thanks for sharing.

  3. Love the bees, but that thimble is so cool! I've never seen anything like!

  4. That thimble is the coolest thing I've seen in a long time. Just when you think you are jaded and have seen it all, something like that comes along! Enjoy it!
