Bee Study

In between all the packing I've been doing, and I've been doing TONS of packing, I received an email from Bonnie Olson in Brookfield, Massachusetts. 

I couldn't wait to show you all what she's done with my new Bee Study design! It's AMAZING!!


She covered a book!!  Isn't it gorgeous??


Bonnie stitched her sampler on 40-Count Rook from R&R Reproductions.  Then she found a book which measured 4 1/2 inches high, 7 1/2 inches wide when opened and 3 1/2 inches thick when closed.  It's a perfect fit!

Lucky for me, Bonnie is going to be on the look-out for another book the same size.  I'm hoping, with lots of begging, Bonnie might be willing to stitch the design again so I can have a book model too.

Back to packing.  It's never ending!
