The Bee Man's Garden

"The Bee Man's Garden"
design by Anne Brown of The Goode Huswife" 
I thought that I would share this oldie but goodie. I stitched this back in 1998.
Back in the days when my eyes were better and I tended to stitch everything over one.
Those days are over :) But I am glad that I stitched over one when I was able.

The stitching measures 4.5 by 4.5 inches.

I usually display it with this folky bee skep by folk artist, S. D. Meadows.
I hope to be back shortly with a few last strawberry finishes, before moving on to patriotic creations.
"The heavens declare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of his hands."
~Psalm 19:1
Blessings, Patti

This piece is a beauty. I just love those tiny little honey bees !
I have always been drawn to bee skeeps and bees, a perfect summer memory. ;)

Oh wow this piece is awesome! I always said I would stitch on 40 count for as long as I could before I needed glasses. Now I find it hard to stitch on it WITH my glasses.
Thanks for sharing this one!

Hi Patti, I have been looking everywhere for this pattern as I am a new bee keeper. Would you have any information as to where I could locate it? Many Thanks! Ann

I have fallen in love with your Bee Man's Garden. I am a beekeeper and would love to make it, but I have searched everywhere and cannot locate the pattern. Do you know where I could get it?
