Summer Buzz Has Arrived!

Summer Buzz

Number 3 in our tea and coffee seasonal series is on the way to your favorite shop!
Buzzing honey bees complete Summer Buzz design.  This is such a pretty addition to this collection with its emerald coffee pot, surrounded by cherry blossoms, and names of all the coffee drinks that bring summer sweetness to mind.

Design size is 98x99 and is worked on 32 ct antique white Jobelan evenweave (Wichelt # 862101) over 2.  Finished size is 6 1/4" square.  Uses 8 Dinky Dyes floss colors, although the yellow uses only a few stitches, so I suggest a DMC alternative.   In addition, use Victorian Copper petite beads #42030, Mill Hill (22 beads)
 Summer Buzz contains full crosses, straight and back stitch, stem stitch and lazy daisy stitch.  Best to work this over two threads. 

  Easy to stitch, these pink and white, fluffy, "Lazy Daisy" stitches make the cherry blossoms that seem to come to life.  Each is centered with a cluster of tiny gold beads.
