Another fun round-up, this one showcasing the humble bee embroidery pattern! Bees feel like they’ve been popular for a while and I’m a fan. It really feels like winter’s over when I start to see bees buzzing around and the flowers start to bloom so these patterns are giving me a little spark of springtime joy! What do you like about bee motifs, do you think?

Hi, Stephanie, I don’t know if you mentioned this or someone else did but Farmhouse Fabrics acquired all the Bluprint embroidery kits and they are selling them at a good price. Your readers will need to hop on it as they are going fast!
