A Finish, or The Beekeeper’s Apprentice Series Commemoration Gift

Finally- a finish! This Mill Hill kit, called “Bumble Bee Inn,” was way too fun to make. This was my first foray into beading, and I enjoyed it immensely; I look forward to other bead-intensive projects. I made this for my best friend to commemorate us starting the Mary Russell- Sherlock series by Laurie R. King. It has become a huge favorite between us; I’m on book three already…and my lovely fellow bookworm in on book nine. The beehive is significant to this series because our now retired Sherlock has developed a passion as a beekeeper. Mary and Sherlock meet- instant kindred spirits united- and amazing mystery stories develop (I will dare to say King writes equal to Sir ACD).

Process Photos- This was luckily a pretty quick stitch and makeup. In the end, I turned it into a magnet for her.

Now off to the post office to send my gift to NY!

Happy stitching!
