It's time now to stitch for summer, four small bees to stitch, perfect for making into ornaments to put on a "bee tree". The Hi Honey Bee design comes on a business card size so it is perfect to tuck into a tiny space for any emergency stitching (being stuck in traffic, at the doctor's office, waiting in line at the DMV). Because we have heard from many of you that you like the little projects, and because that is our favorite also, we have put out some more minis, small enough to fit in the tiniest pouch or purse.
