This is "Bee-utiful Flowers. I'm ashamed this took me so long... It started out to be a wall-hanging, but I decided to make it into a pillow cover instead. 

I printed words on cloth to make the center of the flowers. They read  "Forgiving" "Couragious" "Generous" "Productive" and "Cheerful."  I quilted the words " Peaceful" "Creative"  "Content" and "...'Lieve" into the borders and the word "Just..." in the sky.

 I had originally planned to make beads to embellish it with, but, Gosh, that was gonna take an awful lot of time, not to mention glass... so then I thought i'd just embroider it.  THEN I saw the cute buttons in the store, and. being the lazy cuss that I am, I took the easiest way out! LOL If you were to copy my design, you'd probably come up with a jillion other ways to add bees to your flowers! 

While I was sitting in the sunshine, stitching the last of the buttons on, a friendly little huney bee can buzzing by and landed not far from my feet. I wonder what the little guy was doing out this time of the year? It's getting pretty chilly for bugs...
