Today it’s the bee’s turn, and I made lots of progress, thanks to winter sports on TV! Here’s last time:

In progress shot of a counted cross-stitch-pattern. Shown is a background stitched in mottled yellows and oranges, with honeycomb hexagons emerging on the right side and little blue flowers interspersed.

I’ve added lots more honeycomb this time, and the bee has acquired a second feeler and leg. The diagonal line is the top of a wing, and the bits of black on the far right are the beginnings of a couple of blue flowers. I’m planning to finish the background in this area before doing the blue flowers, and then continue on to the wing, proabably working a bit of the bee’s body before it so the wing can be anchored where it belongs.

In progress-picture of a counted cross-stitch project, showing an area of honeycomb in oranges and yellows. On the top, a small five-petalled blue flower, on the bottom the head of a bee with a feeler and a front leg extending over the honeycomb.

Here are the other members of the SAL who are posting today. Make sure to check out their work, it’s amazing: Avis, Claire, Gun, Christina, Kathy, Margaret, Heidi, Jackie, Sunny, Megan, Deborah, Sharon, Daisy, AJ, Cathie, Linda, Helen, Connie, Cindy and Mary Margaret.
