As some of you who came to the opening will know, we gave a bee kit to everyone who stood still long enough to be nabbed! The kit contained 2 pieces of calico, some stuffing and a bee template for our creative guests to decorate in any way that took their fancy. Some Grandmas even took a couple for their grandchildren. The only 'rule' was that each bee had to have the maker's name and the date on it somewhere so that people could identify them once we hung them up in the shop.
Well the first batch have flown their way back to us, and after much 'oooohing' and 'aaahing' between everyone in the shop, I have got around to putting them up on one of our beams. Don't they look great!
People's creativity never ceases to amaze me! 5 more have now flown in so just a few more need to arrive before I get the ladder our again and add to our growing family! If you still have one sitting around at home then we would love to see her!
