To bee or not to bee

     Okay, the title is corny.  But I could not come up with a catchy title and that was the first thing that popped in my head.  This time of the year with all that is going on I am surprised that anything popped in my overloaded brain!!
      As you may have surmised Every Inchie's word is "bee".  While I don't care for the little beasts I do recognize their usefulness.  I have had some nasty experiences with things that sting - wasps, hornets and the like.  Once my brother and I were mowing our grandparents' yard.  He was in the front and I was doing the back.  We were separated by a hedge so we couldn't see each other.  I finished and still heard his mower running, so I stepped around to see how much longer he had.  There sat the mower - still running - and he was no where to be seen.  So being the potentially bossy big sister, I went over and grabbed the mower to "take over and do his job correctly".  I took hold and started to move when I was surrounded by a swarm of bees or wasps or something stingy!  He had mowed over an underground nest greatly disturbing the occupants and then took off running.  I had no idea and quickly gave the bees another target!  Not a pleasant experience!  My stings had stings!!!
Oh well, here is my bee and he is so sweet he would not sting a soul!
       Made by Joey's letter was R.  We are almost through the alphabet!  I used the tangles rysa, r2, and ringeli. 
      Well, it is off to . . .  hmm, I am not sure.  I think I shall do some watercolor painting today.  Or draw.  Or color.  Either way it shall be creative.  Hope you have a wonderful weekend!  See you soon!

  1. Hi, Kathy,

    Love your cute little bee! I also love your tile. You used a couple tangles I've never seen before and they all work so well together. And you can't go wrong with red, white, and blue!!

  2. love the colors on the R and the designs! I am with you on wasps. When my daughter was 4 I disturbed a nest and they attacked me and her. We had to go to the hospital! The drs stopped counting stings at 30+ for her and 50+ for me! So I am not a fan! Sorry for your experience. But love the cute Bee

  4. I think your little bee looks most amiable, despite your history of unfortunate encounters...when you talk about your Tangles art I am completely lost, not having any encounter with these before exploring your blog, but they do look very interesting, Dixx
