Painted Daisies

A few years back, I was fortunate enough to find a huge spool of cotton daisy trim at a flea market.  There had to have been at least 100 yards on the spool and I only paid $5.00 for it!

I got a bee in my bonnet yesterday and decided I wanted to play with the fabric dyes so I pulled out my daisies and went to town!

I'll be using these on some upcoming projects.

And speaking of bees in a bonnet, I finished stitching my Bee purse:

Scott said it looks like something for a 12 year old.  Well, I've been known to be childish childlike.  LOL!  This one is mine!  I'll have to make some time to put it together.  I still have to put my Peacock quilt together too!

This seems a very happy bee, lying on his back because his belly is full of honey. Very pretty!

Well, to me, it looks like joy! And it makes me smile. So, that's a good thing...at any age!
