I lovingly call my husband, Mr. Honey Bee because he introduced me to the health benefits of using locally produced honey. He isn’t a bee keeper, but he always goes makes sure we have the golden liquid. Even as a little girl, I loved the sound of bees in the summer. When one came near me, I’d watch it buzz around me rather than run. And who can resist the story of the bee charmer in the movie Fried Green Tomatoes?
About 11 years ago I made a quilt that highlighted bugs and bees. Applique isn’t my talent, but I tried it for the first time. This has been a special quilt to our daughter so when I saw the Honey Bee stamp set and dies in the Mini Catalog, it was another stamp set I knew I’d use a lot.
