Queen Bee Pillow

The other day I was at my local quilt shop when I noticed some lovely linen for sale.  Got to have it!  And I knew just what I would do with it!Since moving to Ohio we have kept a few hives of honeybees and I have become enamored with everything bee related.  Now I had the perfect fabric to embroider a queen bee design I had gotten from Urban Threads.  Because the weave was pretty open, I sewed a pillow form so the stuffing wouldn't show.

Here is a close up of the design.  The bee, crown and scroll are superimposed over some french writing.  So pretty.  Diana
