THE COTTAGE/BEE COLLECTION

First of all I would really like to thank everyone for there support over the past few months.  I am catching up with collections and fit and ready for action and I am so greatful for all the wonderful messages I have received.

Well my mind has now been buzzing with more ideas and I really hope you will like this little collection using Creative Linen by Rowan Yarns.  You can view this yarn by clicking on the link below.

I took my inspiration  for this collection from my recent visit to the Cotwalds and also from our local beekeepers.

Bees are a dying breed and they do so much for the food chain.

Do watch out for more Bee /Cottage Designs heading onto this page over the coming weeks.  

I would also like to thank our local cherry farmers Rupert Mount and Liz Mount  and his lovely family who allowed me to produce this photoshoot and our local Beekeepers who inspired me to put this collection together.  Do feel free to click on the link below if you live in the Bedfordshire Area and fancy doing a spot of cherry picking in the Summer.
