4th of July from Catherine

First of all, my apologies to Catherine for the delay in posting this! I totaly forgot about it~sorry!!!!
Catherine stitched this for a friend celebrating a birthday on July 5th. Fantastic job on the pillow. I wish I had some of the finishing talent I see on the stitching blogs. Thanks again Catherine....Nancy

Freebie from Kim

Kim, one of my model stitchers, sent along this picture of a freebie from my website. She stitched it over one and finished it as a scissor fob. I love the primitive look the jute gives it. Nice photo, too. Thanks Kim!

Bonnie's BYOB on 45 ct fabric!!!!

I received a picture of Bonnie's finished BYOB in the mail yesterday. I can't believe she used 45 ct fabric, I could never see that, even with magnification. Bonnie used DMC floss.

Fantastic job! Thanks for sharing this with us..........Nancy

Glory Bee Gallery!

I have created this Blog as a place for stitchers of my designs to post pictures of their completed Glory Bee works. All you have to do is email the photo (jpg) and the information you want posted with the picture: name, first, last or both, city, state, both or neither. Also if you remember which fabric and fibers you used please list them as well. These do not need to be framed but cannot be works in progress. If you made changes to the design we want to see those pictures also. I love to see what changes you have made to my designs.

I hope you will consider allowing me to post your finishes for all to share.

You may email me at:

Thanks! I look forward to hearing from you.............Nancy*GloryBee
