Honey Bee Embroidery Design - Details

Remember this project?  Here are all the project details: the stitch list and the color palette floss numbers. 

For the red berry clusters, I used French Knots.  The stems were done with Stem Stitch.  The crown was done with Back Stitch and Straight Stitch.  The bee antennae and top of the wing outline are Stem Stitch.  The bee's head is Satin Stitch:  

To mark off the color lines on the bee's body, I used Double Knot Stitch.

The circles are done with Back Stitch, the dark teal flowers are Lazy Daisy Stitch and the bluish green flowers are outlined with Chain Stitch and filled with Pistil Stitch:

Here are the floss color numbers that I used for this project:

Hi Kim,

I forgot to tell you how much I love the crown you put into this design. It's a perfect detail. The colors you picked for this project are lovely. And all the textures are great!

Take care,
