Fabric Book - Children & Bikes, Trikes and Wagons

I finished this little fabric book a few days ago, but just got around to taking pictures of it.  I used unbleached muslin for the book structure.  The book is embellished with various scraps of fabric, lace, trims, buttons, pins and cute pictures of children with their bikes, trikes and wagons.  The photos are printed onto prepared white cotton fabric sheets.  The overall size is 5" x 10.5".

Honey Bees on the Move

We had a swarm of honey bees this morning that settled onto two trees.  The largest swarm of bees on one tree is about 2 ft x 1 ft.  The smaller swarm is hanging from a branch and totals about 6 - 8 inches.  As I write this, the smaller one has moved, but the larger one is still on the tree.
