Busy Bee...

I spent yesterday in Sarasota, knitting with my friends. I finished this doll coat and beret last winter, but I'm working on a second one in purple (it's one of my UFOs) and want to finish it, too.

The blue one is called "Snowflower" and it, along with the purple set, is for sale in the Boutique. I'm not neglecting the creamy, bamboo sweater I've been working on either, and hope to have that finished as my "evening knitting" permits.

You know me...Busy Bee!

Which, by the way, is something else I want to share with you today. Remember those beautiful magnolias? Well, I grabbed my camera when I saw this little bee practically drunk with pollen from one of the huge blossoms.
I laughed out loud to see him so intent on his collecting
mission that he was actually rolling in the flower goodness.
...Mother Nature going about her daily duties...
...and by the end of the day, all those little bits
sitting in the petal of this blossom were gone.
When a new blossom opens tomorrow, this
busy bee and his buzzing friends
will return and start all over again.
Hmmm... I wonder if there's such a thing in
Bee Land as "magnolia honey"?

Good Morning, Donna! Those pictures are priceless! You got great shots so glad you didn't get stung! I love magnolia blossums, we don't have many trees up here in MO. I remember that knitted coat from when you showed it before. I think it's one of the most adorable things you've made. You are such a talented knitter. I have several WIP myself. It's always good to finish one! Have a great weekend! Twyla

Your doll clothes are adorable. I'll bet purple is going to be a great color for this outfit. And I love the pictures of the bee - makes you realize that if you just stop and watch the world around you, you will see the greatest things.

First - the doll clothes are so sweet!

Second - the bee drunk on the magnolia is just wonderful. I love your photos, Donna! They've brought a smile to my face this morning.

Hi Donna,
You are so amazingly talented and everything you make is so lovely.
The little coat and hat is adorable and the wedding gowns in your previous post just takes my breath away. I looked at them the other night and I was so sleepy that I didn't leave a comment. I was more or less snooping around blogland.

Your blog is so much fun.
