Thank you for your positive comments yesterday and returning for day 2 and the letter B of the April A-Z Challenge 2016.
For today we have:
noun - a straight line between two places
idiom - to go towards something/somebody as quickly as you can
origin - the early 19th century with reference to the straight line supposedly taken instinctively by a bee when returning to the hive
I think we knew that anyway, especially where the words "cross stitch" and "sale" come together!! I'm wondering though, can you make a beeline towards an internet shop with a computer and mouse or smart phone and finger in the same way you would make a beeline towards an actual shop in person? I don't see why not, but it doesn't have quite the same ring to it.
Here are a selection of bee-themed charts:
Buzzy in the Garden by Cinnamon Cat Designs
Barnabees Quest Part 1 by Just Nan
Bee Hive by Lisa Desimini (HAED)
My personal Bs for today are:BrickLink.com - an internet site where hubby and I have "owned" a Lego shop since 2002 through which we buy and sell lots of those little plastic bricks.
Brownies - I was a Brownie in my distant youth - 9th Clacton-on Sea it was.
BSc Econ (Hons) - my degree from University College Swansea (as it was then known) in Geography and Development Studies (for those not familiar with degree names it stands for Bachelor of Economic and Social Science with Honours).
For my finished project today I have chosen:
Ballerina by Bette Davis (DMC)
stitched in 2005/6 for my daughter who was doing ballet at the time
The tutu was stitched using a blend of normal DMC and metallic threads and was an absolute pain in the proverbial! There should have been a flowery border but I didn't think it was needed because the frame it was in at the time provided border enough.
And so ends the Bs. Back tomorrow with a New Start, then Monday with C.Rachel x
