~ Industry ~

 
It is not how busy you are, but why you are busy — 
the bee is praised, the mosquito is swatted. 
~Author Unknown


How doth the little busy Bee
Improve each shining hour,
And gather honey all the day
From ev'ry op'ning flow'r!

~Isaac Watts (1674–1748), 
excerpt from "Idleness and Mischief" (children's hymn)
 

 Busy as a little bumbler-bee here lately...
working on punch needle ~


and rug hooking...


~ and more rug hooking.



I'll have 2 new cross stitch designs coming soon,
they are being stitched by another little busy-bee friend! 

The bees were busy, 
and their humming brought pleasant hopes of summer. 
~Lady John Manners, "Belvoir at Eastertide," 
in The Garden: An Illustrated Weekly Journal of Horticulture In All Its Branches, 
1886 May 8th

Happy Rainy Wednesday to you!
 
Blessings from the Farm ~

Beautiful projects that are also making all of us "Bee Happy" today!

Big bumble bees are already busy outside my window here with those big magenta pink azalea flowers this morning. By afternoon the buzz is audible as the bush is alive with beautiful bumblebees everywhere!
