#119 - Babe's Honey Farm
Life is the Flower...
for which Love is the Honey! 



There are so many wonderful small family farms near my home, and over the years I've wanted to stitch some of them into samplers. Babe’s Honey Farm is a companion to Ravenhill Farm, Strawberry Fields Farm and Jingle Bells Christmas Tree farms. This latest Farm Sampler is based on one of our oldest farms near where I live, a beekeeping and honey farm. When I was growing up there wasn’t any other honey to buy. Babe and Charlie started their farm with a couple of hives and a market stand on the side of the road in Victoria early 1940’s, but it was Babe herself who loved the beekeeping craft. She eventually bought a large tract of land in farming country, and there she produced the best Wildflower honey on the west coast for years. Babe has recently passed on, and this farm sampler commemorates her personal values and the sweetness of her honey for the future. At the top of the Babe’s Honey Farm sampler you'll find a couple of farm cottages, one to process the honey into the jars, and the other for the owner to live in. Lower down you will see several beekeeping staff carefully removing honey from the combs or gently walking through and inspecting the boxes and straw hives. You’ll see a multitude of special flowers, especially wildflowers that were so much part of Babe’s legacy. Finally, at the bottom is a Market Stall, where Babe sold her honey, beeswax, candles, pollen, soaps, and honey balsamic vinegar. Delicious! Each of the bands are separated by interesting specialty stitched bands. Parts of this design can be stitched separately, and can be used in many different ways. The top and bottom scenes are both wonderful as stand-alone designs, perhaps using the petit alphabet (on our website in the Sweet Pea nametag in the Free Patterns) to personalize your sampler. You could also use some of the motifs for a nametag, greeting card, or honey bee stitching accessories. I'm sure your imagination can supply lots more uses for all these dear little motifs. Enjoy bringing this delightful farm sampler to life! - Thea
