There were almost too many Busy Bee Potholders to fit on the big maple outside my studio where I take pictures of them. Her old bark makes natural hooks for a great display.
Kathleen sent me the linen towel these potholders were born from. The image of the bees on the towel was so busy I didn’t know if I’d be able to use it. So I just made my potholders as busy as the bees.
My Busy Bee Potholders are $20 each + $5 shipping. You can see them all up close and buy them in my Etsy Shop. Just click here.

Your pictures of the potholders on the tree trunk, and the hen in the grass, are just lovely, serene even. I wanted to say after reading your thoughts on creativity with your friend, Emily, that your photographs, in my humble opinion, are such a wonderful part of your creative process. (Many times I wish that you had the time to focus on offering some of them for sale.)
And now I must decide on my “Bee” potholder for my Maria Wulf collection! My favorite author (Diana Gabaldon) releases her next book this November (after 7 years waiting), titled Go Tell the Bees that I am Gone. It’s based on a belief in some cultures that departures (of many kinds) should be shared with the bees (https://daily.jstor.org/telling-the-bees/).
Thank you Barbara, for adding to your collection. And thank you for that wonderful article on telling it to the bees. Bee keeping language is so poetic, but I’ve never heard of this. It has my mind reeling! I’ll look up Gabaldon’s book too.
You have been busy as a bee! They are gorgeous!
