It’s amazing to think that the Violet Carpenter Bee is not a thing of fantasy, these incredibly beautiful, luscious dark bees have reflective violet wings. Now just try to pronounce their Latin name:  Xylocopa Violacea! They are a large bee, up to 3cm long and have an impressive buzz.

Due to climate change, they have now arrived in the UK from Southern Europe and the first one was spotted in Leicestershire in 2007. They are however still extremely rare due to a lack of suitable nesting sites, so it’s a real sign of luck to see one. The name “carpenter bee” is derived from the fact they nest in rotting wood.

This beautiful embroidery features Violet at the centre surrounded by this species' favourite flowers including purple thistles. This design plays with some wonderful embroidery techniques from the tassel stitch to raised chain stitches. Finished with a piece of luxury violet velvet ribbon to hang.

Size: 7-inch embroidery hoop.

Flora the finch is a cross-stitch that truly celebrates joyful floral colour. This prettiest little plump bird is perched on a branch surrounded by an array of folksy flowers in different designs and seven different colours. 

Her wings are a harmony of pinks, blue and yellows, topped with her very own floral patterns. Flora is finished with a flourish of a large cerise pink bow which really gives her a luxurious feel.

Flora is part of the Secret Garden Range which celebrates nature’s most beautiful and unusual insects and animals. Cross Stitch is a simple embroidery technique likened to painting by numbers. Each square of the Aida fabric is filled with a little cross of colour, which is where it gets its name. This box contains a full easy-to-follow cross-stitch guide as well as a pattern.

Cross Stitch is on an 11-count Aida fabric, perfect for beginners upwards. 7-inch embroidery hoop.

Unbelievably the Rosie Maple Moth is a real moth that is one of nature’s true wonders. This Unmistakable small woolly bright pink and yellow moth is part of the great silk moth’s family and is native to North America, Latin name Dryocampa Rubicunda.

Rosie is finished with a flourish of a large cerise pink bow which really gives her a luxurious feel.
