‘Bee Happy’ Bumblebee embroidery hoop


I live on an organic farm and we strive to grow our crops in harmony with nature, In the Autumn we leave the kale and the broccoli plants to go to flower, and they become a mecca for bumblebees. Bumblebees of all shapes and sizes, busily buzzing from yellow flower to yellow flower as they gather pollen. A last minute rush before the weather changes. I could stand for hours in amongst the kale watching them, listening to all the different pitches of buzz they make, and wonder at the marvelousness of it all. To honour the  bees I have created this bumblebee hoop, and called it ‘Bee Happy’, because that is just what they make me. I hope this mini original makes you happy too.




‘Bee Happy’ is a textile hoop art, featuring a bumblebee in a 6 inch embroidery hoop backed with felt for a smooth finish. It comes with a ribbon hanger, which can be removed if you prefer to prop it up instead.

It is made from an acrylic painting onto cotton fabric, which I then sew over with threads and my sewing machine, gradually building up the layers until I am happy with the way it looks. I then cut it out and applique it to the background fabric before framing it with the hoop.

It is very tactile and the beauty of the hoop is that you can touch it as much as you want!

Enjoy your textile hoop art anywhere in your home, but hang out of direct sunlight to avoid fading.

Please note that this hoop is made to order and you need to allow time (2 – 3 days) for it to be created. I will email you to let you know when it has been shipped.
