I saw the most adorable small CROCHET BEE, whilst I was out and about and it had been made and 

placed in a little clear bag with a Bee Kind message printed on a tag.  

'I am not lost but If I made you smile please take me home #randomactsofkindness'

I was desperate to get home and crochet a little small fuzzy bumblebee of my own. And I wanted to crochet a small BEE to put at the bottom of the Crochet wind spinner I had just made. 

SEE the Windspinner Crochet Pattern HERE 

The small crochet bee is adorable cute and can be used in many circumstances, perhaps to add some colour to a crocheted wreath or a cute addition to a crochet flower bouquet! 

Over the years I have learned to LOVE Bees. I am fascinated by beekeepers and the work they do.

But also how our bumblebees are SO important to our planet.  And how easily we can help save the bees by encouraging them into the garden by planting bee-friendly plants and flowers.

Some task in the North of Scotland! Where I live! but I'm learning and finding new and wonderful plants that bees will find attractive and will survive our cold north winds. 

Also, I love that the BEE is also the Symbol used in the Bee Kind message, in regards to mental health and online trolling. 

SO I HAve written a fun easy crochet pattern for a small BEE
