Friday Instagram Finds No. 27 with The Mason Bee

I hope you're having a spooktacular Friday today! Halloween is tomorrow, and here in the United States, it's a very popular holiday, right up there with Christmas and the Fourth of July. I've included some information at the end about an auction on Instagram I've donated two pieces to, the proceeds of which go to the Van Drie family.


I've followed Laura for a while now, and just love her work. She's trained in hand embroidery, and her skill comes out in every piece she makes. Laura also has a blog called Mason Bee where she chronicles what she's making and posting on Instagram. Laura's work is intricate, and beautifully detailed.

She's one of those hand embroiderers whose work makes me want to be a better hand embroiderer! Remember to use #feelingstitchyig, like Laura did, to make sure I see what you're making. Let's take a look at Laura of @themasonbee!

I'm so sorry to have to tell you that the cutie in the picture above, 6 year old Kaylee, passed away suddenly and tragically early last week. Kaylee is the daughter of one of my stitchy friends, Kristen, who you know as @kaymaboutique on Instagram. As you can imagine, this has been a very difficult time for Kristen and her family. A group of us stitchy girls thought maybe an auction on Instagram would be a good idea to help raise money for Kristen's family, and Kayla, who you know as @knottydickens cleared it with Kristen and ran with the idea.

All I can say is, boy is our Maker Community a great one!! As of right now when I write this post, when you go to the official @candlesforkaylee Instagram page, you'll see there are over 150 posts. That means that there are over 150 items that makers from around the world have donated to be auctioned off. I don't know about you, but it makes my heart swell.

The auction officially starts this Sunday, November 1st at 7:30 pm EST. I hope that you will take a look, open your heart, and open your wallet to help out Kristen and her family in their time of need.
