Perhaps this quote will give you a hint.
"Honeybees depend not only on physical contact with the colony, but also require its social companionship and support. Isolate a honey bee from her sisters and she will soon die."
..The Queen Must Die: And Other Affairs of Bees and Men....
Now it's no secret that I have become a huge fan of our little winged friends, so when I saw that "The Secret Life of Bees" is coming to the theater, I gave a big whOOt!! I love this book so much that I have read it 3 times now and I know it is one of those books that I could read 3 times a year and never tire from it.
I love the personal interactions and how they tie into the quote that starts each new chapter...... and I love how each quote not only relates to the sisterhood of bees, but also mirrors our fiber sisterhood, which I hold so dear to my heart.
With a cast of Queen Latifah, Jennifer Hudson, Alicia Keys and Dakota Fanning, and a fabulous story line...........well, I can barely wait!
To celebrate the movie, I am going to break out the best birthday present I received this year, from a very dear friend ....you will love it! It is just so perfect. I'm also thinking that when the fair is over I just may have to have a contest. Hmmm........I'm thinking honey yarns, bee pins and whatever else buzzes into my head...heehee.
