a honeybee did not fly up my skirt

I was cleaning up the car yesterday, taking some trash to the garbage can, when I felt a sharp little pain just above my tailbone. It couldn't have been a bee sting. I'd brushed up against a stray blackberry thorn. That or I was imagining it.

Then I sat down in the car. That one was definitely a sting.

I had a yellow jacket up my skirt. The difference between honeybees and yellow jackets is that yellow jackets can sting more than once. And apparently their stings itch a whole lot more.

Weekly Stash Report

I added a wonderful lot of fabric this week -- about 260 yards, judging by the weight of the bags. And that's after Grandma went through and pulled out everything that wasn't cotton. I would've loved to have seen that garage sale for myself, but I'll be happy with the fabric, which seems to be mostly the small scale prints I love for my scrap quilts. I can't wait to start playing with it, but I've got a couple of deadlines to meet before I let myself get distracted by pretty new colors.

You forgot to add that they are meaner than Honeybees.

Wow - that's quite a find! Hope you enjoy going through the fabric much more than the yellow jacket enjoyed going up your skirt!

I think you won the prize for most fabric added this week! LOL.

Hubby is allergic to bees and we panic like a little girl when he sees one! That is really funny!

Try benadryl for the itching, it works wonders for horsefly stings.

I *hate* yellow jackets! I know, it's a strong word, but they are mean-spirited little suckers (or, errrrr...stingers?!). Hope you aren't itching for long!! :)
