Cover artwork: Like Bees to Honey

As promised, I’m posting some of the hand-stitched fragments that the wonderful Becky Adams created for the cover of Like Bees to Honey.

I’ve more images that I’m able to post over the next couple of days and then hopefully (fingers crossed whilst doing a drum roll) I’ll be able to reveal how all of these bits and pieces were stitched into my new front cover.

I think Becky is magic.
