From the beginning of beekeeping in the United States in the 1600's until the early 1800's, honey was largely an article of local trade.
Many farmers and villagers kept a few colonies of bees in box hives to supply their own needs and those of some friends, relatives, and neighbors, so it is not unusual to find bee decorations in colonial quilt work and needle point.
This tiny bee is fashioned after a colonial quilt illustration. The "outline" is not meant to outline the bee; in fact it is the original needlepointer's interpretation of the bee in her work.
