I have been so excited about seeing all the embroidery that is going on out there in Blogsville, I decided I wanted to do an embroidered siggy this time with a little beaded bee at the bottom.
The beehive is the Utah state emblem. Here is a little blurb on the beehive from Utah.com ~
Emblem and Motto
The Beehive and word "industry" became the official motto and emblem for Utah on March 4, 1959. Industry is associated with the symbol of the beehive. The early pioneers had few material resources at their disposal and therefore had to rely on their own "industry" to survive. The beehive was chosen as the emblem for the provisional State of Deseret in 1848 and was maintained along with the word "industry" on the seal and flag when Utah became a state in 1896.
