The king and queen, plus 2 free embroidery patterns
For some people 2020 was an awful year, for my best friend and I, it was a great year because we started a business that is centered around love… breeding Boston terriers.
Meet Kingsley Bee and Queenie Lily Bee, that’s them in the photo above. Kingsley is the blue Boston in the foreground, and Queenie is the black and white Boston in the background. They are our first set of Boston terriers. Queenie lives with my best friend and her family, and Kingsley lives with me.
We chose Boston terriers because of their gentle nature and because they are small enough to be great companions to any size household. They’re also amazing with kids. Boston’s are high energy when you need them to be, and low key when you need them to cuddle.
The antics of Boston terriers are out of this world funny. They are sweet, sometimes sassy, and always unpredictable. If you’d like to see Kingsley, Remi, and occasionally Queenie and Pistol in action, you can follow Kingsley’s Instagram page by clicking here.
If you made it this far, congratulations… I have a secret for you…
One day I decided to embroider each one of the members of our “woof-pack”, that’s what we call them when they’re all together playing. I started with Kingsley and quickly stitched up Queenie’s profile as well. Eventually, I am going to share all four patterns with you but this post contains only patterns for Kingsley and Queenie. They are our first two pups, and I’ll share the other two patterns with you next week for “Free Pattern Friday“.
