quilting to bees in less then 10, bonus if you don't use "insects"

quilting -> children -> science -> biology -> entomology -> bees

( I could've got there faster one step faster with 'insects', though

That's 6! Yeah, there's a trick to it, if you don't use insects--too easy that way.

I can do it several ways in 5 without the insects, still looking to make it shorter.

One would have thought, that SOMEONE would have tagged their quilt or sewing related book with "Bees"

The best I can do is 6, without insects:

quilting > california > cooking > drink > brewing > honey > bees

What are the 5s?

Opinicus, 5 is best possible in this case (says my program), hope you didn't waste TOO much time looking for something shorter. =)

Oh, no fair! (Okay, maybe it was helpful this time.)

nope I spent about 15 minutes, then left it up to someone else to find a shorter path!
:-) There's a fine line between chore and fun!
