This is so bee-coming something neat.
It's a pinkeeper!!
This is for the pinkeeper swap over at MaryJane's Farm. It's a secret swap, in that we do not know who we will send our pinkeeper to, nor do we know which one we will get. Kind of a fun idea, yes?
As it is a sewing item, I used vintage spools of Lily thread for the legs of the base. And I wrangled the first few tender vines of honeysuckle to make the wreath at the base. Honeysuckle- get it? The little bees were beaded on before it was stuffed with wool fleece.
I bought the fleece a year ago and I still have a ton of it left. And I have been stuffing everything with it. Well worth the cost to have it sent from my friend Robin in Washington state. :)
I hope that whoever is the recipient of this little hive likes it as much as I had fun making it. As soon as I find out who's house it will go to, it will bee on its way!!
