It Bee-gins

Every so often I go off topic of crochet to my other interests. This is one of those times. We have talked about beekeeping for several years, Finally it seems to be the time. So through out the year I will be sharing the new adventure. This is the bee-ginning.

We decided to try out something new and ordered a Flow hive. But are also going to have a traditional hive. opening_door-gallery173_Feb18220323

The hive arrived and here are pictures of it being put together. My grandson is required to do a project for FFA this semester so this was perfect timing. He helped assembly the hive with his dads help. It was interesting to watch them work together and his dad teach him about holding a drill properly, etc. Now my grandson is going to build a couple of brood boxes from the templates.That will be another post along with us getting the bees to go in the hive in April. IMG_20160220_114131IMG_20160220_133904IMG_20160220_113732



Crochet Translation Project

I want to share a wonderful site I found recently. For those of you who want to use crochet patterns from other countries but find that translation of crochet terms can be almost impossible like me, I am sharing this post from Oombawka Design Enjoy and tell her NadineCreates sent you:)

This is the one I hope to use in the near future.

Owl Cocoon

This is an owl cocoon and hat made from ShiFio’s Patterns. It is one of her most downloaded patterns although she has so many to chose from that I am going back again to add to my collection!


This one was done in pastel green but I think it would be beautiful in light gray, cream and black. I made a blanket for a little boy a while back in those colors and it was sharp looking, and manly. Just saying.
