Down a dirt road, past fields and deep woods ~
stands a humble little farmhouse wearing chippy white paint and a rusty tin roof...
it's here at our beloved Notforgotten Farm that you will find me...chasing our kittens, puttering in the herb gardens or talking to the trees.
and I collect old & odd things.

I pull wool & cotton through linen. I walk barefoot in my garden and throw my head back and cackle when I laugh ~
I'm just a little farm-witch that loves where I am & who I'm with ~
I love seeing the past through the eye of my needle...

~ Beeskep Class ~

 Good Morning Friends & Folk ~
Happy Sunday, Happy Memorial Day Weekend to you all...

Kindly remember what this holiday is all about, 
by remembering our past, present and future heroes & heroines ~

On Friday,
my sweet friend Janice taught us how to make Beeskeps!
it was not a 'scheduled' class, just something that kinda-sorta popped up and am I glad it did :)

everyone brought their own materials to work with,
sisal, rope, hemp & seagrass...

Janice had us bring pots, bowls & pans to use as base/forms for our beeskeps ~
the hot glue was everywhere!

some of us made big skeps...

some medium-ish sized,

~ and some smaller ones too. 

we took a break to eat {of course}
and Nancy B brought her famous Lavender Brownies...
one of us in particular thoroughly enjoys every bite of her brownie!

I love my tribe ~ my girlfriends are thee best!

Thank you dear Janice for taking the time to show us how to make these ~
we all enjoyed your teaching skills and the time you took to help each one of us.

here are some of our finished skeps:
I made teeny tiny little ones;

such Summer-time fun at the Farm! 

enjoy the rest of the long weekend my friends ~
Bee Safe • Bee Happy • Bee Kind

Blessings from the Farm
