A new year, a new moon a new project.
I've been hankering for just something little to do as all my "in progress" projects are up to needing brain power.
My flower hexi quilt needs more brain power to finish and it is more a winter project to sit underneath it and sew the last little corner together.- nearly there maybe winter 2014 it will get finished?
So I was over the moon when I found Tiny Owl Knits and The Beekeeper's quilt made up of knitted honeycomb hexipuffs.. And what I love about them is they are 80% mindless. A bit like making flower hexis - lets one feel in a meditative state while knitting or sewing away. Perfect for just those snippets of time you wanna just sit outside and enjoy your cuppa while you steal a few minutes for yourself.
The Beekeepers' Quilt pattern can be purchased via raverly (I'm new to raverly so don't really know what I am doing)

My beekeepers project is a cushion to go with my flower quilt.
I fell in love with the Monet type wool which is Koigu - every skein is painted by hand.

Monet - pure JOY!
Just think I will have my very own Monet bee keepers cushion.
As I have no sock wool sash I'm buying the wool. Abbey found for me Koigu KPPPM sock yarn MINI skeins. Mini meaning there is 25 yards in each skein enough to make 2 hexipuffs in each skein.
Chiagu is pulling together 20 skeins for me.
I sure love the feeling one gets when a new project is planned and started. SMILE
