Thanks Grace. I printed it out so I can get the proportions right. Unless I come up with a better idea I'll be using a thread spool as a base. I need something solid to start winding jute on. BTW I don't post pictures so I will just tell you how it goes.

Lots of Bee related things at Hobby Lobby - on line, too.

I guess we need to come up and visit you, Sara, so I can take and post pictures. LOL! Does your sister have a smart phone so she could post or send to me to post?

Linda, my phone takes pictures but I haven't fooled with it. I keep it in my purse for emergencies but I don't use it unless I have to. Haven't had to since last Nov when I added minutes. Maybe I'll give it a try. Thanks for the offer if I figure it out I'll send it to you. I can hear you laughing from here so be nice.

I think I am going to try to make a bee skep with twine and see how it goes. Should work in a mini garden.

Yesterday I made a mini garden flag for my mini-garden and the garden skep.

I dug around in my fabric stash and found a little piece with a skep and bees on it. Perfect for the mini garden flag. Backed it with a piece of green cloth-backed table cloth and hung on a long garden staple.

The skep's base is a 2" seed pod the shape of a skep - wound it with jute.

Only a couple of hen n/ chicks survived the winter so I will have to replace them and the garden will be finished. The wee cowboy cactus and wee twig chair and table are already in place.

All of my hen n/ chickens I planted in my mini-garden are all dead so I will have to replant in the spring. They lasted for three years so I figure that's pretty good considering they wintered over outside. Mini-gardens are fun and I think I will stick with hens n/ chickens.

Grace hope they are okay. Last year I made a wee bee skep for my mini-garden out of jute wound around a large wood bead covered with white glue. Checked on it today and the bee skep has held up but is darker. Can't believe the white glue lasted through rain and our Texas heat.

At Dollar General I found a wee water pump with basket of berries and a wee garden sign with garden tools. Will add them to my mini-garden as soon as I find a place for it. Annie has found it where it is and likes to run off with the wee table & chair. She hasn't bother them since the last time I scolded her but who knows when or if she will do it again.

Vicki, Annie is my 3 year old German Shepard Rhodesian Ridgeback Hound mix - my companion and protector. My mini garden is looking pretty good with clover and moss taking over since the hen n/ chickens died. I keep the clover to one side of the mini garden. It's in a old cream & green enamelware container. I may or may not get around to replacing the hen n/ chickens. This is the 4th Jubilee I've had the mini-garden.
