New French Knitting project

I am just buzzing with excitement as my latest project,
 this little beehive pincushion,
is being featured in the latest edition of  Creating Country Threads magazine.
Do you like the little bee buttons? They are hand made by a local lady.

Here's a photo of the project in progress.
I have quite a few different pincushions now in my studio.
Do you have a pincushion collection too?

Cheerio for now,
Sandi x

Such a fantastic project, so adorable. I bought my daughter a spool knitter and she has learned to use it. I am always looking for projects, I love your hive!

This sweet project is far more interesting than the usual potholders made from French Knitting! So cute...a real brainwave.

You might like to check out my Flickr Spool Knitter group, and I currently manage the Yahoo Spoolknitter group .... lots of ideas to be found at both.
