I spent most of the weekend reading the New Harry Potter book, and most of the rest of the week getting the kids ready to begin school next week.
I folded the crane ring in the picture. It is supposed to be a dollar bill ring.
The Idea for the flexagon in the video from previous post was inspired by this post.

I designed a Scooby Doo continuous line pattern for borders and large open spaces. The outer border has a modified version or this pattern, that fits the dimensions better.
View of outer border from the back.
3 yards of flannel was used to make a small throw to match. Same fabric front and back (using a yard and a half for each side).

Our neighbor called a local beekeeper and he brought a box for the bees.
The beekeeper brushed the bees into a small cardboard box with a small hand broom and dumped them into the wooden hive.
He managed to get the queen and the other bees began to migrate to the box. It was interesting to see the little bees sit on the edge of the box and fan their wings. I was told they were doing this to fan the scent of the queen, and let the other bees know she had moved.
The beekeeper gave the branch one good shake and knock the majority of the remaining bees off. Then he sprayed the tree branch with something that was really unpleasant. He said that most times when he sprays the stuff "people start looking at there shoes to see if they stepped in something."
The box was placed on the ground to allow all the bees a chance to move in. The beekeeper will return at night to get the box full of bees.
