As a child, I wore mostly homemade clothes; they were beautiful and I wish I still had them. She decorated our house beautifully with homemade wreaths, hand quilted quilts, and sweet knick knacks. I am slowly following in my mother's footsteps but am still in awe of her skills: sewing, knitting, crocheting, drawing....
Enough boasting about how great my mother is. I simply wanted to share her latest creation she whipped up this weekend.
For those wondering the details of making a yarn wreath, here is what my mother shared:
"It used about half of a skein of cheapy Lion Brand Homespun.
I just used one of those plastic wrapped straw wreaths (the plastic
was helpful to keep it from snagging during the wrapping.) And
I used the squares of felt from the craft section that come in lots
of colors. You can get one big flower and one or two little flowers
from each square."
