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."
I love that wreath and the blue hues. Cheers
I'm amazed by your mother's skills too. You should see what she made me for my birthday!
Love your wreath... you rock.
that wreath is beautiful! I love making wreaths but I've only done them for the holidays. maybe i'll try an "everyday" wreath like this to hang on our front door!;)
