Okay, I know it’s early. But I saw this cute tutorial over at Good Knits and I couldn’t help myself.
This wreath took about an hour to make. It’s not hard to do (it’s pretty much the same technique as my Embellished Flip Flops), just tedious. I changed the edging to shells for mine, and I want to add some flowers or other pretty things to it soon. The way things have been going lately, I knew I better sit down and do it the minute I bought the wreath form, or else! And yep, it’s been sitting on my table for a week waiting for the finishing touches…just as soon as I get through my never-ending pile of deadlines. Mmhmm. Yeah, I didn’t even weave in the ends yet. Oh, and I used Brown Sheep Burly Spun (way less than a skein–the remains are in the ball in the pic) to make this– here is my ravelry page for slightly more details.

I just found a baggie of the leaves I made a few years ago when I was cleaning out my craft supplies, and it made me smile. Oh, and I can’t forget my Turkey Day Place Cards–from 2007. Eons ago! Still cute, though!
