I guess I was lying, my posts aren't back to normal and maybe never will be. Why is time flying by so fast? And why can't I seem to get a handle on all I have to get done. All I really want to do is lay on the couch and read, but all I seem to be doing is trying to organize clutter . You know how I feel about clutter.
I have managed to finish the wreath from Jones Design, and while they are not just like hers, I am really happy with them. I used wool from Joann's Fabric and the wreath forms were from the $ Store. Jones Design used wool from a thrift store blanket and I have to say she is brilliant because wool is pricey-you'll seriously want to be armed with a coupon for this project. The wool blanket also looked considerably thicker than the wool form the fabric store and seemed to maybe hold shapes a little differently than the thinner wool I used. I am trying one more in hope to perfect it a little better.
The blue wreath is 12 inches, the brown is 10 inches. I like the 10 inch the best-just a cuter size I guess.
I'm giving the brown one as a gift and I think the blue one will look cute hanging on my fireplace screen when I (ever) get that done. I get a little self conscious giving people things I've made sometimes-does that ever happen to you?
I think I have entered my blue period. I was tickled to find this lamp at Home Goods. Boy that place is just so....good. Des Moines doesn't have a Home Goods. I keep track, you know, of the differences between shopping in Knoxville and Des Moines. It helps me feel better about the move ;)
