Wednesday in progress.
Week in progress.
Work in progress.
Wreath in progress.
It was impossible to get a decent picture of this wreath, so please believe me when I tell you it is much better in person. I've been working on this wreath for several months now, adding a scrap of fabric or yarn here and there as I complete projects, or clean up the floor under my sewing machine. I got the idea from a swag made of fabric scraps I saw on a design blog, but I'm not really a swag kind of gal, so out came the embroidery hoop and the wreath has slowly progressed since. To make your own, simply tie your scraps onto a hoop and bunch them together. It's that simple.
The wreath is a nice reminder of all the projects I've worked on over the past few months. If I'm feeling lazy, I have only to look at the wreath to remind me of my productivity.
Speaking of lazy, sorry I disappeared for a few days. You might have been worried I was sitting at the park drinking Big Gulps and wearing a hat and sunglasses, but I've actually been sitting in front of the fireplace drinking hot cocoa and wearing pajamas. It's been heavenly. I think I needed a few days away from the screen to create more scraps of fabric and yarn to add to my wreath, start reading a few books (Eclipse and James and the Giant Peach), and paint the new cabinets my dear husband built in the pantry. Also there was the small pressing matter of laundry. Clean clothes are overrated if you ask me, but my family insists on them.
I'm off to wash another load and make myself a cup of hot cocoa, and if all goes well this evening, I'll have a few more fabric scraps to add to my W.I.P.
