How many of you are on Pinterest? Oh my it's not bad enough that looking at blogs and such kept me on the computer too long, now I have Pinterest to look at.
I found this wreath here through Pinterest and just fell in love. Of course none of my craft stores here in town sold the yarn, I went on Jo-Anns.com and they do sell it but it was out of stock at the time, but luckily one of the craftying ladies in my craft group had some and she offered to give them to me. Hurrah!! It calls for an 8" wreath but I went with 12". I used a little more than one skein of yarn on the 12" wreath.
On her wreath she used ribbon flowers and just cut them apart. I used my EK Success punch and I couldn't find the color pink pins I wanted so I colored my white pins that I had for my quilting, with a pink prismacolor marker. I tried to use some alcohol inks I had but they came out too dark for my taste, but I used 2 of them on the wreath. I also punched out butterflies from Martha Stewart and added them to the wreath with yellow pins :)
My daughter and her hubby are here for a few days to celebrate my birthday, so nice that it is the same time they were on spring break. Today we were planning on going to the Botanical garden since all the trees are blooming around here but even though the forecast said 20% rain it has been raining and thunder and lightning all morning, so I guess we are going to have to find an indoor thing to do.
Hope you enjoy a wonderful weekend,
Thanks so much for stopping by,
