I've finally learned.
I'm starting on Christmas decor projects now instead of in December.
(Ladies and gentlemen, she can be taught!!)
I've had this honey bun of Crazy 8 hanging around for a while.
I almost sold it in my Etsy shop. Almost. It's discontinued, and would probably have been snapped up by some poor quilter who ran out of fabric for his/her project.
But it matches the table runner for my front table, so I decided to make it into something. (No pic of the table runner today; it's in the attic with the rest of the Christmas stuff.)
I've always wanted to make this adorable wreath tutorial from Moda Bake Shop.
It's no-sew, it's fast, it's totally adorable. Instant gratification!!
I happened to have a 14" wire frame lying around. Who doesn't? ;)
The project involved a lot of tying.
And a lot of lint.
And two episodes of Friends, two Seinfelds, and one Big Bang Theory.
But look how pretty!
And so painless.
Do I have to put it in the attic? Can't I just leave it out for a couple of months?
I love all of the fraying selvage-y goodness.
