Deck the Halls

i lost count

I have about six craft projects in the works at any given time. It's so easy to keep gathering materials for them, and you can come across so many neat ideas for things; it's much more difficult finding the time to actually do them.

Lately I've been looking around and taking inventory of all the unfinished projects...my granny square blanket (I've lost most of my motivation on that one as it came through the move a little musty), another crocheted afghan I'd nearly finished only to have to unravel and rework due to shoddy joining technique, a Christmas quilt, stockings (indefinitely on hold), oh, and there are so many more. I decided it was a good time to stop collecting and start working with what I have. First up was this ornament wreath I've been wanting to make ever since I came across this photo on flickr by pixiegenne. I still like hers more, but I think I made a fair approximation, especially for a first attempt.

Michele, I haven't checked your blog in awhile. Glad you're settled. I LOVE the ornament wreath you made, very nice and classy (shiny, too). I am impressed. Have a nice holiday. I also enjoyed Evie's tap dance with the pill bottle!!

I forgot to put my name on the other one. It's from Pam. I loved the singing, just listened to it. Have a Merry Christmas, glad you're with your family this year. Tschüss, Pam
