I have made wooly trees but never a wreath. I am in love and I don't care who knows it. (can you tell we just watched Elf lol) So easy and I dried the oranges with cloves in the oven perfect.
We are trying to find things that are safe for us to do. We headed for the speedway and drove through the gift of lights just lovely!
I have decorated outside as much as I am going to this is on our porch so not much weather gets to it.
The side lights, I had these little snowshoes and needed to show them off this year again. (I am not sure to whom as it is just us and these can not be seen from the road)
I gathered a bunch of greens and stuck them in an old cooler with kids garden tools and a bird house done!
Reminded me of when I worked for a florist.
Now for the rug. I saw this pattern, very long story short it was by an artist that wooly fox used but the copyright ran out. I could not get it.
I found out the same pattern was a cross stitch pattern that was owned by leisure arts I had nothing to lose so I emailed them asking for permission to use that pattern for rug hooking.I would make it bigger and it would be a one time use for me. They emailed back yes I could and thank you for asking. I have printed out the email as I do not want to infringe on any copyright issues and would never copy a rug without express permission. Soooo anyway I have changed it to my liking. It is a giant work in progress as you can tell from his basket (both are NO)
This is just a sample of what I have pulled out of this pattern!
I just could not make myself happy. and I am not a big outline person so I am changing that also in spots. Phew! more to come.
But my best find was my trip to the The woolen Pear/ Red Horse Rugs . This wool makes the perfect snow! It is much lighter than this picture and it gives it the right variation and not a pure white look. I have no idea what the wool is called but if you contact her tell her Cathy sent you (I need the brownie points lol) I just had her set another yard aside for me.
Well I have lots more to say but I will save it for next time I hope to post again this week I need to fit it all in.
Have a wonderful week and stay healthy!
