rainy day crafting {wreaths}

i have a compulsion
and it is making things
it could be food
it could be a craft
it could be trouble
i am sharing some of my rainy day projects 
during the holidays
made an adorable marshmallow and gumdrop wreath
which i shamelessly copied for a valentine wreath
substituting conversation hearts for the gumdrops
Marshmallow Wreath
Fabric Wreath
Embroidered Gift Bag
i used a piece of linen
from the remnants pile
i wanted it to look a bit
like it had been sitting in the bottom
of a civil war widow's hope chest
it is a gift
for a yet to be born
little wonder
named Ruby
it will hold baby essentials
and then it can be easily transformed
into a small pillow


  1. These are gorgeous! You really are very talented!

  2. Christy!! I love your wreath! How cute are those conversation hearts! SO fun!

    I am working on a Reader Spotlight post right now and I am going to include your cute wreath! I will publish it this weekend!
