OK, this is not quilting, but it is at least crafty. I also lost a good deal of finger skin on this project,
so I am really feeling the need to show off my new denim rag wreath.
It all began when I was in the basement and saw an old metal wreath form that I have had for years. My many mornings of Pinterest surfing caused a sudden urge to make a denim rag wreath.
We quilters have a ginormous stash of fabric, so it only took a few extra steps in the basement for me to get an arm load of old denim jean fabric to begin the project. My eye spotted an old flannel bed sheet that I no longer use. Since all denim would be too dull for me, I grabbed the coordinating sheet . I cut everything into 7 to 9-inch strips (I found 9-inch to work best) and
began to tie them to the wire wreath frame.
I tied and I tied and I tied and I tied....I was not too impressed at this stage:
This is not a quick project.
You can expect to tie for at least three hours. After about two hours, I realized my finger skin was gone, so I stopped. I tried to use Bandaids to continue
but it still hurt, so I put everything in a basket and waited a week. During that time, I decided all blue was slightly too dull for me.
Containers Beginning to Bloom - I am really loving this Celosia 'Intenz'. Eagerly waiting for the canna lilies and yellow calla lilies that are also in the 1/2 whiskey barrel to bloom. ...
