That's pretty but I'll be away for Christmas. I have so many things pinned on Pinterest but I just pin them and never
Do any of the things except for a few recipes.
That wreath turned out beautiful, @Honey Gee ! I watched all of the directions, and decided that I should start out with a smallish one until I am sure that I get the drift of making them.
I watched the directions a couple more times, and then tried making my own little wreath.
So, it came out really tiny, but it was good........ what do you think ?
I feel really pleased it's worked for you @Yvonne Smith. Looks like a doughnut though. Is that what is supposed to be x Hope I have not offended you x Its nice though.
Very nice...and she makes it look so easy.....but I'm the most cackhanded person when it comes to crafts..that would take me a week to do...
That was exactly what my thoughts were after watching that tutorial video, @Holly Saunders . I looked at how easily they put this and that on the wreath base, and the next thing it was all beautiful, and I thought to myself.........mine would NEVER come out looking like that.
I actually looked for bad wreaths to post a picture of and didn't find any, so then I got the doughnut idea, and it looked like just what I wanted to post for this thread.
The wreath turned out lovely. I make several wreaths every year and give them away as gifts to family members before Christmas. I believe I've covered everyone so far because my stash has dwindled down to about four (2 grapevine and 2 evergreen).
Von...I thought when I saw this first.. the one person I know on here who would be able to do this would be you.... I know you're very good at crafts..
Thank you @Holly Saunders. I do enjoy crafting. Every time I see decorations in stores I always think how I would change it not because I don't like it but just because I see something called 'Von's touch'.
I wish I had your talent @Von Jones but I'm the polar opposite when it comes to anything to do with crafts..I have no imagination whatsoever, which I think is my sticking point..
@Holly Saunders you just excel in other areas.
I love craft. I paint glasses, make jewellery, latch and lock hook. I am not particularly good a drawing but can disguise things.
@Yvonne Smith before you ask for a photo most go to charity.x
I enjoy crafts, too, @Honey Gee ; but some of those craft ideas that we see on the internet are just out of my abilities for doing them, especially now. I mostly just stick with easy things, knitting socks (yes, @Ina I. Wonder , I am going to start your pair of socks really soon now, I promise), crocheting, and sometimes painting things to make them look better.
I used to do beadwork, and made patterned hatbands for my cowboy hats, and always wanted to learn to make those beautiful dangly beaded earring sets, but my eyes just say NO to that kind of stuff anymore. I stil have embroidery floss that I bought and haven't used, but keep thinking that i will get to it one of these days.
What do you make and give to charity, Honey ? I have seen where people crochet hats and scarves for the homeless, or blankets from the plastic grocery bags, but it sounds like you are donating jewelry and painted items ? ?
Anything and everything Yvonne if we can sell it for abused cats and dogs on the island we do. We generally ask our local retailers to donate old wool to make blankets, dolls,. Don't go there with socks I am not a good knitter but the lovely tourists will buy stuff as they know it goes to charity.
Some jewellery I made
