Autumn wreaths (Take 2)14:25:00
After accidentally deleting this post last week and going into a 'Blogger bloody hell, can't find my post' panic, I am pleased to say that calm has been restored. After endless 'how to' google searches, history searches in my browser and upon learning the term cache, the kids finally fell asleep and with no distractions I located this post in its editing stage and was able to bring it back from the brink. Thanks to those who tried to help me locate it too.
Could I have lived without this post in my archive? Yes, definitely. However I have plans for this post as a connector to a Part 2 in December. What planning! This said next post in December just wouldn't flow on if you get my drift. So do stay awhile and be mightily impressed by our wreath making prowess.....Take two.
...................................Autumn is such a lovely time. Have I already mentioned that? The chill in the air, the frosty mornings, the last rays of warm sunshine in the late afternoon, getting to wear woolly scarves and my boots again. Not to mention the glorious colours and even all the messy fallen leaves. Its not going to last long either so I have been making the most of it and soaking it all up which brings me to this post today.
My wreath making talents are now fairly polished after my efforts last year if you may recall. It was so much fun having a go at it and it was super easy to do. So I thought, this would be so much more fun sharing the time again with some friends. Nothing like a gathering of sorts for some chatter, good gossip, coffee, cake and all those rewarding intrinsic happy feelings that coincide with making stuff. Pretty stuff at that.
I love any sort of social gathering as some will well and truely know and Wednesday was perfect. We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful autumn morning. The sun was shining, all the children, all ten of the little darlings played like all sweet good children should and we got to work.
Now the thought did cross my mind to do a 'How To' along with this post, but I actually happened to give a few tip last time which you can see here. It really is as simple as making a circle shape to your preferred size, and then wrapping and wrapping the vines, round and around until you are happy with your desired shape. Pinterest is also a minefield of ideas and Im sure you will find myriads of tips and tutorials for you to explore to help you on your wreath making way.
I think I can confidently say that all participants were extremely happy with their wreath making efforts. I was very happy to host as I really do love spending time with these girls. They truly have become very good friends. I think we can all look forward to the end of the year when we can get our 'craft on' together once more and decorate them for Christmas. They make super front door decorations. (Pending pregnancies, I think next time a little Champagne might be on the 'bring a plate to share' menu.)
Have you had a go at wreath making before?
You really should get together with friends like this some day. It really is fun. Good for the soul.
Thanks for visiting today
