I heart Crochet

I've really enjoyed making my wreaths for Christmas so thought I'd try a different shape. I bought some hearts, did some crochet, added some ribbon and a tiny bell.



 It's smaller than my circular wreaths, but still a nice size to hang on the wall on as a decoration.



 Wonder what other shapes I can crochet around...  maybe I'm a yarn bomber in the making... no, too cold out there!

When I was tidying up my craft storage area (aka the dining room) I came across some sweet bird fabric. I'm not sure what the original plan for it was, if any, but thought it would look cute as part of a little owl.



They are rather sweet little birds aren't they. I thought they would be a bit overpowering on the front though, so used it for the back and the wings.






I have a basket with lots of felt pieces that need some attention, so I think I may spend this evening sewing something feltie!

Take care

  3. Your wreath is so sweet! I love the way it came out. And the owl is adorable, isn't it fun to work with felt? I find it makes every project look more whimsical and homier.

  11. A lovely post with cheery colours and happy projects! The heart is so cute...I'd yarn bomb, too, if it weren't so cold...maybe some indoor yarn bombing, like in a supermarket or the library? ;-) Chrissie x

  12. Your heart wreath is so lovely Cheryl, I really like it and think it's very appropriate for any time of year, and your little owl is absolutely adorable - I want one, or more, of those - you have inspired me but now I have to make time somehow, and everything seems to be taking so long to do and everything getting more behind! Ooooooops! We're all in the same boat aren't we? Have a lovely day, Joy x

  16. Hello lovely Cheryl. Firstly thank you so much for my book, I was so chuffed when it came through the post and apologies for not getting this message sooner. Last week was a bit of a write off for me. I love the book and can't wait to make a few things from it. Your little heart is gorgeous and it makes a really lovely wreath, well done. I also have some of that gorgeous owl print fabric in my stash and I love what you have done with yours, it is really sweet! I hope you have a good week and a good advent xoxo
