Anything Goes





The lovely ladies (Von & Neet) over at Artful Times have set a theme of "Anything goes. Well last week I attended a workshop at my local Quilters shop. It was a fabulous day and Mandy Shaw of Dandelion Designs was our tutor (Lovely fun lady). We made this wonderful red work Christmas wreath. We ripped up strips of linen and tied around a coat hanger made into a circle. Then made felt stars and hearts, the designs are hand embroidered a first for me as you can probably tell by the dodgy holly leaves and robins LOL. But I am very proud of my wreath and happy with the theme so I can share it. Thanks for looking. Hugs Sandra XXX

Love your embroidery! What a fabulous idea - the sheeting tied on the wire is a brilliant idea. This will look lovely hanging in your home and would make a super gift for someone.
Thanks for joining us at Artful Times with this creation.
Hugs, Neet xx

Now that is beautiful. It reminds me of cinammon sticks and candy canes (must be the lush colours). Hugs, Buttons x
