A Big thanks to all who have been patient with me, and my non posting! Ughh!! Seriously...It's making me crazy, but I just have to hold on a little longer...
Anyhoo, (as usual when school starts) I have been crazy busy. Time has been flying by. I can't believe fall is just around the corner. That makes me really, really, really happy! It's my favorite time of the year, and it's pages are full of my favorite colors!! REDS, ORANGES, and even a little GREEN!
Usually, my fall wreath is orange/red, but this year i went the olive green route. I wanted the wreath to match my new beautiful porch bench pillows, so I used the extra fabric to make a couple of the fabric rosettes. My mother-n-law had given me some burlap, two slightly different shades of khaki (one being alllllmost a greenish color), so I used it for rosettes, also. Of course, I thought I would need a small pop of red, so my final rosettes were made with a pattern that had red/orange in it. (Kind of hard to tell in these pics.) Once I made the rosettes and hot glued them onto the wreath (4.99 at Michael's) it seemed like something was missing. I just happened to have purchased some "Autumn Hydrangea" blooms for another project, and they just happen to match my wreath perfectly! YAY! NOW, the wreath was complete.
Trying to get back on track- :)
