Two More Laurel Wreaths


Spent some time these past two rainy days cutting out leaves for the wreaths and there are plenty of them to be cut if I carry on with this quilt.  Wanted to see how it would look with some in a row and I pretty much like it.  No flower or bird in the center of the top two for now.  The little black splotch on the bottom flower is a piece of black with tiny white polka dots that I will use to replace the solid color already there.  It's hard to see unless you enlarge it.  Plan to use a little black and white in each center object and think that would add some sparkle.  Think for now this will go back in the box until after Christmas as I have lots of things I would like to do.   It seems the older I get, the slower I get but I'm not about to complain because I'm still moving and getting the fun things done.  Housework and cooking?  Not so much!  (Click to enlarge)

I love the wreaths, they look wonderful. I agree with the house work and cooking. That is what I had to do today, and that is no fun. lol I will do a little embroidery tonight while I watch t.v.. Lots of limbs down in our yard today from last night.

These are stunning- love your choice of fabrics! Remember no one on their deathbed said I wish I had spent more time at the office or I wish I had cleaned more toilets-- so do the fun stuff first!!
