ambitious intentions.

14 July 2010

verna fabric wreath.

so i decided that i needed a "hand" project while we were on vaca.
i was ubber ambitious because i didn't have bindings to do.
{what?!?! NO bindings?!?! i know!!!}

my big ol' moda market bag included:
quilts for show & tell.
quilty magazines.
the makings for a fabric wreath.
& four charm packs with an acrylic hexie template.
{160 hexagons?!?! what the heck was i thinking?!?!}

so what did i actually get done???
not that much.

in my defense...
i did cut out 40 hexies.
& i had this wreath about 3/4 of the way done before we came home.
not too bad, right?!?!
{just say yes. it's good for my ego. ha.}

i finally finished the wreath yesterday.
it took me ALL day to take this pic.
darn camera. it HAS to go to geek squad.
*sigh*

but anyways...
i've only been wanting to get this wreath done since last november.
here i am 8 months later.
& it only takes few hours to make one.
can yall say SLACKER?!?!

i definitely heart this wreath.
& i'm thinking i need one for the baby's room.
wonder if i'll put it off for 8 months?!?!
:P

for those inquiring minds:
fabric = verna by kate spain for moda
pattern = fabric wreath tutorial.

Pin It!

Beautiful! I went and bought supplies for a wreath when I saw your tut in the Moda Bake Shop 8 months ago and I still haven't done it! Yes, I'm a slacker! :)

Super cute! I get how you feel it seems sometimes that it takes forever to get anything done! :)

The simplest projects are the first to be set aside because we say "oh, that wont take me long to finish so I will do it later". Then 8 months later we unbury it...lol

Uber cute! Love Verna!

Just a little something from Judy said...

This wreath is beautiful! If I feel brave, I might attempt to make it for my daughter's nursery. It would fit in perfectly with her vintage decor. Thanks for the idea.

Amazing wreath. I am inspired to make one for myself and a few friends for Christmas this year. However I am Australian and have never seen a wreath frame like the one pictured. Can you recommend on online store where I can purchase a few from please.
