Well, I've tried them out in the right colours - oh boy have I tried them out
You see, every December our Embroidery Circle goes out for a Christmas lunch, and we usually exchange Christmas cards. Wouldn't it be nice, I thought, to take a little ornament for everyone? And wouldn't this little wreath be just the thing? After all, I'd only need eleven.
That was yesterday late afternoon. The Christmas lunch was today. (and very nice it was too)
So last night after dinner (8pm) I set out to crochet eleven wreath bases; I used the two greens I ordered not too long ago, a soft 4-ply:
Then this morning I set out to decorate them with red running stitch and beads. This would have been a lot quicker if I had decided on one simple decoration and done them all like that, but I thought it would be much nicer if they were all different, so had a rummage through my stash and here they are, all different (even if only a little in some cases):
Not all the bling shows up very well, so here is one with star sequins shown at an angle:
Anyway, they were much appreciated
