Yarn wreath

I have the craft bug. I always get it around Christmas. I just love creating things to display in my home for the holidays. After Christmas last year, I decided it was finally time to retire the worn out fake pine wreath. I wanted something a little different this year. I am really into yarn lately so, why not a yarn wreath?!?!

Advent calendar progress

As promised, I am posting an update with the progress of my advent calendar. I finished the quilting this morning. Now I need to bind it and decide how I want to hang it.

I really should have followed the advice of a friend and quilted it with straight stitches but I like a challenge. I am also a perfectionist so I am a little dissappointed with the uneven stitches. lol I need much more practice. Also, I am aware that the numbers are not in order. As I said before, I like a challenge and I like to challenge my children. I think it will be fun for them to find the correct pocket each day.

Ready to quilt

My advent calendar is ready to quilt! I am a bit nervous! I have learned one thing about quilting from this project so far. You have to be meticulous about the measurements and cutting! My poor pockets are wonky! That's okay, it doesn't look too bad for a first timer. ;-)
