Wreath-Making Party Time

I've been working pretty hard around the house trying to spruce things up before the wreath-making party on November 30th and December 1st.

I got Carlton to install a new bathtub for me with new subway tiles all around.  That is very exciting. I haven't wanted to admit it, but I had layers and layers of plastic and duct tape around my shower and bathtub for about 2 years that I just tolerated until now. I felt like I had to finish John's house before I could do more stuff on my house. Pictures in another post.

I haven't made my invitations for the wreath-making party yet because I keep debating on what to do. I've got to get those done this weekend.

I thought I would show you a pom pom wreath I finished last year. Jo Ann gave me a great red ornament last week that really goes well with the wreath. If you should decide to make a pom pom wreath, just be aware that you are going to need LOTS and LOTS of pom poms. I'm pretty sure that's over 60 pom poms.

I hope you are having a lovely fall. It remains stunningly beautiful here.


  1. That wreath is beautiful! I love the red heart ornament!

  2. Jo Ann gave me the ornament when we were in Houston.

    Everyone I have shown the quilt photos from Houston to is stunned by how beautiful they are.

    When I told people I was going to a quilt festival in Houston for Halloween I think they thought I was crazy, but when I told them what a good time I had and then they saw the photos, I think they understood why we went.

  3. About the pom pom wreath - the iPhone photo kind of washes out the color, the colors are a little darker and richer in real life.
