I always find it strange how from starting at looking at websites I spend most of my lunchtime and any time on the internet looking at blogs. As far as I am concerned, they are the best invention. Ordinary people opening up their lives so that we can look into them. I love it.
After a trip on Darby’s ‘Fly Through Our Window’ blog I saw that she had done a guest blog on the ‘Life In Grace’ blog. This opened up Edie’s 12 days of Christmas event in which she has asked friends to give projects for Christmas. I loved The Nester‘s ragamuffin garland and knew that I had to make one.
The instructions are posted in the link here and I urge you to make one. They are so easy and I am so pleased with the results. I used pink, grey, blue and cream for my colours. The pink was from a skirt which I tried on and was way too big! : ) At the bottom of the skirt was ribbon and sequins so these were cut into separate pieces as was the bright pink silk lining.
The garland is easy to make and looks wonderful. I have hung mine at my bedroom window and hung Christmas baubles underneath. I am so pleased with the results.
