Hello and Welcome to any new visitors to my blog. I am Karen - a Mum to five special kiddos and Wife to one special Hubby. My life is about Family and Quilts! I design quilts, I make quilts, I work in a patchwork shop. And knit and crochet in the time left after blogging about all my quilting adventures!
I have recently discovered the joys of working with felt - it is easy to cut into lovely shapes, it doesn't fray and working with raw edges is a dream! As well as making xmas gifts for my Family (I like for everyone to have one handmade item) I wanted to make something xmassie for the house. Since time is a little scarce (and I always have more ideas for projects than I could possibly make - sound familiar anyone?!?!?) I restrained myself and decided to make a felt xmas star garland. Very simple - felt cut into stars (two for each completed star) and buttonhole stitched (by hand) together with a piece of very thin ric rac 'threaded' through.
I am very happy with the way it has all come together and very pleased to be able to say Thank Goodness It Is Finished!
Until next time, happy quilting, knitting, sewing, crafting ....
