Stitches of Light and More

Crochet, plastic canvas, wreaths and more

Wreaths, coasters and eggs- Work in Progress Wednesday. And linky party?

So what do wreaths, coasters and eggs all have in common? Yarn! And they are all works in progress this week. The eggs are technically finished being stitched, but I haven’t listed them on etsy. Well one set is, but not these. Listing things is a bit of a chore to me. Chore=work. A work in progress lol.

So here they are:

As I said the eggs are all stitched.

These wreaths are waiting for glue and painted letters.

These coasters are a new pattern I just created in the last couple of days. One needs to have the edging finished, and they need a box made. I also plan to write a pattern to sell on etsy.

Then I still have to finish the lid of the Air Force coaster set. I also need to do some price labels for wreaths for this weekend’s craft show. I think I’ll be busy the rest of the week!

What are you working on this week? I would love for you to post your links. And speaking of posting links, I’ve been kicking around the thought of hosting a Thursday linky party. I have no idea what theme or anything yet. What would you like to see? Would you be willing to participate, of do you feel there are enough parties out there?

Veterans Military Yarn Wreath- Finished Friday

In the past week I’ve been working on several yarn wreaths again. Two are almost completed, but this one is all finished!

My husband serves in the military, so I like to make a lot of military and USA related items. While he is still active duty, I wanted to make this to honor all our brave veterans out there.

Navy Military Yarn Wreath- Finished Friday

 

At the end of January, I posted about my military yarn wreaths that I had started back in December. I finished the Air Force wreath around that time I believe, but somehow the Navy wreath got set aside again. When I picked it back up, I made the flowers, wrapped the wreath and got ready to assemble it. And then I realized I had a problem. The black letters I had painted were too dark to be seen on the navy blue yarn of the wreath. Dilemma! I wanted each of the military wreaths to be wrapped in a different color, but I had also wanted them to all have black letters. The Army wreath was already done in gold, so that meant it had to be wrapped in navy blue. So I ended up changing the letter color to gold. So then repainting took a bunch of time. So I finally have it finished! Here is a picture of the finished wreath:

I am so happy to finally have this done! Now I have wreaths for Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines. I hope to do a Coast Guard one eventually, as well as a military veteran one, but I think that will have to wait for now. Here is the collection of what I have. They are all available in my Etsy shop:
