New Fall Wreath!



Happy Friday, girls! Here's the new Fall wreath that I made for our Fall lovin' Noelle! She got it in the mail yesterday so I can show it to you now. I'd never made a Fall wreath before so it pushed me out of my comfort zone and into a lot of fun!Because I didn't really have any Fall fabric, I used only one main fabric and then ribbon, rick rack and raffia! I love how it turned out.

And then of course a big, bad, scary scarecrow! Well, maybe not too, too, scary. ☺

I also glued some of my favorite Fall confetti all over it. Turns out that Noelle is going to use this same confetti at her wedding!

I had fun wrapping it up cute, too! I made the bow with my 25 cents a roll scarecrow ribbon! (Man I love a good deal!) I realize now that the middle piece should have been larger. Oh well. Live and learn.

Girls, my Bobby has his out patient shoulder surgery this morning (Friday) at 7:30 AM central. I'd appreciate your prayers! I had been feeling so fearful but I asked the Lord to take away my fear and cowardice and give me His faith and courage- and He did! How about that? Do you think it was a good trade? ☺
****
Love to all my girls! ♥

I'll be praying for Bobby this morning, hoping that everything goes smoothly and quickly, and for a fast recovery!
I love the Fall wreath Holly! It's so different from the usual ones you see everywhere. I could use a new wreath, so I might just try this!
Have a great weekend Holly!

You have quite the talent for the rag wreaths gal!

Hope that all goes well with Bobby...I'm working diligently at my PT sessions in order to avoid the surgeons knife, but if I have to I'm sure the Lord will see me through!

Hi Holly!
I have been praying for Bobby. I am so thankful that his surgery went well and he is on his way to recovering now. The worst is over, (the unknown and worry about the surgery), now he can start recovering.

Sweetie, I so love this wreath. It is absolutely darling. You have to tell me, is this a straw wreath, or wire form? How long were the pieces that you used? I just love it, and would so like to make one for a friend of mine. This is something that I could do. Anything goes right? Let me know. Please keep me posted on Bobby. You are both in my prayers sweetie. Country hugs, Sherry

I love the fact that you can admit you are scared. Alot of people can't do that and the fact you reached out to the Lord is the best answer in the whole wide world.
I'm humbled at your creativity making little into big. The wreath is a dandy piece of art with a whole lot of heart!

Hey Holly!
The wreath is precious...you did great on that wreath...I love the cute smiling scarecrow, and I bet Noelle loves it!
I'm so glad to hear that Bobby is doing okay, and came through the surgery well. God is so good! I know you'll take good care of him. He's got a good nurse..."you". Thanks for the heads up on the cute apron giveaway too!
Big Hugs,
