St. Patrick's Day Wreath

Well...we're dealing with a Croupy Kat over here. Not fun. It makes me so sad when the kids are sick, and I just want to magically transfer whatever aches and pains they have to me. I'm thankful that we've really got some pretty hearty kids. Other than a few here and there's the munchkins are pretty healthy (knock on wood!). It's kind of funny, though, whenever I hear the word "croup" I immediately think of Anne of Green Gables and how she saved Minnie May Barry...ANYWAY!

So the last few days I've been doing a lot of snuggling and rocking with my Girlie. But not much craftin'. She's sleeping peacefully now, though, so I cranked this out!

Isn't it a wonderfully horrid photo of a terribly lopsided wreath?!?!

And I had such high hopes. Pooh.

As you can see...I wrapped up a foam wreath with some yarn that I inherited from my MIL. It's the variegated yarn I used to make some of my pom poms. Crazy how the wreath turned out striped! Then I made these little green rosettes out of scrap felt. I followed the directions from Our Seven Dwarfs. I also proceeded to hot glue burn my fingerprints off my thumbs. Good times. Then I hot glued (cursing all the way) the rosettes into shamrock shapes. Not noticing that they weren't exactly even. Double Pooh. IS bright and cheerful looking!

It doesn't look too bad!! Yes, I would agree with you, it is at least bright and cheery, and that's all that counts right?! :)
p.s.- thanks for dropping by my blog the other day!

Your wreath looks great! Sorry to hear you got so many hot glue burns!
