I'm in the Sunday Paper!

Evening,

Very excited today to be in the Irish newspaper, the Sunday Independent alongside my hubby, talking about life, family and my business. I'm very grateful and thankful to them! I've been reading this paper every Sunday for as long as I can remember, its Family tradition so its absolutely amazing to be featured.


A little closer up!


Hope you have a wonderful Sunday!

Fabric Wreath, what to do with little fabric scraps

Hello,

Back to work full of enthusiasm this week, there's nothing like the New Year for a little kick-start! I decided at Christmas time I wanted to make something to add to our family's stock of Christmas decorations. Every year I make a few more to add to the tree but this time I wanted to try something different. And I had all these little scraps of Christmas fabrics leftover from making dresses which were too small to do too much with. I happened upon a picture of a fabric wreath and decision was made!
These pictures are my inspiration, you can find all the links at www.pinterest.com/lollipopsday


How pretty is this, I love the fullness of this pink one.

Gorgeous greens, and love the door colour too!

Another pretty mix of spring colours

Lovely and full
Christmassy!

So inspiration, check. Then I just so happened to be in Rathwood, a local store here in Co. Carlow and sitting in the clearance section for Euro5 was this perfect base for my wreath.

I've started to add some fabric and I think I may have picked a pretty hard one to fill but not to worry it will look fabulous in the end (I hope!). I'll keep you posted,
Have a great week,
Maria
