Home made wreaths

I know you have seen posts on Mari and Cheri's blogs but I just have to show you a few more pictures of the annual event.



This year was the first year my sister (Carol) joined us, it was her first attempt at wreath making and she did very well, except she managed to slice her thumb with the her brand new pruning clippers which were extremely sharp..She finished two wreaths and went home to eat as she had made previous arrangements for dinner then went to the med center to get four stitches to close the gash in her thumb.


This is her very first wreath and she did a great job, it was a huge one that she made it for a friend to put on a grave site.

Here you can see her thumb all patched up, good thing we have a nurse in the family... We made a total of four wreaths one for our parents grave, one for our sister-in-laws grave and one for my door, and one for Carol's friend.. Nothing gets in the way of wreath making night!!!

Your wreaths turned out great.
4 stitches!!!! Wow- I know you said it was bad- I didn't know it was that bad though- glad she got her wreaths done anyway!

That Carol is a trooper. I don't know if I could have finished those big wreaths with that gash in my hand!

I'd call that stick-to-a-tiveness!!! Is that a word? Is in my book!! Great job.
