Advent calendar challenge: day 4

4.12.10 - 21:08

Today's inspiration is Christmas wreaths - I'd like to make one of these, but I have no idea how I'd attach it to my uPVC front door. So here is my tiny tribute to Christmas greenery.

I nabbed this way of making a wreath from Whipstitch, though I've bulked it up a bit by using two rows of plaits and twisting them together. I was going to add some little red berries but I like the texture as it is.

This is a pretty rubbish picture of it - but here is the fabric I'm going to use as the background for my calendar. I've had it for so long I'd totally forgotten about it but I found it right at the bottom of my fabric box. Apparently I bought it in 2008!
