Many of you who know me well,
know that my creative outlet is crafting
knitted wreaths from rescued sweaters.
I've been at it for several years now and I can't think
of anything I enjoy more.

Today I had the itch to do something creative,
so I went through the few crafting supplies that I brought
with me and found this colorful sweater.
Right before I left Johnson City
one of my friends left this sweater on my porch.
She said I could use it for something,
and today I did.
Thanks Betty Ann.

It's a very big sweater and can easily make
two or three wreaths.

Today I only used the sleeves.

I started by covering my wire frame.

Then cut some strips and made some roll-up flowers.

I have an etsy shop called Nanniepannie, but
alas, my creations do not sell as fast as I want to make them.
I've been forced to slow my creating down
due to limited space in the basement.
Such is life.

I think this one will just hang in our little kitchen.
The Christmas decorations come down soon
and we'll need a little color and whimsy.
This one makes me think of the circus
for some reason.

Thanks for stopping by.
