I did try hard to suppress my inner crafter so as not to step on my sister's decorating toes... but it is hard to resist! She said she wanted a fabric garland, and I offered to make a garland of scrap fabric (all the rage on Pinterest) and you know... as simple as it is... it takes forever to cut all the strips and tie them to string. I mixed bits of lace and ribbon in with the fabric for a fun effect. It was a bit meditative, once I got in the rhythm. While I was busy stringing scraps of fabric, my sister was busy making white tissue paper flower pom-poms, only about two thousand of them, to decorate the house! They looked beautiful! We hung the flowers and fabric garland above the fireplace when it seemed like it was going to rain and the ceremony would have to be inside. Turned out it was nice out, but it still looked lovely.
I also wanted to share with you the dresses and aprons I made for the girls, but I didn't get a chance to photograph them today, so that will have to be for yet another day.
It's a strange crafting feeling when a holiday or big event has ended... where to go from here? Don't get me wrong, I have plenty of things on the to-do list... it's just finding the focus that you have with a deadline and an event that really puts the fire under your feet.
