Motif 4: Christmas Berry Wreath

It is finished with 20 minutes to spare before the last day of school let out.  Talk about getting a gift in under the wire!

It started out like this, with weeks to spare (as it usually does).

And here is the finished wreath.

This will count as Motif #4 in my 25 Motif Challenge.  Hurray!

Very nicely tatted, Miranda left me a comment when I posted this wreath last week that she had done it in white with red berries, I tried green with white berries for a change, I have posted the White one on my blog Christmas Day, with red berries.
I also agree get the pattern while you can, who knows how long this will be available

Ah, but you did get it done so all is good! :-) I know the feeling. I think I've got plenty of time and suddenly I don't!
Hope you had a wonderful Christmas.

I love that wreath. The only thing that bothered me was the feeling that I was wasting red thread--since so much of it is hidden.
Happy New Year!

StringyDogs, have you considered adding small red beads instead of the Josephine Rings?

If you add them in as you go (since they are located at joining spots, why not?) you wouldn't even have to pre-string them.

IsDihara said...

Um, actually now that I look at the pattern again, I think the outer row of "berries" would require pre-strung beads! And they would need to be strung on the thread that is the core thread for your chains...shuttle one (double check that logic)
