Having 'Love'-ly thoughts...

Wow...time does fly, doesn't it? I cannot believe that it is already the last day of January! And, it doesn't help that I'm already casting my eyes forward towards February, hoping and wishing that it would zoom by so that March can come knocking with the promise of a long awaited holiday to South Africa! I must, in all the excitement, remember one thing: 'Not to count the days, but to make the days count.' I am a little ahead of myself in some ways, and I'm already thinking romantic Valentine thoughts! Well, that is in the crafty sense! I spent yesterday evening making a new wreath to celebrate the month of love. Did you see last year's Valentine quickie?

I decided to put a little more effort in this year, and took to needle and thread for a romantic take on 'granny chic'!

I re-used the base from last year's, which was simply a polystyrene wreath base covered in a pair of stripy socks! I wrapped some wool around it to give a little texture. I then added a bow made from felt, some doilies, and a few felt roses, made from scraps of left-over felt. I'm very pleased with how it turned out.

So, I'm thinking 'love'-ly thoughts right now...

I hope you're days are filled with love too!
