Handcrafting

This is Gloria here, writing my first post.  I’ve been making wreaths lately and am surprised at how satisfying it is.  I love it!  Earlier in the fall, I wove some sweet potato and morning glory vines into wreath shapes and have incorporated materials from our yard into my creations.  This morning, however, I took a class on wreath-making at the Botanical Center so I could find out how to really do it. It was a great class and now I know how to use those wire forms as the base.  The greenery is an abundance of Eastern Red Cedar, boxwood, and white pine.  I decorated with a pine cone, nuts, dried apples, locust pod and sweet gum balls. Working with my hands is good for the soul.
