Extra! Extra!

For those of you that attended Silver Bella last year, we were all delightfully aware that Country Living magazine was in the house. Editors Monica Michael Willis and Frances Bailey were on hand soaking up all the glittery Bella vibes. We all knew that an article was going to be written sometime in fall of 2008 and it has all come to fuition. I opened up my mail box today to find the Nov. issue and tore through it looking for the article. It begins on page 80 and is called Sisterhood of Crafts. It's a fun article with several pictures of our fellow Bellas including Megan and Jennifer. Go online HERE to see them and more!! How exciting for Teresa and all the Bellas!!
Speaking of a sisterhood of crafty ladies. I invited some girlfriends over this weekend to sit down to warm wild rice soup, chit chat and making some Katie Runnels inspired yarn wreaths of our own.

A fun way to spend a cozy, rainy Sunday afternoon.

You get your Country Living before anyone else I know! It inspires me to rush to my mailbox...but you get yours first! Darn! I would so be all over coming to work on a wreath - Katie Runnels wreaths are too cute.

I will have to buy that mag for sure! ( I always do anyway! lol)
I love Katie's wreaths! I bet it was fun to make your own versions! I hope you have a fantastic night!! hugs! Britt :-)

I wonder if it would be feasible to do this with a square wreath? I adore the look and have an old square wreath form laying around.

Would like to invite you to try RED. It's a great cause and it would be wonderful to add you to the list...There are some amazing artists signed up.

Hi Kari!
Love your tablescape! How many skeins of yarn in a wreath?
