Caturday Quickie: Wreath Update

Hello, dearies!

Just a quick post on a dreary Saturday.  A couple weeks ago, before my trip to Alaska, I decided my feather wreaths needed a seasonal update.

This is, of course, the very same wreath that is pictured here:

I removed the blue flowers (made super easy by just pinning the flowers onto the styrofoam wreath form), made some new ones using the same technique, and voila!  A wreath that looks more fall than summer.

A few close-ups of the new flowers.  In addition to some quilting weight cotton prints, a shimmery satin, my chocolate and ivory zebra fabric, and some velvet, I tested tissue paper in the flowers.

Again, most of these are from the scrap pile.

I'll be updating some more of my feather wreaths around the house in the upcoming weeks, but here's a last shot of the wilder, more autumny wreath (is autumny a word?).

And since it's Caturday, Lancelot says hi from amidst his counter surfing.
