I just got home from hanging out with my 2 year old grandson.  Mommy and Daddy took a much needed trip to Tahoe, so I got to have me some Dominick time!  Last night he looked so sad when it was his bedtime, his bottom lip was quivering and he kept asking me if I was going to come get him when he woke up.  So maw decided that the two of us were going to camp out for the night on the couch.  He was one happy camper!!  I'm sure mommy and daddy will want to shoot me later tonight when he wants to camp out again.  But us maw's get to spoil them that way.  So now about my project that I started Friday night and finished up last night with Dominick's help.  Jessica from LIVING THE SWELL LIFE posted a rag wreath she had made and I just had to try one for myself.  It was really easy to make and I have already started another one.  Jessica used ribbon to hang hers, I decided to tie a few of the rag strips together to hang mine and I love the look.

what I used.......................................
**wire that I purchased at the hardware store - maybe a little heavier than a wire hanger - I cut it approx. 40" and formed a circle, I did not double wrap it and its plenty sturdy
**fabric torn into 1" x 8" strips
**a little ribbon, a little netting and few strips of ric-rac
**and a little birdie from my Christmas stash
