Today’s post is, once again, about horses. So, please bear with me.
A few weeks ago, my friend, Donna, suggested that we get together and work on a craft project for Christmas. We really didn’t make any plans, and I forgot about our conversation…..until someone posted a picture on my Facebook page of a Christmas wreath they thought would appeal to me.
Donna and I began our crafting day early last Saturday morning. We started with three purchased wire frames and a frasier fir tree.
We toiled nearly all day, snipping branches and tying bunches of fir to the forms. Finally, Motor Man dragged us away for a quick lunch break. By late afternoon, we were finished. These were our creations:
I won’t say who’s responsible for this next photo – other than: it wasn’t Donna nor me. Oh, and I will mention that Motor Man was our photographer.
Here is that poor fir tree after we finished gathering our greens.
In addition to making one for each of us, we also made a third wreath. This one was for sweet Aggie.
Motor Man and I drove to her pasture Sunday afternoon and placed it on a fence post in front of her barn.
The wreaths weren’t particularly difficult to make (although we had our doubts when we first began). They were time-consuming, but it was a fun day, with Motor Man lending a hand when needed, and Christmas music playing on the radio.
