after seeing lots of lovely christmas wreaths i decided i needed one too - so i raided my vintage haberdashery stash and made this

the base is a 12" embroidery hoop wrapped in tinsel to which i've wired on scissors - a crochet hook threaded with stitch markers set to 25 / 12 / 2009 - i've tied on two tape measure rosettes , large coat buttons and a pair of long kitting needles and a ball of wool  are threaded through the tinsel, which is the only item i have bought specifically for the wreath.

Not so secret confession for you:  I have to admit I was terribly confused by this at first... At least about your title for the wreath.  Then I checked your profile and realized you were in the UK, and that the term must have two different meanings.  In the states "Haberdashery" refers to a dealer in men's furnishings, like shirts, ties, gloves & most of all men's hats.  As a costume designer and a teacher of fashion history, I've quizzed my students on that question many times, but never realized it meant something different in the UK!  I love learning little language differences between us.  Smiley  Anyways, adorable wreath!  And of course, a Happy Christmas to you!

It does not due to dwell on dreams and forget to craft.

Very clever! I particularly like the stitch counter date.

I totally thought haberdashery only referred to men's hats, too...

Gorgeous!  And very unique.  I love all the little parts of your craft included as part of your wreath.
