Wreaths and mysteries

I never thought it was such a bad little tree. It's not bad at all, really. Maybe it just needs a little love.
-- Linus Van Pelt, A Charlie Brown Christmas

Today is my guild's last meeting of the year, and our Christmas party.

I wanted to make some marshmallow Christmas wreaths ... well, it was a good idea in theory.  This is the kind of project that definitely needs a minimum of two people to pull it off!

See those little lumpy piles?  Well, they're supposed to be shaped like wreaths.  The mixture was cooling too fast and the shape just wouldn't cooperate!

See the one at the far left, second from the bottom?  That's how they all should have looked.

Nevertheless, I made two batches of em - 4-1/2 dozen!

Oh well, if eaten with the eyes closed, who's to know?

Here's my progress on part 4 of On Ringo Lake!

Have a great Saturday, stay safe, sew forth and sew on ...


  1. I'll bet they taste great anyway!

    Isn't it fun to be working with a new color in clue 4?

  2. I'm with Needled...they'll taste fine. They don't look as bad as the breakfast cookies I made and decided to add a date to the top of just before baking. I don't have to say what that looked like when it came out of the oven!
    Your Ringo Lake is coming along nicely.

  3. They're just extremely *full* wreaths, that's all!
    I haven't even gotten my strips cut for the clue 4. Hopefully I'll get down to the studio today!

  4. who cares what they look like as long as they taste good!
