Very sweet..I'm thinking you stitched the little bird...precious. And, of course you decorated around the instruction page. YOU are so inspirational! Since I've taken your MEHC workshops...I see the value in scrapes! :)

Love the simplicity for this time of the year.....the Christmas season approaches us quickly now! Hugs, Heidi


Sweet and simple, but with that elegance that says "Charlotte."

Love the bird and the whole wreath. Gotta make one.


Love it!!!!!


I love the wreath. I love making things I can leave out all winter instead of just for the holidays. Thanks so much for sharing the how-to. I am hoping to get to the bookstore today and have Mollie's book on the list. Wishing you a beautiful rest of the week.


Did I just read that you'll soon have new things in your Etsy shop? SUPER !!! Xox. You always have the best ideas !!

This was our family craft project after dinner on Thanksgiving Day - we turned out three variations - all very cute. We used strips from a painters cloth for the first wrap and used many thrift store purchases for the rest. Thank you for sharing this!! Now I want the whole MM book...


Hello, Charlotte: Just wanted to let you know that I hosted a Mother-Daughter Craft Brunch today and we made your white wreath, with gold birdnests. Each one was a masterpiece. Thank you for your inspiration.
