a herald of spring
These photos were simply to show the hair wreaths and jingle bracelets that I made for the girls but I thought they turned out nearly ethereal in quality. There are no shots of K as she just wanted to run off and play or fight with C. So here is C in all her luminosity of eyes. The hair wreaths are simple - just bands of wool felt with the flowers sewed on with buttons and a bunch of ribbon falling down the back. I sewed it all very sturdily and finished it completely in hopes that it will stand up to the girls. Sarah's little girls will receive similar wreaths sometime when the US and Royal Postal services finish their tasks.
The bracelet is made from a plain wooden bracelet that I bought at JoAnn's at a deep discount. There are ribbon streamers all around that I didn't photograph and little jingle bells so that the tinkle.
