200 circles

A few weeks back I got a bee in my bonnet to make the New Year's Day Garland as featured on the Purl Bee.
This is the first time I've made one with wool felt and the bright colors were a lot of fun to use. I also really enjoyed cutting all the circles (200) as I was sick at the time and it required the right amount of brain power.

It's really long at 11 feet so it can be draped back and forth across a room.

I have enjoyed making garlands for about 5 years now and make all different kinds using various materials- paper, wool and lace trims, cotton, pom poms and thread spools, vintage bits and bobs. Honestly, I don't think I'll ever tire of them. It makes the everyday a little celebration.

200 cut circles sounds relaxing to me as well. i love mindless, meditative acts that still allow me to feel productive and accomplished at the end.
and all of that color just looks so happy!
