“JOY” full day….Week 1 of the CAL!

...tis' the season to be jolly!

When Kathleen Gedeon, owner of Yarn of Eden, asked me if I'd be interested in designing an item for a CAL I was more than excited! First, what an honor and opportunity! Then, the creative visions danced in my head! Lastly, reality hit...I'm going to have deadlines (an area needing much attention)! So, with honor, joy and organization skills to learn...I'm jolly to release week 1's pattern...

***Poinsettias with Vines and Branches PDF***

and week 1's video tutorial(s) to assist if needed.

***Part 1 The Small Poinsettia here ***

*** Part 2 Vines, Branches and Assembly here***

The project that is planned is a winter themed decoration (to be hung on the mantle with care...hint). It is a 14 week project (one part of the pattern is to be released once a week for 14 weeks.

There are a couple places you can go to connect with others participating in this CAL. First,  a group page on Ravelry , currently there are 38 members. There is, also, a Facebook Group page. You can; ask questions and make comments, share your progress and check out the progress of others at both locations.
