Advent Calendar – Day Five

We’ve just taken down the display for the Angels and Light Festival so  I’m revisiting something I made for the last church Festival three years ago for today’s Advent Calendar make.   This where blogging comes into it’s own, being able to look back on previous occasions!  Our Knit and Stitch Group  had  the font to decorate on that occasion too.

The theme on that occasion was a Crib and Wreath Festival and so we decided to encircle the Font as the wreath element with the crib, beautifully knitted by one of the group, sitting on the top.  It was rather a challenge, but the design I came up with was for something to which we could all contribute various elements, and could then be split up to be sold in aid of church funds.

Oh for more time!  I’d like to try it with wire threaded through to bend it into a wreath which could be spectacular, or just with multicoloured scraps which would have a lovely homespun look.

What would you do?

Back tomorrow…!
