Ann says to be sure to scour your local fabric store for great deals on remnants of fancy fabrics in any white, off white, cream, taupe and light browns. The more different textures the better. Ann also says that this is a good project to do with a few friends, and everyone contribute to the fabric stash.
Here is a picture tutorial to show how Ann went about making this Elegant Rag Garland.
- A string of Christmas lights, either 35 or 50 lights. Lights with white cord is preferred but green will work as well. The wire will be mostly covered. A 35 light set will give you about 11 feet of garland.

Merry Christmas everyone! We've gone from green to soft fluffy winter wonderland snow last weekend, back to green again, and today, we've had rain, snow, ice pellets, you name it! You know what they say- if you don't like the weather, wait 5 minutes! That certainly applied today!
If you are having trouble getting into the Christmas spirit because of the lack of white stuff- we have just the answer for you! We hope all our members will come to our Christmas Social on Wednesday evening this week- Dec. 8th beginning at 6:30pm. There is no charge, and nothing to bring food-wise - but we hope you'll all bring some Show and Tell items. And of course, if you have any placemats you have made for Meals on Wheels, bring them along to turn in. See you there!
