how to make Hearty Links with Felted Loops . . . together with another fun visit from the Orples ♥

Well it’s been a while, since that summery September post when I first mentioned my plans to be back “soon” with this next step to making hearty garland felted loop links. Now four ( 4!!! ) months later, I do hope you think it was worth the wait… ?

Time has flown by! But where did it go?!?

It might be hibernating under the snow, although a lot of time has been spent on recent software upgrade learning curves. Oh, and that inbox of mine… Time always seems to lose track of itself when it gets together with my blogfully delightful, yet utterly inbox-icating electronic messaging centre.

Time well spent 😉

My timing might be a bit sheepish, although 2015 is the year of sheep 😉 As well, these hearty felted loopy links are created from sheep’s wool! So now, here it finally is! In time for Valentine’s Day and months ahead of the fibrously hectic Christmas projects rush… Yay!!! Click image to view enlarged PDF instructions.

Oh, and speaking of flying…

Have you met our friendly neighbourhood Orples? They popped by for a third visit to my blog, this week. So fun! Here are links to their first, second and third visits. You might want to visit them and see what all the fun is about 🙂

  1. The garlands are just too lovely, Jackie. I would love to have such garlands hanging on my book shelf. It could shows that I really love reading and the bookshelf is my favourite spot. hehe. ☺️

  2. Wow Jackie! Thank You for including us in your post. You did a great job!;) I’ve been setting up a toy store/gift shop, so am a little behind in my correspondence and visits, but I am glad I checked in prior to calling it a day. Now I can go to bed with a smile on my face. 🙂

    • Awe… and now look, there’s also a smile on my face 😀 You’re setting up a toy store/gift shop? That sounds like fun. I do know a little about being behind with the ol’ inbox… Thus my extra-thanks to you, for the Orples’ third visit and always taking time to stop by and comment 🙂 ♥ ❤
