Birthday Banner in Progress

I really got myself into something here. I had this great idea to make a rainbow-colored, yarn-wrapped “Happy Birthday!” banner. It’s going to be great, but I’ve been working for a few hours and I’ve only finished two and a half letters. Here’s a little peek:

I’m off to continue working.

    Good luck! I tried to do just one letter (thanks to the Design Sponge idea) and gave up after being unable to navigate the corners of my letters. I blame my font! ;D

    I’m sure it will be worth the effort… All your pretty projects are!

    That’s ambitious! I made a yarn covered heart outline (probably about 15 inches or so wide) that took a few hours to complete. I can’t imagine doing an entire banner!!

    Oh my gosh, you are very brave to take that on. I did a heart shaped wreath for our door for the month of Feb. As seen here….

    And, although it went along fairly quickly I soon realized it was a lot more wrapping than I had originally envisioned. I like how it came out, though, and feel it was worth it. So, I am sure you will too. Can’t wait to see it!

    Just hang in there even when you think the arthritis has kicked in. ;o)
