Another version

Are you feeling like you might be stuck on candy cane lane?
The candy canes I posted the other day were small ornament size. They were made by wrapping fabric strips around those plastic candy canes that Dollar Tree sells.

Today's cane is the larger size, roughly 25 inches high.

Instead of just wrapping the cane in fabric strips I did this one a little different. I cut a 1" strip of warm and natural batting and wrapped it around  in a single layer without overlapping but completely covering the cane. Then I took a strip of homespun fabric and added the stripe to the candy cane.
I also dressed this one up a bit with some extras. The snowflake came in a pack of 6 at Dollar Tree and I almost didn't buy them because I thought maybe they might look a little too chincy. Now I wish I would have picked up some more because I ended up really liking them and they worked well on those stick snowflakes I made too.

Although it seems like I've been very busy crafting, I really haven't been. I've been doing a lot of kicking back and relaxing in the evenings and enjoying every minute of it.I do have some more projects to show though if I ever get around to taking pictures

I hope Duke leaves a "present" on your side of the bed for this!

I think candy cane must be what we call 'rock' here in England. We can be quite boring. No imagination at all.
