I confess, I love autumn. And I love this week of autumn best of all. With my typical artist-narcissism, I am convinced the colors are just for me! So, in wishing myself a special bon anniversaire, here are some lovely fall pretties for you, and two tried and true FREE patterns. ❤
Last week's gorgeous fall bouquet from a special banquet at our church. Didn't my friend do a lovely job? My table felt dressy all week long!
And a treasure of a surprise from another dear friend, who knows how I dearly love pumpkins! I consider them my personal vegetable, since this time of year brings them out in spades (to celebrate my personal holiday, of course? 🙂 )
Handblown by a local artisan…a gift I will cherish for a lifetime.
Now onto crochet!
As I have mentioned just once or twice before…I can be a bit particular about patterns…here are two I LOVE for their quality and simplicity.
The Maple Leaf by Redheart
I am working on a special project for a friend, and needed leaves…in pink camo 🙂
In addition to the written pattern, I believe there is also a YouTube tutorial for this one.
Love The Crochet Crowd!
And for a basic leaf…I couldn’t believe how hard this was to find…I tested dozens of free patterns and settled on this one as my favorite:
I look forward to sharing pictures of the completed afghan eventually…after stitching and gifting!
So there you are, my two favorites for clarity of design and simplicity of instruction!
And a few more photo treats…
My favorite fall pretty, our litle copper pumpkin.
My comical candy corn… ha ha!
And my gorgeous fall tree friend, just across the way. I look forward to this stunning show every autumn! She is the first to turn and burn glorius color, and the prettiest tree on our street.
I had a little fun with the editing tools there…still learning to use those!
Happy, happy harvest!
