Woodland Christmas Decorations

Today I went to my attic to check the Christmas decorations.
That's what I found in a box.
Aren't these mushrooms lovely? 
I'm so excited to put them on the Christmas tree again.
Then I searched the internet for more woodland decorations
and I'm happy about what I found.



Have you been to your attic too? What did you find?
Have a wonderful early winter week.

Project: Autumn Spray

My autumn project prospered. 
But I'm not sure of how to arrange the leaves and mushrooms. 
That's only a first attempt:
 I like the dotted guinea fowl feather amongst the spray even if it's not crocheted.
 BTW this was the inspiring example:
 And I have to admit: I'm a bit addicted to 
crocheting these autumn things at the moment. 
I'm not in the mood for making Christmas decorations yet.
Have some happy hours this weekend!

My dear autumn colours

I love my dear autumn colours. And that my hair is long enough to make a sidewards braid again.
 Trying different purses with this outfit. 
The first one is from an op shop.
 The second one is crocheted by me.
 I found the inspiration in a Japanese crochet magazine here.
 The third one was a present from my mother. She bought it at a garden fair. Lovely, isn't it?
 Which one do you like best?
 Starring Julie is checking if everything is in order!
 Oh, yes, Julie, it's ok!
 Don't look at the mess behind my house. 
Better look at my collection of blue and green glass in the windows above.
 That's my outfit for a not too chilly day in autumn.
Hope there will be some more.
Have a nice week!

First attempt: crocheting pumpkins

As Halloween is not that long ago I tried to crochet pumpkins and it was so much fun and really not that difficult. I couldn't stop before I had eight. Look!
 
 
 I want to make a few more! I'm literally hooked.

But then I want to give this project a try!
 
 I hope I will be able to crochet that. It looks so nice and the best: I have a similar jacket.
Happy hooking time to me!
And maybe to you too?

Searching the internet for autumn crochet ideas

When I'm thrilled by a project I always love searching the internet for further inspiration.

I can't stop looking at the results of other people on the same project and spend hours over hours hopping from one blog to the other.

 Honestly that's a little bit dangerous because sometimes I have so many ideas in my head afterwards that I don't start to do anything.

And there are so many elaborately produced works that I think my own lame skills would never suffice to compete with any of the talented girls from blogland.

  But this time I tried hard and I'm going to show you my own crochet work in the next posts. So stay tuned.
Happy autumn crochet!
