Happy Autumn to you all!!! Well, officially Autumn is still a couple of days away but it has felt like Autumn for the last couple of weeks.
During my Summer break from Blogging I did a wee bit of stitching specifically for My 4th Year Blogging Celebration Give-Away. I hope I have created gifts everyone would be happy to add to their collections of goodies.
This past Spring I took my first crochet class and I have build on my skills allot during the Summer months. I have truly enjoyed the art of crocheting so I decided to created two crocheted gifts for the give-away and one of them I felted.
Here is a photo of all the gifts I created this Summer for My Give-Away. Below I will highlight each gift.
I crocheted this Wee Autumn Basket made from a wool blend yarn in an array of Autumn colors of Tangerine, Golds, Greens and Beige. It felted up only about 25% because it was not 100% wool.
It will be gift # 4 in the give-away.
I even added some acorns to this photo from our numerous Oak Trees to put you all in the Autumn mood. They started falling early this year and The Farmer Almanac tells us that we are going to have an earlier harsh and long Winter. Very Sad Face.
This gift is a crochet Cupcake Pincushion. I made it from 100% Organic Cotton yarn. The frosting yarn is called Almond and the bottom yarn is called Spice. I think they are both lovely colors for celebrating Autumn. I even added some Autumn color beads for sprinkle on the Icing to make it sparkle. I also added a wee spice swirl for the top. It is about 2 3/4 inches wide and 4 inches tall. Isn't it a very sweet looking Pincushion?
The Cupcake Pincushion will be gift # 3 to give-away.
The above photo is a Biscornu Autumn Pincushion. It is the very first Biscornu Pincushion I have ever made and it is of my own Autumn design too. I believe Pumpkins and Sunflowers are definitely Autumn Icons. It is created from 100% Wools and is approximately 8 inches wide and 2 inches tall.
The Biscornu Pincushion will be # 2 gift to give away.
The above photo is a Crazy Patchwork Autumn Heart. I added a Autumn silkie that has two fairies and a lovely Butterfly in the center. I have added lots of beads and fancy stitching to it. The hanger is made from a lovely Lime Green medium size rick rack. I also added a stitchery of Lavender to it because it is filled with stuffing and "Lavender" from My Michigan Garden. It "Smells Heavenly". It is approximately 7 X 7 inches.
The Crazy Patchwork Heart will be the # 1 prize in the give-away.
All the gifts are "Hand Made With Love!!
