Hello......... I'm stuck in bed recovering again after a busy couple of days, I wanted to say a huge thank you for all the good wishes for my hospital trip.
It was a very long day, as it's a couple of hours each way to the hospital, I had some more tests done and the Immunologist, say what's been happening is very unusual so I'll just have to wait and see if anything shows up in the tests, he also wants me to see yet another specialist a Endocrinologist this time, so that will be more appointments.
Anyway back to the wreath, where at the moment it's all about the leaves, well I guess it wouldn't be Autumn without them !!!
As well as the knitted leaves pictured about, I've also been making some Felt ones.
A friend kindly offered to Die Cut some leaves for me, so I decided on purple and
this gorgeous silvery white glittery felt (so pretty, you can never have too much sparkle !!) the felt came from my stash, so yay, so far this wreath has been completely made from my craft stash so it turning out a thrifty make.
I then hand stitched some decoration onto the leaves, using Silver sparkle and a Purple floss,
Hopefully the glitter will look like a morning frost on the leaves
As well as the leaves, I have some 'Little Lacy Stars' from Attic24. Lucy's tutorials are great and I have used a lot of her patterns on my Seasonal wreaths in the past, in fact I made these stars for my 'Wintertime Wreath' last year, but the yarn I used just wouldn't block very well.
So they never made it onto the wreath. I had in mind to make some cobwebs for my wreath as this Autumn seems to have been particularly cobwebby here at the Summerhouse.
Then the other day I found these little stars and wondered if I stretched them right out and pinned them would they look like cobwebs? I'm hoping from a distance pinned to the wreath amongst the flowers and leaves they will, well that or maybe frost?
Here's hoping anyway.
So with a last bit of knitting all my leaves are made and ready to be pinned onto the wreath. Next time Berries.........
