The Frist Day of Autumn



Hello as it's Mabon today, (the Autumn Equinox) I spent some time this afternoon, changing over my Seasonal wreath.


 Un pinning Summer


ready to for the lovely berry tones of Autumn


I'm so glad I had the light bulb moment of using my tray table for this, as it can be  tilted up to be used as a book rest so I was able to arrange most of the wreath from bed, making the whole task easier, it would have been very tricky on crutches.

So here's how I pin my wreaths first up I tend to take everything off from the previous season even though some of the the crocheted flower will be carried over into Autumn, it just makes it easier to start from scratch each time.


I then lay everything out by type so I can see what I have to work with, aww little hedgie's looking a bit sleepy as he's been hibernating since I made him back in the Summer 'here'


Now we get to the fun bit, the decorating I tend to start at the top and work my way down both side and around the wreath.


Adding the beads to the pins as I go then at the end I added in the berries and cute toadstool, (making there first appearance on the Autumn wreath)

Here's the top of the wreath


The lower right side


and of course lovely little hedgie, who hanging out with the beady blackberries


You read more about how I made the blackberries 'here'



Ta-Dah

Wishing you all a warm and cosy Autumn or a lovely sunny Spring depending on the corner of the world you live in.
Happy Crafting
