I'm just planning another workshop, My theme is Autumn and I am busy collecting lots of lovely yarn in soft autumn hues. I want to make an "Autumnal Wreath" but my challenge is how much can be achieved in a 4 hour workshop. I have been researching lots of crochet blogs for ideas and inspiration and of course Lucy is famed for her crochet flower wreaths. Some wreaths are covered with yarn wrapped around them and some have a double crochet jacket. I much prefer the ones covered with a length of double crochet. They look so much more substantial, this method of course takes a lot longer. For a 25 cm ring using a 4 mm hook and 25 stitches you need to crochet a length of 75 cm as you can imagine I am busy making prototypes.
An important message to myself is "write everything down" I have a habit of making little patterns up and then forgetting how I made them. I made a teeny tiny crochet mouse to add to my wreath but have completely forgotten how I made it!
I have found some lovely beautiful free patterns for pumpkins and acorns, but if you use them please link back to the original source. Lovely pattern for a small pumpkin here and here and an amazing acorn pattern here.
My first ever covered wreath...............
Just a few little embellishments

Before I go back to my crochet wreath I must tell you some incredible news, I had quite a surprise yesterday I was looking at my blogger stats and couldn't believe that I had reached the amazing milestone of over 100,000 hits which is unbelievable. So a great big thank you to all the people that take the time to click onto my blog.
Hope you all have an amazing weekend xxx
