I've finally gotten some fall decorations made and up! Yesterday I went out and collected some freshly fallen leaves (not dry and crackly ones). Then I brought them inside and dried them off (it's a wee bit wet around here), and got to work.
Well, it wasn't really work. I just took some crochet thread (I love that stuff...so useful!), threaded it through a big needle, and started stringing leaves together. Voila! I have a lovely garland of leaves, which is now hanging in my office!
They'll dry out, and I know that when I take them down I'll need to be careful so as not to get leaf bits all over. But for now they'll just stay in place and be wonderful.
Go out and enjoy some autumn...and have fun making!
