Always love your pictures especially the ones featuring your retro blue tray just like the one my daughter and I found at a boot fair!


I'm a summer girl and mourn the passing of it in to autumn, but I have to confess that I do love all the changing colours. It's the dull, drizzly days I'm not so keen on which make those beautiful leaves in to a mushy mess. I think your Autumn Wreath is a great idea, a taste of autumn which won't deteriorate with the weather.


beautiful ... there were some gorgeous colours in Aireville Park three weeks ago with the onset of Autumn .... can't wait for the patterns and will then be having a go at the Autumnul wreath xx Love Joy xx


Oh, can't wait to see how it turns out! What a lovely idea! :)

Dear Lucy,
I LOVE how much colour you bring into my life and to so many others!!


Such beautiful colors.....and a great idea crocheting the leaves as well....inspiring! Thanks!

Hi Lucy what a gorgeous post - loved it. Autumn is my most favourite time of the year, the colours are just divine. My crochet is still at baby steps but I would love to have a go at a wreath and am going to try and follow your wonderful tutorials Lucy and have a go. You have a wonderful weekend, thanks as always for great posts, always love reading your blog.
Big hugs


This is so sweet. I'm a knitter but I appreciate all things wool and one day will learn the art of crochet. Thank you for sharing you are a beautiful inspiration xx


Gorgeous, Gorgeous, Gorgeous pictures! I absolutely love fall and all the colors (living in the Northeast in the US - how could I not?) and just did a crafty, glue-y project with leaves and acorn "hats" with my two doodlebugs the other day. Can't wait to see the autumn wreath.

Brilliant! Nothing like a new project to gladden the soul xx


Your interpretation of the autumn leaves is just spot on....I don't think I've seen a better representation of the colour, ever.
Lovely post!


My favourite time of the year too - I've been busy knitting and crocheting acorns and pumpkins and have found some great patterns. If you click onto my acorn post you can get the pattern details. Hope you have a fun family weekend x


I have the same book although I don't crochet! I am looking forward to seeing what your wreath will look like!AriadnefromGreece!


adoro i tuoi post Lucy!
e i tuoi lavori sono meravigliosi!
Buon week end!

That looks lovely! What inspirational tones, and a break from the norm!


I also love the Autumn! I always come home from a dog walk with a little something in my pocket ....acorn's,twig's,leaves,feathers...just things that catch my eye. Lovely idea for an Autumn wreath...I'm still trying to make a start on your bower bird ring Lucy..Lovely blog I'm now heading out to get a few more things for my pocket collection x

Luvly juvly leafy delishousness of my favourite autumn colours. I'm so looking forward to seeing your Autumn wreath develop. Blessings, Trills


Awww Lucy, you've got me in a muddle now!
I too have a 'nature table' following walks with my 2 year old granddaughter this week (she loves finding acorns and particularly likes their little 'hats'!)but I'm making your holly leaves and mistletoe from that same book to demonstrate to my hooky class on Monday. They want to make what I'm calling a 'festive' wreath (too soon to mention that other word relating to Santa!) and just when I think I'm all organised, you pop up and remind us it's only autumn! As we see your creation come to fruition, there is no doubt that this will bring on what you, yourself would describe as an attack of the 'wanties' - so I won't know what season it is!! A gentle reminder may come in the form of a bunch of Chinese lanterns/physalis(?) I treated myself to yesterday :) - then I'd better go & crochet an acorn.....! ♥

Beautiful flowers there Lucy, I'm really looking forward to that delicious autumn wreath! Have a happy weekend! :) x


I'm looking forward a LOT to your adventure in Autumn wreath making! Have fun!! :-) xxxx

Love the flowers. Can't wait to see the Autumn Wreath.


Love the colours...
Can I just say ...will you have a big big think about doing a book.... How fantastic it would be for us all to have all your work and photos in a lovely colourful book.....


It's going to be beautiful, I just know it. The colours are perfection. Have a good weekend Lucy.


I like the Autumn colours very much!
Looking forward to see your Autumn wreath.
The leave with the two strands of yarn looks very nice!
Have a nice weekend.

Gorgeous colours Lucy, cannot wait to see it finished!! I bet it's looking fabulous in the dales it was beginning to turn when we came to Yarndale, it's looking lovely here in Norfolk too, loving the hedgerow walks with my little man. Charlie (2) loves his blackberry walks and we are so lucky enough to be able to have that right on our doorstep- love the autumn!!
