I love your Gathered Wreath!

Robin Summers

Whenever I see a new recent post on the first page of you blog my heart skips a beat. I get so excited to read another entry and see another part of your colorful world. Lucy I love your wreath. The picture showing the cuff of your red coat made me smile since I knew how it came to be. I absolutely love your blog and all the exciting hookery that you do. Thank you so much for all the time that you give to us. You are the best!! Lots of squishy hugs sent your way. :D


Absolutely beautiful! From now on my walks with have a different feel to them - more gathering for sure!

I love the muted colours and delicate design...beautiful!

Well I LOVE it! You are s-o definitely not alone. lol My collection(s) is mostly displayed on my front porch (for all to see). My latest is a big re-cycled pickle jar filled with sweet gum balls with dried sunflowers from my garden arranged in the top.I even have not one but two large pieces of dried (not dead) trees displayed, currently with faux snowflakes and birds/owls in them.lol (Will post to Flickr soon.)I love the one on Little Green Shed of the colored wrapped twigs over the bed, think I'll incorporate that on the porch with a few feathers added.I also love the wreath on On My Honor with the white leaves. Have you seen those shadowbox tables for displaying small items? Those would be wonderful for our treasures! Thanks for sharing. x


Love your wreath, Lucy, so clever using just random things you found on your walk! X

Oh Lucy - this is totally me! We used to have a grape arbor and I would collect the vines and make a few wreaths for our home. I love how you 'collected' and how you used your yarn and wire to put it all together. What a soft and pretty wreath!!


Very pretty, a statement piece for this time of year.


Such a good idea and brilliantly executed. Thanks for sharing! xx

Tricia Clark

It's so delicate and pretty and ethereal Lucy! Looks like a fairy bower! I think you just need to find the perfect place for it to catch the light and show up those beautiful delicate colours -what about hanging it actually in a window? At the top, maybe?

I have been following your blog (and Yarndale) for a few years now and LOVE it. I'm lucky enough to live in beautiful Yorkshire too and am a regular visitor to Skipton which is one of my favourite places to spend time. I wish I had your eye for a great photograph!
Best wishes, Tricia


Your wreath is so pretty and delicate and such a contrast to the full-on green ones which predominate at Christmas. Yours reminds me of warm, sunny summer days - much better than these cold, stormy, windy ones we're having at the moment. Thank you for the breath of summer


Love it :)x


Your creation is for me inspiration because it's simple and beautiful!!!!!

I use long lengths of ivy that are hanging over my wall to twist into a circle, and tie it temporarily with green garden twisty stuff.

It makes a good base- for anything in the way of decoration. I started doing it because, where I live, I can't get the wreath bases you used in your seasonal wreaths...



Simply love it!

Beautiful ! I've planned to make one too ... but i'm still sore-throat and sick so I cant't go the forest now. I've just made some woolly wreaths ! Have a nice day !



So schön, herzlichen Dank x


Can soo get your family thinking like they do my lot are the same, but I carry on like you regardless, my mum and dad are getting my Xmas crochet to string across their inglenook fire place. I loved your wreath so clever.


I wish I could think of something like this. I love it.


NAWWWW its a fairy crown! :D



I've just made my first Christmas wreath from foraged finds, but it's more the full blown leafy variety. I adore your subtle, understated one and what a great idea to cover your base ring with yarn. Don't listen to your family, it's gorgeous!x


I love that you foraged from nature's bounty to create your beautiful wreath. I'm planning a similar trip tomorrow for pinecones and berries and then some quiet time to make swags to hang from my front porch.

Teresa Kasner

Well.. tell your family that it's very tasteful and natural and some people will pay big bucks for such a treasure! :-) I love it!

((hugs)), Teresa :-)


Your wreath makes me remember my Mom taking me through the woods every fall to gather a winter bouquet. All dried things; I loved it!

Lisa G.

What a beautiful creation! And you used what you had, making up your frame - good job!
