I love wreaths and I very often make a new one, sometimes just for the fun of it.
Thank you for sharing all these ideas for wreaths with us . I'm looking forward to seeing the process and the final outcome , when you have finished your winter wreath.
Have a lovely week.

I have never thought of making a Wreath but I love your designs. I like the bright colours, I am going to try and make one. Regards Glen Hilver

I think the color palette you chose is just right for representing winter! And although the wreaths you took your inspiration from are pretty, I believe, based on what you've created, will be even prettier! You are so good at making color choices and I can hardly wait to see the finished product! Er wreath!


Right now I'm 15 rows into a mostly cottage-y ripple, but a new favourite winter colour scheme of mine is this mix of palest pink, blue and white with lots of sparkle, that I decorated cookies with. Non-traditional, but really pretty! https://fbcdn-sphotos-f-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-xap1/v/t1.0-9/10846392_856528394399106_1024638309952955101_n.jpg?oh=df7d01095d23673026e4085bfc1e7177&oe=553DFA8B&__gda__=1429171287_093209aaa67e71acdda87cca58cf124d

Oooh yes. Definitely loads of inspiration here. love your blog Lucy. It always has a real 'feel good' feeling about it. :)


So glad you have got your internet connection back! It's so awful when you want to get online and can't. I love your winter wreath inspirations and especially your photos - I have never used my photos as a basis for creating needlecraft creations but I might have a go now.


Your Wreath are so colorful ! And your pictures look really great ! = )


Hurray for being back in Blogland! Internet troubles can be soo annoying, can't they?

Now that you showed us the wreath which inspired you, I am excited to see what your's look like! Plus I would love to see pics of your new studio! :)

Take care

Lovely wreaths Lucy. I am sure you will come up with something stunning!


Hi Lucy good to have you back. I love the colour scheme you have chosen. However when I think of winter wreaths I find it a struggle to differentiate between pre-post Christmas. As you will see on the link you put, in my opinion some look too Christmassy, then one or two have got the post christmas pre-spring period just right, and I am sure you will too, hence I wait with anticipation to see the results of your creativity.

It's so nice to see you back I have loved your colourful and gentle blog for years.You have inspired me many times with my projects
thank you so much


I love the idea of the more subdued palette for your winter wreath. Your photos of the wreaths are great but nothing compared to having seen them on your wall. Good luck with the making, you have lots of inspiration in your winter photos.


I'm so excited to see how this one turns out for you Lucy!! I love your wreaths, and love the beautiful muted colours of winter too, so I think this will be fabulous. You could still add a little cyclamen-pink here and there, it would look sensational against the greys, whites, blues and greens. Xx


Such gorgeous soft gentle beautiful colours. Can't wait to see it evolve.

Ooh, I'm in love with lots of them and when I first started reading at the top I thought a little sparkle could be added, then further down your suggestions included it too. Can't wait to see what you do. I've so many things on my "to finish list",(challenges I've put on my blog, so feel that I must do them), that I might think about a wreath for next Xmas. Wish I could come to one of your class days to learn how to make flowers, as I get completely confused. Take care Lucy.


I love these! One day, when my yarn stash grows, I will have to use the remnants of other projects to make a wreath!


I can't wait to see your ides for a new winter wreath. Your christmas wreath was the one that inspired me to crochet again after decades of crochet dormancy.
I love my own wreath inordinately but perhaps will not get away with a wintry wreath here in Australia. I guess it's back to jolly chunky mini bags for my girls:)
Oh and get a wriggle on starting a cottage ripple blanket, wonderful to read you back online, keep on blogging on please:)


So glad your computer is up and running again, Lucy! Love the idea of a wooly Christmas wreath - you always have the best ideas!


Great to see you back on line and what a great idea in the making. I have just finished the Cosy blanket and it is beautiful thanks to your great choice of colour palette. And that edging was so lovely. So I can't wait to see what the wreath will be like for my next project. Thanks so much for continuing to inspire.


Cold, pale, frosty colours are exactly what I would choose as well, the colours of the winter sky. I'm really looking forward to seeing you working on it. Enjoy your Sunday Lucy. CJ xx


Welcome back !! I can't wait to see your new wreath !! I loved all of them and I might challange this already-overly-busy-self of mine with a complete set of seasonal wreaths ... maybe I should start thinking of a spring one already ... keep us updated ! Happy sunday !

Anne Baselt

Yay...you are back. Now my day is complete and cheerful.


Really looking forward to seeing your wreath, thanks so much for sharing a pic of mine, such a wonderful surprise on a winters afternoon. Have a good weekend.
Clare xx


Oh my goodness. I just finished my own winter wreath just last night. I used a very similar color scheme and mine was inspired by your previous ones. I am hoping to post mine this weekend and I will have to come back and share. Thanks for sharing all your lovely inspiration.

Teresa Kasner

I am looking forward to what you come up with on this project. My poor door is devoid of embellishment after taking down my xmas wreath. I agree that there needs to be a winter wreath there. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
