Autumn Joy

Hello my dear friends,

one of the most fascinating and beautiful things about Autumn are the colors that come with this season and all the bits and pieces like seed pods, pine cones and other little nature treasures you can find.

My little Rhododendron bush is shining in so many beautiful colors.

Last years acorn harvest.
What to do, what to do?

My collection of wool had the perfect colors I need for this making and when you add the wool, acorns, nature and Autumn together ... you will make this!!
My newest nest ...
'Autumn Joy'
I chose to use softer Autumn colors and not vibrant ones to make this nest very nature like and I gave the acorns a slight sheen as if the sun was shining on them. I think I used ten different types of wool for this nest from greens to all sort of shades of browns and dark reds.
 Enough talk now and I hope you like my latest felted creation.


The picture below is my favourite one so far of this nest ~ it looks like it really does belong in the little tree.
I hope you enjoyed my newest felted nest. I have so much fun making these because every nest turns out slightly different from the previous one and you also get a chance to get rid of any little bit of frustration whilst hand felting in the sink.
I am also working on a Christmas nest and I also made a Winter nest already earlier this summer but I am not going to share them with all you lovely bloggers just yet. There will be all sorts of little makings of mine that will be here soon again.
So ... whenever you have a moment, grab a cup of coffee or tea and come and visit me here at Todolwen ~  I am sure there will be something new waiting here for you to discover.
I hope you are well and life is treating you kind my dear friends,
Have a peaceful and creative day,
Karen B.
