Calendar Sheet November 2010
The best thing about autumn - trees that are green and nice throughout the year, suddenly burst into colour. I love this time of year where the hills are alive with the colours of autumn ;-) Everyday has new shades, there is so much change everyday, the air is fresh and crisp, the sky is amazingly blue - until one day it is all covered by a thick white blanket.
To celebrate this special time of year, I made something special.
Getting ready for a niece autumn afternoon at home
I sat down on our table (a table I used to sit already at when I was a child - a fact which is easily recognized when you have a close look, and that's what I love about it). I had a cup of tea, some fresh fruit from the garden (a few cape gooseberries and a special very tiny and sweet type of tomatoes), gathered the wool I would need, arranged what I had already made and took my crochet hook.

Sweetly wrapped cape gooseberries from the garden
These special type of cape gooseberry (physalis pruinosa) was my favourite home grown fruit this summer. You usually get the first ripe fruit in June and can go out and pick some every day. I adore the way nature packed them and love to unwrap them before eating.
3 - crochet trees
My crochet autumn forest
After an hour of tea, fruit and crochet, I had a nice little arrangement of trees in autumn colours.
4 - side effects
Cutt off wool in a jar
There are always some side effects when one is doing something - sewing all ends in and cutting them off, I like to keep them in a jar. I just need to have a look at the jar and know which projects I have been working on (in the background you see my red bowl with all the collected fruits from outside)
5 - arranging
Autumn Trees, a string and pegs
What to do with so many trees. I took a brown string, some small pegs and arranged everything into a basket.
6 - tadah!
MiaDeRoca autumn garlands
The next day: all the trees lined up into a autumn garland
- and there are quite a few trees left to be sent away.
