Autumn Shades #Folksy

Thought we would have a change of pace today and have Autumn shades from Folksy. I did it the easy way by finding things and popping them on a Pinterest board so I would have them all together. From there it was a much easier task to transfer them one at a time to this blog.
I saw some lovely Autumn shades creations on Folksy which gave me the idea of showing them to you all.
Sadly I have already noticed some of the leaves turning so Autumn is not far away at all. Then before we know it winter will be upon us and that will mean.... yes.... that C word.... shall I scare you and say it? I think I will... Christmas. It`s less than four months away now and at the rate this year has rapidly passed will be upon us before we know it. Eeeek!
Yesterday started off sunny and warm and apart from a few cloudy times, that threatened rain, stayed that way.
Finished my latest creation and started another. The one I just finished was a hood with scarf attached. I figured that lots of people don`t like tight hats or even suit them but a hood is looser and with the attached scarf should hold in place firmly. It`s made with a chunky yarn in my own stitch that gives it a lovely textured feel. I`ve been using that yarn a lot in different shades as I somehow feel we might be in for a bad winter. Could be something to do with the extremes of weather we have experienced so far this year.
As usual, to see a bigger picture or a description, just click on the item to view it in the shop.
ENJOY!!!
Autumn will soon be on it`s way,
I saw some dead leaves just today.
The colours always look so glorious
as the chill sets in and is victorious.
Winning, as the summer starts to wane
and winters hold begins to gain
mastery over nature and us all
holding the land in it`s thrall.
Leaves will slowly wither and die
eventually letting go with a sigh.
But first many will turn red,
then brown before being shed.
Others have a vibrant orange glow
that fades, oh so very slow.
Yellows too, some muddy, some bright
all of these a wondrous sight.
They fall then to the ground
a colourful carpet all around.
Crisp and brittle, blown into a heap
I enjoy the crunch as I leap
into the middle kicking up with delight,
as the wind blows them and they take flight!!
