Nine months into our Year of Wreaths, it's time to celebrate autumn!

September's wreath tutorial features berry-red yarn, felt oak leaves, sparkly thread, and an embroidered line of poetry: the opening line of John Keats famous ode to Autumn, Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness...

I am a teeny bit obsessed with this metallic thread! 

It's seriously shiny and really easy to stitch with - something that will come as a surprise if you've ever tried to embroider anything with metallic embroidery thread (so many knots! and so much stress! ugh!). This stuff is fab, I love it and kind of want to use it for everything.

"Season of mists" - I like that, seasons should be valued for what they are and we have to look for what makes us feel nice during a season (I can't find that for winter yet, maybe the first snow???). Autumn is so controversial but, no doubt, the season with the most beautiful colors!

I love this wreath, it is so pure. My children would prefer the mushroom wreath but I really like the other one. Thank you for this beautiful idea.

bairozan - autumn definitely brings some beautiful colours! I totally agree about valuing each season for their special characteristics, there's something a bit magical about each one :)
