Welcoming fall flower necklace



We've been witnessing a gradual drop of temperatures for the weekend and today I put my cardigan on for the first time in the last several months. I am a bit sad for the end of summer (when the school starts it seems like flying away) but I think I am ready for some warmer clothes and accessories. Maybe that's because I've been working on some woolen shrugs and cardigans and was completely immersed in fall/winter themes.

This neck piece was made using a variation of my favourite Irish rose and I really like the protruding petals which make this necklace to have a fabulous texture.


Have a lovely start of the week!

Gorgeous! I love the colours and the double layer effect. It's getting cold here too, it froze last night :( So sad to see summer end. Winter does mean lots of crafting though! Thanks so much for linking up at Etcetorize this week~

I was right, wasn't I Maya? You truly ARE the Queen of Crochet! This is such a stunningly beautiful piece of work again, really awesome! And the necklace looks so good on your lovely daughter! irascreacorner.blogspot.nl

Beautiful work and photo shoot,as well grey is one of my favourite colours on children and so underused. Lovely piece, completely agree with Ira's comment, above, you are crochet royalty. We are also experiencing a night and early morning drop in temperatures, but sunny skies during the day. I love September.

we're still having summer during the day but at night it's colder.
The necklace is lovely and I was surprise with the mix of colors, they are not my favourites but I like how they go together.
and your daughter is a great model!

Love this necklace, Maya! I'm really going to sound redundant, but you just have a way with that crochet hook. You have made me look at crochet jewelry in a whole new way. And your daughter is a great model! I'm choosing you as one of the featured links this week at Hookin On Hump Day!
