Autumn Sunsets

I do love the colors of fall and the colors of sunset: Yellow, red, and orange. They're so warm and and comforting to me. I became a little curious about what these colors would like when crocheted together in a beautiful pattern. This was the result. Please keep in mind, the yellow appears much paler than it really is:
Not bad, I thought. Could make a nice autumn bedspread or a beautiful table runner, so I began to place the blocks together.
Then, I thought, a table runner or a bedspread would be too boring, so I decided to do something a little more daring. Do you know what that is? I'm not even going to give you a hint. You're going to have to wait for the finished product so stay tuned!!!

Is it Autumn Already?

Autumn is by far my most favorite season of the year. It's colorful and it leads into my 2 favorite holidays: Thanksgiving and Christmas! Autumn is also inspiring as far as crochet design. I'm working on a shabby/cottage chic dress popping with fall colors. I'm not sure if I'm going to keep the skirt of the dress solid or ombre, sigh. Decisions, decisions. I'll be posting pics soon of my progress but meanwhile, enjoy the cute hat that I just posted to my Etsy store: Glorious Crochet Design
Okay, here are the matching booties, LOL!!!!
