I have a folder on my desktop with pictures of every work I want to show you. Unfortunately I don’t have much time to crochet on my daily basis and therefore every project takes me ages to complete… :( And so I thought it would be a good idea to host also my old amigurumi here.
Today I was browsing files, and this one picture catched my eye. I really like this doll, its gentle hair, head leaned to the side and pine cone beside her. The pattern I used was created by Daniela Duma, you will find it on Ravelry.
When I saw original Autumn doll for the first time, I fell in love with it. How cute she looks, from the way colourful layers on the dress unfold, to long, delicate braid falling down on the side. Autumn is also my favourite season :)
In few weeks it will arrive again. Where I live it offers variety of beautiful scenes. When it’s warm and sunny, leaves change colours to gold, red and brown. Chestnuts, acorns and red mountain ash adorn trees, various mushrooms sprout from moss in the forest and the sun is more gentle than in the summer. But autumn can be also chilly, with mists arising and rooks and crows flying across the cloudy sky. It can be rainy, with dusk falling early and leavless trees swaying on the wind. This time of year you can see the night sky and stars clearly. You can also wrap yourself in a blanket and spend endless hours in bed, in front of fireplace or in the garden reading, crocheting, drinking tea and hot chocolate… Sounds like perfect day to me :)
Forgive me if I am a bit too sentimental. I am right now far away from home, like 600 kilometers from where I live, on a two month delegation from work. I love it here, and I am by the seaside, which is amazing! I miss my family and friends, though, and long horribly for my cats. But tomorrow’s my last day at work here, and when I get back I will pack myself up and get ready. On Saturday morning I’m going to board onto a train home. I am already counting down the hours. So the very next time I will write you from Kraków, yayy!
It appeares I am sleepy, too. Time to go to bed, I guess. Sleep tight :)
