I was so happy to get to swap with Onyxnox recently. "Autumn" was one of the themes she had on her wish list so I did a quick search and found a lovely quote to inspire this hoop.

Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower. - Albert Camus



I stamped the words "second spring" onto a piece of linen. I then made the felt leaves and positioned them in a way that they'd look a bit like a flower - just like the quote suggests!



I used wool blended felt, DMC floss and some buttons and beads to embellish the fall leaves.



Three cheers for fall!!

I just love this, there's something so delicious-looking about the leaves, as though each is a little pastry.  Smiley

The stamping on the linen is so pretty since it contrasts beautifully with the vibrant felt.  Absolutely love this, had to pin it immediately.
