Work-in-Progress Wednesday 4

 
I'm feeling the Fall vibe this week (even though it's been pretty summer-like around here), so I decided to break out the cozy, chunky yarn and make this lovely wreath. The pattern & photo tutorial make it super easy to crochet.  I finished the first one in about an hour...while the kids were awake.  Yes, I said the first one.  I decided this week that I needed to add a little something extra to two upcoming birthday gifts and thought this would be a fun addition (didn't hurt that I pinned it a few weeks ago and have been dying to make it).

Here is my current progress on wreath #2 (given that the photo above is more of a before and after shot)...

And the finished wreath #1 - Photo is darkened to protect the identity of the wreath from its future owner (definitely not just a bad photo on a cloudy day).

How fun! Those definitely make me want to curl up with a cup of cider. Guess I'll settle for munching on a breakfast apple for now. :) Happy wreathing!
