Crocheted Leaves

I am ga-ga over these crocheted leaves!  I want to crochet a whole tree full, LOL!  And I think they go perfectly with tiny pumpkins.
I was on the search for the perfect crocheted maple leaf last week.  Google-ing, searching ravelry, and etsy...and some pinterest.  Pinterest led me to this etsy shop, ka-ching!!!!  Her shop GoldenLucy Crafts, is full of patterns for leaves and seashells.  I purchased her maple leaf pattern and it is awesome.  Easy to follow and she also has step by step photos.  Right now she has a pattern for an oak leaf that I am seriously eye-balling!  I'll probably get it, but first I want to make more maple leaves.
I experimented with some different yarns.  It's too hard to pick my favorite, they are all so pretty.

I finally finished up my third shawl.  I had a hard time trying to figure out what kind of edging to put on it.  I knew it needed one.  
I had this chenille by Lion Brand that I picked up from a sale bin that worked perfectly.  It really made the blue pop.
It is very "fringe-like" and so freakin soft!!  I do want to make more of these, maybe for Christmas or my etsy shop.  If you are interested in the pattern it's a Lion Brand freebie, called South Bay Shawlette.  The pattern doesn't have an edging, I added that myself.  
Isn't it yummy as a scarf!
And of course, worn like it was designed to be.

That's about it for now.  Enjoying a rainy Labor Day, with homemade soup and movies.  There is a Mash marathon on TVland my husband can't step away from!

I hope everyone has a great week!  Now I'm off to make more leaves.  (That seriously sounded like a "Martha Stuart" quote!)
