FATW6 – Adventures in Mosaic – Garden Theme – Strip 3 Falling Leaves by Carola Herbst

The third strip for our Garden Themed blanket is Falling Leaves by Carola Herbst. Have you ever watched leaves fall from trees? It looks like they are doing a dance as they swirl around and gently land on the ground. As you open the gate into your garden you will see some beautiful trees with their leaves swaying in a soft breeze.

Our designer for Falling Leaves, Carola Herbst will tell us a little bit about herself.

“I live in the north of Germany, a landscape framed by the North Sea and the Baltic Sea, close to
the border of Denmark.
I’ve been crocheting since I was a child. My mother taught me a lot of handicrafts (knitting,
crocheting, cross stitching) during the school time.
In the past I mainly crocheted lace for curtains, pillows and beddings by using thread and small
hooks. I loved these filigree crochet works.
Since 2011 I make my own crochet designs starting with patterns for crochet appliqués and
amigurumis. In 2012 I designed my first mandala in overlay crochet and many more followed.
Overlay crochet is a very enjoyable technique, a game with colors and design elements.
In 2016 I started creating crochet dolls under the label CAROcreated.
If I`m not designing new patterns I love to crochet home decors and to knit shawls for my friends
and myself!”

Do be sure to check out her other designs by accessing her social media. Those dolls are absolutely lovable!

Right now in my part of the world it is Autumn, and I am loving all of the colorful falling leaves. Our Makers did a fantastic job with their leaves.
