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

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.
