I love the colors of fall, I always have. Do you ever feel like the colors fade too quickly and you want them to last longer? Me too. For years B and I have been dipping leaves in beeswax. It has become a fall tradition for us, and it’s one of my favorites. I absolutely love the smell of the beeswax melting, and I love being able to preserve the leaves to enjoy the beautiful colors longer. Our friend Nicole was the first to inspire us to dip leaves in beeswax, and she shared a tutorial here on the blog years back, if you are interested in making some.
I received some happy mail recently – these three skeins from my friend Rachel at Six and Seven Fiber. When I opened the package and cradled the yarn in my arms (I’m known to do that, skeins of yarn do make me so happy!), I realized they were all fall colors. Funny enough, I didn’t think about that when I was picking them out on her website, I was just choosing colors I gravitate towards and I happen to gravitate often towards fall colors. Between these skeins of yarn and our beeswax leaves… I’m soaking up the colors of fall for a little longer, and for that I’m grateful.
