Summer is leaving us and, although this autumn begins with high temperatures, the leaves are already falling from the trees. But my bonsai didn't wait 'till fall ... a few months ago it died before I could do anything to save it. ☹ I never had the heart to throw away the beautiful dry stem and one day I came across a wonderful skein of multicolor Anchor Freccia in a range of green-yellow-brown and suddenly the idea for my first crochet project of the season came to me: giving my bonsai a new life
Como se ve el pobre se quedó seco-seco pero ahí estaba yo tejiendo hojitas como una loca para repoblar sus ramitas.
As you see the poor thingy was dry-dry, but there I was crocheting leaves like crazy to repopulate its little branches.
Tejí las hojas de diferentes tamaños y les dejé un trozo generoso de hilo al final para poder amarrarlas cómodamente a las ramas.
I crocheted leaves of different sizes and left a generous piece of thread at the end to tie them to the branches comfortably.
Poco a poco fui enrollando y atando las hojitas en cada rama...
Carefully I tangled and tied the leaves to each branch...
Y tras cortar todos los hilos sobrantes, éste fue el resultado: ¡TA-DAAA! ☺
And after cutting all excess threads, this was the result: TA-DAAH! ☺
Ahora tendré mi hermoso bonsai otoñal (mi estación favorita) para disfrutar todo el año ♥
