I'm feeling very inspired, there is something in the air in the fall that motivates me to find my inner Martha Stewart. The fall, crisp, clear air and the fact that I got the latest issue of LIVING magazine in the email this week have gotten my creative juices flowing. I'm ready to be decorating, cooking, cleaning, organizing and knitting. I started with a walk in the woods on Sunday but really, all it took was about 5 minutes at the edge of the woods to find these goodies. Then I turned them into a fall centerpiece for my dining room table.

Arrange a set of branches then wrap brightly colored yarn or roving around parts of the branches and voilà! I used some green/brown, bright yellow, soft yellow, dark orange and red.

I might either swap some of these for brighter yarn or just add a few more places with some brighter yarns - I was very concerned about overdoing it and adding too much yarn, but then looking back at the pictures in the magazine I could definitely add some more and I think I might! Still a very fun, easy, and quick project!
