Autumn is around a long corner in the central valley, and all the autumn leaves have been on my mind. Did you ever try catching the colorful autumn tree leaves before they fell to the ground on a breezy day? Growing up, I had so much fun playing outside with the leaves.
On the internet I’ve been catching up with some great leaves as I’ve had a chance to look around a little more in the past week or so. Here are a few posts where I caught a glimpse of some wonderful leaves.
Thank you ladies for sharing your work!
Regular readers may remember a few of my previous posts on the subject of leaves. Leaves have always fascinated me. And when my friend Anne Gailhbaud started talking to me about her leaf sampler early this year I was excited. And then she sent me a sampler of leaves that is beautiful, each leaf is worked in a different type of stitch. If you haven’t checked Anne’s website lately please do. It’s updated with lots of new work from this year.
Raised stitch experiments? On going…
a tree, open chain trunk over the long tie downs of the branch chains and a few detached chains at the top with a few straight stitches at the bottom.
three converging straight stitches added
various threading trials
I’ve had a lot fun with this stitch. There are a few more trials I want to try with it. And I want to do some research on one of the variations. But I don’t think it will be this week.
Next post Wednesday (us, west coast).
