|Printed from fallen leaves found in a garden centre|
|Includes eucalyptus and vine leaves|
|Have completed another centimetre of weaving|
|Cloth dyed with flowers from 60th birthday bouquet|
|A permanent momento|
Mo Crow showed an image of a real leaf she had waxed on her blog http://itscrowtime.wordpress.com/ the other day so I have tried that as well, seems to have worked. Next year I am doing a piece called 'A Walk in the Woods'. If the leaves last they would look great.
And yes I have done a little weaving and an image for my next piece.
I have a way to go still.
Instead of throwing my birthday bouquet away when the flowers died I dyed a piece of cloth with them. This piece is about a metre by half a metre, dyed using wool which takes up the colours so beautifully. The close up is a more accurate view of the colour, it also has patches of green and blue in it. I am thrilled with this and it is such a lovely thing to be able to keep.
The only problem is that wool makes me itch so if I decide to stitch it this I could probably only complete a little at a time.
