Fall Leaf Challenge Finished!!
A group I belong to issued a "leaf challenge" wherein we were to create a piece of fabric art encompassing the theme of leaves. Originally, my thought was to create something abstract with leaf shapes. However, during my experimentation I ended up making some interesting leaves that were more realistic than abstract. Here is a litle wall hanging I came up with utilizing those leaves and a little squirrel that I sketched out on muslin and free motion embroidered. Sabrina immediately fell in love with the squirrel and after our meeting tonight -- he will promptly be hung on her bedroom wall to celebrate the onslaught of Fall!
