Autumn Bouquet

I know---it's spring, not fall.  However, I forgot to show the autumn piece I was working on back in Fall 2009.      "Autumn Bouquet" is  27"  x  23 1/2".   The leaves were individually cut out and fused onto a piece of pellon.  I then hand embroidered around and on each leaf, going on to back the "cluster" with black felt. After cutting out and around the outside edges and the inner openings, I bound it all together with embroidery thread.  (I have to admit, after going over and over each leaf, this became less and less of a good idea.)   I'm not sure how I feel about it overall, but I do love the colors.
