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.
