A Perfect Leaf

This really big plane tree leaf blew into my yard and it was in perfect condition. I decided to put it between organza and stitch down the main vein lines. I am always amazed at this process because as I add the stitching the leaf becomes more and more flexible. It is brittle to begin with but as the stitches are added and the leaf is supported by the organza, it becomes easier to place the stitches. I need to machine around the outside and cut away the surplus organza now and maybe I will add it to my leaf art quilt which is still in the process of design
