The Latest Stitched and Embellished Sample

Another sample completed. This is flowering Cherry Leaves. These leaves amaze me as in the Spring their prints are a clear yellow but at this time of year (Autumn in NZ) the prints are this lovely golden colour. There are tiny seed beads down the midrib of the leaves and I have just used running stitch to outline the leaves and the lateral veins. The leaves were printed on mordanted cotton with the underside of the leaf to the fabric and a weak iron blanket
