Stitching on leaves

This is my other evening stitch meditation project that is almost ready for mounting and then joining into an art quilt. These leaves are stitched between layers of organza. i soaked the leaves before I started as they were quite dry and therefore brittle. Once you get a few lines of stitching onto them they seem to be much more subtle. The two brown ones are plane tree leaves that blew into my garden from the park and the red one is a forest tulip leaf collected from Shirley Burridge's leaf fall on my was to work. I will mount these on black felt and then frame them in a portal before joining all the specimen's together
