Oak Leaf Under Organza

As we approach Autumn I suddenly realised the oak leaves will soon be falling and I want to complete my stitched leaf project so I worked on sandwiching an Oak Leaf between layers of grey organza. I began this project several years ago with the original intention of presenting the leaves in a quilt format. However someone sat on some of the earlier samples and although they remained intact when flat, they shattered when crumpled frm sitting on. I needed to rethink what I wanted to do with the leaves that were undamaged and eventually decided I would just frame them and maybe present them all on a wall so that is something I am working toward when I am not quilting Winter in Matakiori
