sewing circle :: love of leaves
It was so warm and sunny I had to try a little sun-printing, which is done with the same transparent Pebeo SetaColor fabric paints. This is my first try with a pressed and dried leaf - I typically use green leaves fresh from the tree. This pressed one worked beautifully and held up really well - might even last one more printing. I really like the way the tear showed up in the print. These two sugar maples mirroring each other are going to need two more to make it an even four. Stems meeting in the center.
It was oh so nice to sit outside together today. I also really enjoyed seeing what everyone else is working on and sewing on outside of all this leafiness. It's not all about leaves you know.
