More Autumn prints

As I unpacked my car from quilt camp I noticed my Japanese maple was in full color. I took a minute to gathered up a handful of leaves, lay them on wool fabric, roll it up,  steam and let it set for 5 days.

I wasn't sure how much detail I would get as the leaves are so skinny, but it turned out pretty good.

A nice burgundy/brown color with gold highlights.

I finished stitching on the vines, berries and leaves to my wool piece.
I've been stitching up a storm but I am not able to show you at this time as the pieces are gifts for my friends for Christmas.
