Lacy leaves

Because of my cold, even though it's not too terrible, I opted not to visit my in laws today in case it's contagious. I decided to make a batch of raisin bread which I'd been wanting to try in a while. I'll freeze some for Christmas.

In my sewing studio, I first took some time to finish up one of my Christmas gifts. Time is ticking!
Then I ironed the Saran off my stitched leaves in between pages of the newspaper. I kept them quite lacy and thin as this is the way they are in the photo. There were only a few still clinging to the small tree.

 I couldn't wait to lay them out on my background! Tomorrow, I plan to stitch the small tree branches first before I stitch down the leaves.

Yes, you have kept those leaves very lacy. Well done.

Holly, I am painting birds in watercolour and on fabric this winter. Would I be able to use the photos of blue jays you had a couple of posts back as reference photos for painting? I always like to get permission, as photography is an art too.
