As you can see I completed the 1st colour of embroidered leaves for the Autumn/Winter half ; there will be 3 more .
I began the 2nd colour leaves on the Autumn/Winter half and the 1st on the Spring/Summer half . There will only be 2 more shades of green . I may have to do more on this half once it is complete if the balance of the 2 halves is wrong – possibly some handwork in metallic threads ?
It is all taking me more time than I bargained for , perhaps because it takes longer to take out and set up the sewing machine than to open a sketchbook and box of crayons . I have had a lot to do this week but I am sure we could all say that !
