What I've Been Up To..




...Swatching tiny oak leaves in delicious green yarn. 
Since I'm a lover of all things green and leafy, I'm finding this part of the design process very exciting.

So beautiful! I wish I could find a maple leaf motif as beautiful as this oak leaf is. Can't wait to see the grand finale!

Carla said...

Oh that is lovely. I can't wait to see what it becomes. And I loveee that yarn color.

Cheryl said...

Beautiful. Would love a pattern of that leaf. It would be really fun to add to a plain scarf or blanket. Your patterns are amazing but a bit beyond my skills still.

Evelyn said...

Your leaf couldn't be more perfect ... and I love the way the yellow just tips each point.

Anne said...

OOHLALA, the leaf is beautiful! Wouldn't it be great to make your leaves into a blanket of leaf motifs square and call it your "family tree".

You are so gifted with leaf shapes. Any tips for a beginner at needle felting who is trying to create leaves?

jzim said...

It is so pretty. what a great job.

You've done such a good job of getting the leaf to stand out from the background stitches, especially with a multi-colored yarn. Do you have a secret? I love. . . love . . . love!
