Finished it Friday! x 4

I just finished up this (sweet) little set of four autumn sky/tree pictures in time for tomorrow's group show & sale at Agar's Corner.  They worked out just how I hoped they would!  When I was first gifted all those silk ribbons, the idea popped into my head to stitch leaves turning colors.  Here they are!

Autumn Birches #1


Autumn Birches #2


Autumn Birches #3


Autumn Birches #4

They look so pretty in the box-style chunky white frames I got.  I'm tempted to keep them for myself!  I made them to have some lower priced items at the show.  The silks are all hand dyed - including the sari silk I used for the trunks.  When they are displayed together, they remind me of looking out a window in the fall.  AAaaaaaaaah.  : )  I just can't stop taking photos of them!  : )  I'm enjoying the silk so darn much.


 p.s.  All are stitch-signed by hand too...


 Happy autumn!  If you are nearby, please stop by the show and say hello.  ; )

Those ribbons are perfect for the leaves. What lovely pieces you created. They do make a wonderful grouping! I can see how they can be hard to part with.

Lovely! Good luck, I hope you have a great day. Agar's is a really cool venue.

They're lovely! It's fun to work on something a little different. Have fun at the sale!

I would love to see how you would approach an Australian gum tree (or eucalyptus) landscape. And I bet an Australian red desert landscape would make an awesome fibre art postcard.
