Last of the Autumn Leaves
This embroidery was inspired by a small copse of trees high up on the Cotswolds. The last of the autumn leaves were clinging to the trees despite the breeze.
The background fabric is Habutai Silk. I painted the scene with fabric paints and then it was Free Machine Embroidered on a sewing machine. The various textures were achieved by altering the tension of the machine.
The embroidery was then further stitched by hand to add more texture and depth.
