Much prettier than what I am sweeping up!
I love the fallen leaves and the Tokyo photo! Nothing where I live looks so beautifully fallish.
Wow, Queenie! Love those leaves on wet asphalt! They are really beautiful, and I love your colour choices.Especially love the little greenish Brown one, top right ..... is that a random thread or have you mixed various colours? A great mixture of leaf shapes too!I couldn’t envisage how to stitch the leaves until I saw this.Really inspirational, I must try that on my sampler!Barbara xx
The real leaves I have seen this year are torn by typhoons, damaged by rain or shriveled up. No leaves are as pretty as mine made of thread!The trees in the picture look nice in the distance and reflected in the pond, but up close they all look shabby.
This year the autumn foliage in Tokyo is very disappointing - most leaves are damaged by wind, rain and insects. From a distance, like in the photograph they look nice, but go close and you have a sorrow sight.
Ha, ha, the greenish brown one is a mix of DMC stranded floss and metallic coppery thread.This stitch is easiest on a plain weave, it was harder to figure out where to insert the needle on the Aida fabric.Have fun!
Love the fallen leaves - a great success!
Lovely leaves and the pic of Tokyo looks amazing.
Living where the trees are ever-greens it is lovely to see all the colours
Thank you! They are quick to work up and add a nice touch to a flower stitch.
The trees in the Tokyo park look great from a distance, but are weather worn when you get closer - the work of typhoons!
One of the best trees that change colours is the sakura, cherry. In spring before the leaves come out there are the pink flowers, then light green leaves that turn dark green in summer,and in autumn go from green to orange to wine red to purple to brown and then fall off.
Love these fall leaves!
love the colours. I have to confess a fondness for these fall colours. very beautiful Tokyo scenery.
