Maple leaves

© JEC/Carol-Anne Conway

Maple leaves (momiji), of course, represent autumn. This is the time of year when leaves take center stage and become the belle of the ball. Before the arrival of winter the Maple puts on one last display the glorious colours.

The leaves are stitched in separated foundation with twisted silk. Notice how the angle of the stitches alters to follow the shape of the leaf.
