It'd been ages since I'd done any free-style machine sewing. It was great to do a bit last night if only to make some leaves with curly cues. I fused them out with the soldering iron & then stitched them onto my backing piece along some twisted brown wool. Added a few french knots to spruce it up a bit & then stitched more brown wool around the edges. Now I feel like making another one. Maybe a tree with LOTS of fall leaves.
