Saturday evening experiments

My obsession with embroidery continues.

I've been meaning to try stitching on leaves for a long time. I finally did today! I used a reverse applique technique with a leaf. I am pleased with the way it looks. The picture above is a collage of of the leaves I stitched on plus a security envelope pattern. They are so fragile and precious. Anyways, this is just the beginning of an idea. I'm not sure where it will go. I'm wondering if they will last at all...I will press them for a while and make sure they completely dry out.
