Thank you for visiting artful embellishments. This is the third year for this blog and I am so happy to keep publishing. I started in 2011 and began with a quilt of the week, this lead to the leaf of the week for my newly designed paper tree that is located on the wall of my garage in 2012.......2013 is going to bring a lot of excitement and positive change. As a personal challenge for 2013, I plan on designing a artist trading card each week to be featured on the blog.
With so many interests, there will be quilting, art quilting, leaves (and more leaves), as well as experiments in thermofax screen printing, fabric dying, and tons of DIY recycle projects. I may even enter that altered fashion scene. To a happy and healthy 2013, may we all find happiness in those things we create....thank you for stoping by artful embellishments.

Leaves 50-58

The leaves are almost completely off the trees here in Michigan. I thought I would finish up my series of brightly colored leaves. There were 8 remaining. Two of my favorites are the "The Game" and the dragonfly, sans wings.  I loved this upholstery fabric, it is so bright and cheerful, but all leaves eventually come to an end, in this case I just ran out of fabric.  These are leaves 50-58. I have reached my 2012 goal of 52, but the tree hasn't reached "full".  I plan on expanding my leaf collection to include paper and different fabrics. I hope to work on those very soon.  To the end of the color season in nature, to the beginning of color for my tree.
