Another fall item - Victoria Clarke's Fall Brooch

I really enjoyed being with Vicki Clarke at Tat Days. I think that everytime I smell lavender I will not only think of my mother but also of Vicki. Here is what I entered in the SC State Fair. I enjoyed making the flowers but adapted the Shuttle Brother's method of pushing the little joining picots to the back so I could find them. I liked the idea of a 3 D leaf so have been playing around with them since Vicki got me started.

O Christmas Tree O Christmas Tree

Riet had done the Nancy Tracy pattern for the Christmas tree and put it in a candle holder. I couldn't resist trying it in size 80 thread and adding the red lights (beads) as she had done. The only thing was, when I got to the top, I just had to had a star on top.....just had too. So I played around with the beads and this is what I came up with.

Playing around with Fall Leaves

Riet and I have been playing with threads and making fall leaves along with snakes and spiders for the State Fair.

The one on the top is Marilee Rockley's thread. The two alike are Lori and Hope's "George" thread. I will let you guess which leaves are Riet's and which ones are Pam's.
