Leaves on the Lake

I have been working on a new piece for about a month now, and thought I would post a progress report. This is based on a picture I took when we were visiting our Son and his family at Fort Lewis, Wa. We stayed in a cabin on a lake right on the Army base, and I took a picture of leaves floating on the lake. I used wonder under to fuse the leaves onto the background, and I'm about half-way through with machine stitching the details on the leaves.

Here is a closeup of the detail work:

Some of the fabrics are hand dyed, the rest came from my stash. I am using variegated cotton thread for the details.
