February's leaves made by Mandy

Here's what Mandy created for me. A colourful page of leaves which evoke the colours of autumn. She has used a number of techniques - opaque seta colours to paint the background, applique ,reverse applique and machine embroidery.
The reverse has a little pocket into which I'm going to tuck in the note with all the details. Thank you for "the bit of fun" - a little packet of buttons, in the shape of leaves and little acorns. I'm going to use them when I make up the book at the end of the year.

Carmen your page was put in the mail early this week, you should have it by next week.
I've yet to begin the page for March which is for Chris, will get started this weekend.
Take care all and have a good weekend.
