P.S. on Autumn Leaves in July

One of our readers, Lynn, wrote this comment on my recent post about Autumn leaves:

 'I too love leaves. One trick I have used is to use steam a seam light to fuse actual leaves to the fabric -- those leaf remnants that seem to be held together merely by veins.  I asked Lynn to send me a picture of an example of her technique, and here it is:

Lynn added this comment in her e-mail: " It is a small piece, maybe 12x15.   I was just experimenting.  It was remarkably easy to iron the leaf.   I tried ironing it first without fusible to make sure it would work. 
I love that Lynn was able to use a real leaf in this piece, and hope to try this myself!  Thanks for sharing your work, Lynn!
