It´s autumn – the leaves are falling….
This brought me to the idea to show an embroidery with autumn coloured leaves.
This autumnal project was designed and embroidered by Christa Waldmann. She arranged leaves and fruits of different broad-leaved trees to a long border. The entire piece measures 15 cm X 220 cm. The design was embroidered on a linen ribbon with a relatively coarse weave which did not allow thread withdrawing. Christa Waldmann chose autumnal shades for her project.
Additionally she embroidered a similar design single-colour on finer linen. The fine weave enables thread withdrawing and hence much more possibilities for using different filling patterns.
