You can click on this picture to get a closer look at the piece. You can see the details a lot better. It isn't a great piece by any means, but I think it will be useable--and it was fun! The dark places on it come from the centers of the Black-Eyed Susans. I threw in a few purple flowers from my yard. (I don't know what they were.) I think that is what shows up as dark purple. The Black-Eyed Susans also caused some areas of yellow to show up.
I just love the fall. This year it has been so dry around here that we didn't get the usual beautiful fall colors. However, I did get some really pretty leaves on a bush in my backyard. I'm thinking I might do a fabric piece with some paint and threadwork from these pictures. Aren't the colors and textures wonderful!
