Mainly because I've been working on this below, still..... And because my camera that was a Christmas gift is not working properly, so I had to pull out the old one and take new pictures. At night. Yuck.
So I did not pull out a practice piece. Instead I worked a few sections on my Poured Out quilt with January's motif.
But I didn't care for the random leafy thing, so I stitched a main stem in this bit below and added the leaves a bit like a feather or what looks like the way these leaves might grow on a vine.
