I hate to see you go, but I love to watch you leaf...

The leaves are really lovely right now here in eastern TN.  Yesterday Charlotte and I took a  leaf-rainbow walk.  We tried to find a leaf of every color of the rainbow. It was amazing what we found just in our yard!
I was fascinated by the Japanese Maple which had green, purple, red, orange, and yellow leaves on it all at once!  Here is my collection of them, although I couldn't reach any of the yellow ones (and almost busted it trying to...)
After we had collected the leaves, we used double-sided tape to stick them to a piece of paper - trying to follow the order of colors in the rainbow.  Charlotte thought it was fun (I did too) and it is now hanging proudly on our refrigerator.
If you live where the leaves are changing - give it a try!  Then upload the pic of your art onto the Sew Homegrown Flickr Pool so we can all see how it turned out!  Happy Friday!  jessica


  1. Beautiful! I remember doing things like that when I grew up in MN. Miss that fall foliage!

  2. I love leaves...I pick them up every time I walk! ♥
