Another thread leaf, this one stitched to green (Green!!!) silk, and then stitched to a patched yellow background.

This is a leaf from the champion sycamore tree in the center of Sunderland. It is a fabulous tree – I may have waxed poetic about it before. It is enormous and nearly cylindrical at the base, and well over my head it branches into five big sections, all as big as a regular tree. The center of the branching is a landscape unto itself. Every time I stop, I wish I could sit up there, and explore, or contemplate life, from that point of view.
