    Maple Leaf Wall Hangings

    Last week I made the left wall hanging for the door of the apt. office. I liked it so much, I made another for myself... but I didn't have anymore of the dark leaves fabric for my border. After some agonizing and advice from friends, I settled on the yellow with orange maple leaves print. [I still like the one I gave away LOL] The leaf fabrics are the same and brighter like the right one.

    T is it True? H is it Helpful? I is it Inspiring? N is it Necessary? K is it Kind?

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    I really like the colors better in the one you made for yourself. The one on the right.

    Both are very nice. However, I prefer the one on the right because the maple leaves stand out more with the lighter border. The, on the left, are dominated by the border which is not my personal preference.

    I am seeing so many darling fall projects. I wish our weather would cool down enough so I could use some of this awesome inspiration!

    They are beautiful.

    So … you are reminding me of a project I've been thinking about … machine embroidery organza leaves mounted in a shadowbox …

    They're both great, but I am partial to the project on the right. I like the black outline, because it really makes the orange adjacent fabrics pop!

    Sweet little wall hangings.
