I then cut away the four window pane squares and added a water soluble stabilizer before I put the branches (knitting wool) and the leaves (cut from a leaf fabric) in place and stitched them down. A branch found on last Sunday's hike serves as a hanger. More pictures of the process here.

I went to flickr and saw the photos, and it looks great! Wonderful wallhanging!

Wow! The colours you have used for the leaves remind me so much of the trees on the Stirling University campus last Autumn. Very beautiful indeed.
