Leaves Tumble Gold Appears

Leaves Tumble Gold Appears
  Souls That Left Us behind. Rest
Lest I've Come To You

Attending a wool festival in Asheville,NC I noticed a tiny cemetery tucked within the Smokey Mountains. I had just a clue about the Challenge. My mind runs in different directions So my tentative plan was autumn, leaves, cemetery and  an old poem "Dear Ancestor" one of the lines is  "I wonder if you knew, someday I would come to visit you ". My inspiration was born.

My Size is small 9 1/2 by 12 inches. Materials used -  cotton batik fabrics,shorn/dyed wool, threads pulled from upholstery fabrics. Method  free motion embroidery and quilting, needle punch
