Leaf Table Topper

I showed this piece a few weeks ago when I was thinking of using it for  the background for the string art pieces.   This was a sun printed piece I did a long time ago at QSDS in Ohio (2009!) and measures around 15" x 20".

 Well, since I'm working on "nemo" and using a different background...figured I should finish it off and make it into a table topper!  So I did that!  Color looks pale here when, in fact, it is closer to the picture above.  But you still get the idea, right!

I didn't do a good job of taking the picture!  Guess I missed an edge!  Oops!

Yes, the bowl covers a lot of it but I love this bowl!  It was hand made by an artist in Florida.

In addition to adding the facing, I also stitched some yarn for the binding edge.  Just gave it a little something rather than a real binding!

I'm happy with how it turned out and it does look nice on the table.  Now to get back to those darn fish!


  1. I’m so glad you finished the piece into the table topper that anyone can enjoy when visiting you…..nice to get these treasures out of their storage/hiding places and put to use!

  2. LOVE it! very nice indeed, sometimes some of the simplest designs can be the most striking. (I really need to remember that more often LOL )

  3. It makes a nice display with the shaped bowl. And the yarn edge- nice touch.
