If you have been following this blog since the beginning you will remember this picture
By William Morris & the story of the flower / leaf. This month is all about leaves so I thought I would start with a re-visit to this fabulous textile

Please return tomorrow to see what I have done with this leaf, I shall pretend its an acanthus!
