More work on the Garden Tapestry wall hangings

I am continuing to experiment with colouring on fabric. These Pentel Fabricfun Pastel Dye Sticks are wonderful.  I used them to colour the large leaves. They coloured well, could be blended on the fabric, and were heat fixed the next day with a hot iron with no dye transfer to the pressing cloth. I think they might be the best of all that I have used.

Here I am pinning on appliqué pieces. I have also started some embroidery.
