For our October meeting, we did the "take home a project" from the last region meeting. Gerty attended the meeting and then taught our chapter how to do embroidery on a magnolia leaf!
When dried properly, magnolia leaves are pretty hardy and can be perforated with a pin to create something similar to perforated paper. You can then do various embroidery techniques on it.
All supplies were provided by the chapter. Check out the gallery below to see what everyone came up with!
