When Life Hands You a Lemon

Process for lemons, began with the saying "When Life Hands You a Lemon, Make Lemonade." Used men's shirt fabric stitched to page in loose leaf notebook/sketchbook/journal.
Pencil sketch on fabric, then permanent marker.
Cut out fabrics, traced on drawing (held up to light, a light box would be nice, but I find the window works just as well during the day).
 Yellow fabrics, FM machine stitching in yellow, orange, 2 greens, 1 blue-green. Black stitching 3 times around each form to give sketch-y look.

I love this! It's very free and easy, with the yellow patches extending out from the thread-sketching.
