After a fruitless search for the original version of a leaf I recently took to a Sue Dennis workshop, I headed to "no-girls-land" up the hill. This is where a few acres are left as grass - inhabited by quail, coucal, kangaroos and slithery things in the summer. This weed provided a huge, hairy leaf which I pressed lightly then took to Sue Dennis's Leaf it Alone . One person's pesky weed is a textile artist's treasure. Must pick and press these enormous beauties for future play - some of them are 30cm (12 inches) or more in length.
