DRAWING/SKETCHING NATURE for HOOKED RUG DESIGNS

SKETCH BOOK STORIES for SPRING
I noticed the leaves  all brown dead and wet stuck to the sidewalk as I walked yesterday . .
they seem so. . .  very - life over . . . .therefore I have drawn them blank . . .how would I hook them?. . . .
maybe they would come back to life in my rug . . . .
These blank leaves remind me of those rugs with empty dead faces . . .I dont know what they say to me . . .maybe thats my fault  and I have no imagination. . . . .
oh  . . .but I do love the BACKGROUND STORIES life has to tell . . . . .  ..
