Oak leaves – stems and acorns

I’m finishing off the embroidery today!

For the stems, I used Madeira stranded cotton no. 2213 for a bit of highlighting and 2214 for filling in the rest:

For the acorns, I used 2208, again for highlighting, and 2209 for the rest:

And that’s the embroidery done!  Right at the start, I mentioned that I wanted to do something slightly different with the background – by next time, I’ll know if that worked.
