Oak leaves – third and final green

Finishing off the leaves with the final shade of green.  This is comprised of one strand of Madeira stranded cotton 1411 and one of 1412, filling in all the space left.

The veins up the centre of the leaf look dark, but that’s just shadow cast by the stitching meeting in the middle.  I’ve tidied that up with a single line of split stitch using two strands of 1412, the darkest shade in use on the leaf:

That’s the leaves done – stems and acorns next.
