Tutorial for brick stitched flowers:http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=339521.0
Worked myself crosseyed to bead the ever famous Russian St Petersburg leaf.  I have it down very well now.  You will not find a free printable tutorial on the web for these.  (unless you are better "digger" than I am) so I am making one right here right now!!

The first leaf is done with same pattern as second but with smaller seed beads.

The small leaves shown here are my own invention.  


My smallest leaf is another I have came up with.  (Shown in this handflower bracelet at the tip)  


These are all the leaves done with black and white beads so you can see better what I am doing. Leaf one is done with size 8/0 and 11/0 seed beads.  Leaf 2 is using same pattern as one but with all 11/0 seeds. Leaf 3 is using size 8/0 and 11/0 seeds.  Leaf 4 is all 11/0's.

Smallest leaf first:  
I used 18 inches of thread and thread needles on both ends.  It is easiest this way for the both of us.










Needle thread back thru and around these center 5 white beads like so...

add on top three beads then you are done!

Now on the the second one (med size):Using 8/0 and 11/0 seed beads with 16 inches of thread and two needles on each end.










One more to go.....
RUSSIAN ST PETERSBURG  beaded leaf (this leaf deserves all capital letters!!)
2 Yards of thread and one beading needle was used.  One stop bead.

I used all large 8/0 seeds so you can see more clear.



















Done with next to smallest leaf and pearls.  Cool (gotta wear shades with that one)

I have alot to share, all you gotta do is ask.

Thanks Belruel! 
I hope I made the spring break deadline so all you poor craftsters with no fun to be found (like me) will have something to brag about when spring break is over with no hangovers involved.   Cheesy

Thanks craftsters!
Let me catch my breath from this one first lol.  It took me days to photo while beading each one.  Then another full day to put all the pics in here.  I am wore out! lol
