I wanted to try stitching on a leaf, so I tried this simple knot design, and made a little present for a friend.

Interesting.  Did you do anything to the leaf to make it last (not wither up) or is this a temporary gift?  Or, is this a real leaf?

I wish we had nice big leaves up here.  Smiley

Looking to de-stash cross stitch magazines, particularly Cross Stitch Gold or New Stitches?  Please drop me a line!  I'd love to swap or buy some missing from my library!

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

Neat! Was it hard to stitch on?

thanks!

it is a real leaf, and I didn't do anything to preserve it, I kind of like the idea of it withering away tied to a tree, with the other leaves.

I did cheat and glued a tiny piece of graph paper to the back to guide the stitches, then covered that with another piece of leaf.
