Mountain Oak - The last leaf

It has been another very hot week here, so I have spend endless hours armed with a hose to keep the garden alive. 


Although I didn't have much left to do on the last leaf, I have only just got around to it today. Compared to the others, the stitching on this one is simple but I am happy with the way it turned out.


                 The other elements on the same branch are more delicate - a nice contrast the solid stitching of the leaf. 


The Mountain Oak is now finished. 
Considering how limited the colour palette for this piece is, it is turning out to be rather colourful
Although I have been looking at for so long, it always surprises me how it looks when I get the pictures up on the screen, which is a really odd feeling. .
Now for those hillocks (or mountains)... 

As you may remember, I started this project as a class piece for the Alpine Experience (14th - 21st August). It is so rare and amazing to have opportunity to teach for whole week, making it ideal for a slightly large and more complex project. 
I knew the workshop was filling but it turns out there is now only ONE space left which is amazing!! If you were thinking of joining us you may have To Book pretty soon if you don't want to miss out.

Have a lovely weekend,
Anna X

  3. This is beautiful! Nice work! On the persimmons/berries, is that a blanket stitch you used? Or a different stitch?

    1. Thanks Kimberly. Yes, the berries are blanket stitch for the main, darker section and a whipped spider's web for the round bit on the end.
