Stitching/crotcheting on Leaves

In Creative Strength Training we have been doing stitch meditations which are really little fragments. I thought the leaf stitching I did a while back achieved the same sort of purpose but I hadnt realised that at the time. when I mentioned that in the closed forum one of the other participants directed me to Alic Fox's work. alice is a UK artist who works with natural found objects often in states of decay. some of her work used leaves with crotchet. Before I left to go on my scan ncut weekedn I picked up a dried leaf from the big magnolia tree at the bottom of the garden and I have crocheted around the edge. This was easier than I thought it might be. I am keen to do a collection of this sort of thing to see where it might lead now
