Magnolia Leaf Stitchery 3

Stitch Mediation Last night. I have worked the stitches on a fresh magnolia grandiflora leaf and will now have to wait for this to dry a bit. The Leaves are a bit more flexible when fresh like this. I did the cross stitching first and then carefully cut the leaf away under the stitches. The pearls around the outside are the same as I used in one of the earlier magnolia leaf stitches. These will be mounted on black felt in Circle in a Square pockets and combined into one piece eventually. The Gingko leaf one was the first experiment into this sort of mounting.
