Jacobean leaves embroidery pattern: 3 of 8

I particularly like the edging of this leaf. Back stitch gives it a nice smooth edge and a row of palestrina provides texture.

It was one of those embroideries where less is definitely better. If I’d only realised this from the start, it would have saved me much unpicking. But it was a valuable lesson in embroidery design.

Download the pattern here.

The first two of eight leaves can be found here and here.
