Big Leaves by Christen Brown
This piece started with the large linen leaf print. I chose Valdani perle cotton for the embroidery stitches because of the ombre and variegated colors. The printed fabric gave me so many opportunities to use a variety of embroidery stitches.
You can find this piece in my book the Hand Embroidery Dictionary by C&T Publishing.
Happy Stitching, ~Christen
