Colour No.4 begins with this leaf, stitched with stem stitch outline and spine. The diagonal vein lines are a small backstitch and the dot details are french knots with two wraps. On second thought, I went back and stitched the stem of the leaf with stem stitch also.
As with the previous leaves, the outlines are stem stitched and the diagonal vein lines are backstitched, the only difference being the second line of stem around the outline of each leaf.
Colour No.4 finishes off with simple backstitch on this row of leaves. It’s a small backstitch but not teeny tiny in comparison to the veins in the colour No.2 leaves you see in this photo.
