While I am filling in the third leaf with the stem stitch, I thought you might enjoy seeing a piece of stumpwork that I did a while ago. The bottom forefront and back center leaves were stitched onto the fabric. The top back leaves are stumpwork, and the berries are beads covered with row after row of thread.This is a view from the side, so you can see how the leaves stand away from the piece.
Tomorrow, I will finish filling in the third leaf.
