Show Me the Way – Leaf

Now that the tulip blooms are under control, it’s time to decide what the leaves and stems will look like.

Again, I have chosen to use variegated threads to give a more natural appearance.  But instead of blending them, I’m going to use them as dyed to give gradual color changes.  On the leaves and stems, I use just 2 different variegated threads to provide the colors, one dark and one bright green.

By using a variable filler stitch, the impression is of light on shiny leaves.

Prayer: Father, help her to grow and thrive in her life and faith and the execution of her caretaker work.  Protect her and uphold her, I pray!
