10 down...

Ten leaves done and only 57 more leaves, 7 flowers, 10 snowflakes and 1 cardinal to go.  I loooooooooove the way the leaves look.  The stems turned out really cool too.  They're three different shades of brown pearl cotton just held together and twisted a little and zig zagged down with invisible thread.  Well, the main stem is three strands, the smaller branches are two strands and the teeny one with just one leaf is one strand.

Yes, the background is already quilted.  I wanted straight lines and no stops and starts and the only way you're going to get that is quilt first.  Good thing I have that handy dandy super steam iron 'cause this is gonna be wrinkled some by the time I get everything appliqued!
