I do these leaves with a button hole stitch, using a crochet cotton #8. I really like using this, but I was reading over at Chloe's Place , and I was interested in Lindas comments about needing to use a finer perle cotton for some stitches. This would be true for this piece too, especially where I have added lazy daisy to a seam. A finer thread would give a better result. However, I am sticking to what I have got for this, I want to limit the palette , threads and stitches used.
