My attempt at an oak leaf has progressed into these, not sure if anyone else has designed such a leaf so will not claim it as my own, but I am willing to share this particular pattern if there is interest.
Some oak leaves which have been blown off the trees in the wind and the rain we are now having, the temperature has dropped at least 12 degrees since last week.
"Great oaks from little acorns grow" - an old English Proverb
Great things often have small beginnings.

Love the oak leaves!ReplyDelete
English acorns are so nicely shaped - ours are just little balls, not so pretty.
Pretty colours and well done - you got there in the end with the design and all it's traumas.ReplyDelete
