Comments: This is my first attempt at doing this sort of embroidery. It was not as hard as I thought it would be, but at the same time, working with metal thread is a slow process. You can't rush this. You need patience. Oaks are my very favorite trees and that ever since I was a youngster collecting leaves for some school homework assignments, so this design was just perfect for me for a new learning experience.
