Grains

I'm sorry all these pictures are a little out of focus. They are really enlarged quite a bit.

This detail shows what is in the inner corner; to me it looks like a stalk of grain, appropriate for autumn. You can see 7 of 8 satin stitched maroon leaves, and a lot of empty squares that will eventually hold beads (the small ones) and specialty stitches (the large ones).

These stitches are so simple, and still, so effective.
