Apple tree fire screen - leaves part III

The leaves are finished, and I must say that I'm very happy with them.  There wasn't much to do to finish them off, with just the central areas of the each leaf and a little detailing to do.

For the central area, I used one strand of Madeira 1411 (the medium shade) and one of 1412 (the darkest of the three).  Here are the leaves on the right:

And the ones on the left:

Not quite finished - the very last thing was to add a vein up the centre of each leaf in split stitch, with two strands of 1412:

It's a bit hard to see the difference in the photo, so here's a close up:

The stems next, and I want to try something different!
