Anthea’ Garden 

flowers E, F and G



You will not find detailed explanations for each leaf but I will publish in each article the groups of leaves to embroider with the proposed flowers.

The work of the leaves is explained in the first chapter of this project. Using the group of greens with a yellow tendency or the one with a blue tendency, you are free to mix the colors according to your choice by using the embroidery work explained in the previous article. 

Here is a reminder of the colors used in the green leaves with yellow highlights
